Avatar f tn Three years ago I had a large abscess on my stomach, which I let pop on it's own. I went to the doctor right after it popped and he swabbed it, and it tested positive for MRSA. I was put on antibiotics and it cleared up after a week or two. About a year after that, I got another abscess on my face, and it grew fairly big. My face swelled and I could barely open my right eye.
Avatar n tn The pus forms inside the abscess as the body responds to the bacteria. Antibiotics are not required in the treatment of a simple abscess, unless the infection is spreading into the skin around the wound known as "cellulitis" (which I had).

Avatar f tn Immediately the following day I was sent back to my oral surgeon's office which is attached to a hospital.

Avatar f tn I had severe pain in my stomach (ribcage) yesterday after I had taken food which was spicy and sour. I am also being treated for dental abscess with nikomox and another medicine. I have been passing stool 3-4 times a day from the time I started medicine. Anyway i took an antacid (eno) and suddenly I vomited all the food with lots of water and the pain has subsided. Its still there but not so much. I have also noticed my stomach is severely bloated from the past 2 days.
Avatar f tn Then there are indeed all kinds of laxatives that will cause all the muscles in the guts to surge and push, and eventually the waste will come out, but that way sort of hurts with the cramping and all. But a combination of laxatives and enemas, with the BabyLax for any that gets stuck at the very end, that should "clean you out.
Avatar f tn 6 months back I had suffered from gatrex/gatritis(vomiting green fluid, burning sensation in stomach, green colored urine in morning and afternoon, pain in upper abdomen) which was treated successfully.

1012432 tn?1250879669 Hi Welcome to the forum! It depends on the location of the pain. Since you call it stomach, I assume the pain is in upper part of abdomen that is referred to the back. This can be due to duodenal ulcer, GERD, liver problems, pancreatitis, sub diaphragmatic abscess or gall bladder problems like stones. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps.

Avatar n tn Pain and cramping in and around umbilicus could be due to abdominal causes or due to a cause in the umbilicus itself. The common abdominal causes are appendicitis, IBS, Crohn’s disease, umbilical hernia, cystitis or due adhesions if there is a history of previous surgery. Causes within the umbilicus include a boil or a fistula or abscess. Along with a clinical examination, you may need an ultrasound or a CT scan to confirm diagnosis. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn I had a really bad time last night, and almost had went to the ER due to the pain in my stomach. It's kind of like a cramping pain that comes and goes. As a last resort, I took a half dose of Peptol-Bismol (I'm on a one tablet pre day PPI) and surprisingly felt better in 5 minutes. So, I'm pretty sure the pain is in my stomach and not my bowels. All this is becoming really frustrating - des anyone have any ideas refering to the first post?

Avatar n tn That's probably why some people can tolerate canned or cooked over frozen. The canning and cooking kills the enzymes present in the fresh pineapple. I've done a number of fresh pineapple juice fasts and I'm fine with ONLY pineapple. If there is anything else in my digestive system it's painful for me. So, just my observations in case it helps anyone.
