Avatar m tn There is still a little wound from the surgeon left and next to it there is the abscess again.
Avatar m tn Sorry you got an abscess. Sounds like they cleaned the wound well. Yes swelling at day 3 should be okay. It will be sore also. Keep an eye on it. It should start to go down in a day or two. It depends on how deep they went and the location. Did they give you antibiotics? If so then be sure to take the whole course. If it gets a lot worse go back and see your doctor. But usually it gets worse one day (around day 3) then better the next. Then should start looking better and heals.
Avatar f tn I had an abscess in my right breast 10 years ago and it left a little lump after it healed. Two weeks ago I developed an abscess in the same spot. My GP recommended a week of antibiotics (Augmentin) and it started to drain on its own two days back. I feel a thickened area which hasn't gone down. Should I be worried? The abscess continues to drain slowly and I have covered it with sterilized gauze. Please help.
Avatar f tn Hi there. Gosh, this sounds terrible. I'm sorry you are going through all of this. You've been through it before (do you have a condition causing these cysts called hydroadenitis?) so know what to expect. This is different. Honestly, I'd check in. This is your health and if you feel like something isn't right, follow up on that.
Avatar n tn Why do I still have pain in my breast abscess wound after my breast abscess incision heals?
Avatar f tn It appears to be an abscess and quite a bad one. What you can do in the meantime is use 3% hydrogen peroxide on it to clean it out. With it being that large though just the hydrogen peroxide won't do much other than simply cleaning it so it (hopefully) doesn't get any worse in the time being. They need to take it to a vet so it can get antibiotics and proper treatment. An abscess is formed when the animal gets scratched or bit and the bacteria from the other animal stays inside the wound.

1657910 tn?1302375661 My doctor ordered cultures of the fluid to see what grows. Nothing every grows in my case. Yes it is a new abscess that delevoped in the same spot as the abscess that was surgically removed in Dec 2010. My surgeon did tell me it could happen again. So I wasn't to shock that it developed again just bummed out that it happen again. I was very happy when the surgeon did say I wouldn't have to have surgery again. I don't want to have to heal from a open wound again.
Avatar n tn I went to see the dentist this past Saturday. I have a tooh abscess - with swelling in the cheek area. My dentist started me on antibiotics. My question is, how long will it take for the swelling to go down? It's been approximately 48 hours and it still feels about the same size. What would happen if it were to burst? At what point would I need to go to the ER.

Avatar n tn It felt like he was poking the abscess with the sharp sissor and then dragging it around the inside edges of the wound. Another very painful and tramatic experience! He wanted me to come back to the hospital the very next day because I also had an infection inside called cellulitis which is "a very serious condition" and must be watched carefully. Usually the packing remains inside the abscess for two days and then removed.
Avatar m tn The causes of non healing groin abscess could be due to underlying infection, low supply of oxygen to the wound that is reducing the healing process, underlying diabetes, or due to underlying dermatitis. Wounds heal slower in smokers or alcoholics .Discuss with your doctor the above mentioned possibilities. Do keep us posted. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor 2day 6/15/2011 because I had a Large swollen hard bump on the left side of my vagina wall & the pain was gettin unbearable I could no longer sit so the doc cut it open & drained it. It was diagnose to be a VAGINAL ABSCESS so now the pain is gone the swelling went down a LIL bit but its still there & very swollen (YUK) ...... ? Do u think the swelling will eventually go down & my VAGINA will go back to normal .....
Avatar n tn I just recently had another MRI which showed no abscess present but a mild broad based disc bulge at L3-4 and L4-5. Could this be related to the abscess? I had an MRI about two days after the site was lanced the first time since they were concerned about meningitis. Also, are epidural abscesses very common? What is the main cause of them? I had an unbelievable uneventful pregnancy but this has really made me question whether I want to have another child.
Avatar f tn I noticed he had a patch of hair on hos head that was hard so I tried to see if there was some sort of cut, in the process this spot starting oozing a thick milky substance, no blood though. I am asumming iy was puss, there is also a read lump now, howeveer i am still unable to see anything. The spot on his head seems to be sensitive and tender to him! What could this possibly be and should it be vet checked?
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a tooth out next to my front tooth about 6 years ago and it got an abscess after the gum healed and closed about 6 months later. I have a wound outside the gum and I feel the abscess when I press under my nose. I have been to a surgeon and the xray showed a dark spot, but when they cut the gum I felt it all and cried and cried. Due to having high blood pressure they didn't numb the area well at all, so I made them stop.
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
Avatar n tn Let me tell you from FIRST HAND experience because just had emergency surgery because my outer lip got SUPER swollen and in just 2 days it showed to be an aggressive abscess in just 2 days that abscess got 2 inches deep and took over my entire outer lip that it looked like I had elephantitus and the open sore was getting larger at a very rapid rate of speed, something told me to go to the emergency room that my life was in danger because of it so "from the time I got there to the time the s
Avatar n tn A hematoma or blood under the wound as well as an abscess or infection.
Avatar f tn If the strength of the site is compromised a wound can be pulled apart even much later. I once had an abdominal incision abscess and it nearly turned into gangrene. I'd call the doc at least, and if the drainage is not clear but like pus and/or has a bad odor, I would treat it with urgency.
Avatar n tn She scratched it and by yesterday it was a dime-sized open wound. I cleaned the wound and applied some antibiotic ointment. By this morning it was larger ( she keeps scratching and licking the area) Again, I cleaned it and applied ointment. I also tried to contact our vet, but he didn't call back. This evening the wound is even larger--about 1.5 x 2.5 cm. The wound is pink, clean, and has no odor or discolored drainage. I have clipped and filed her claws, butr don't know what else to do.
Avatar f tn Just noticed yesterday that my cat has a puncture wound near his anus. He has been licking it incessantly and there is a raw area around it. He does not seem to be in pain (I can touch the area with no big reaction) and seems fine otherwise. Will this just heal? Is there something I can do at home? He has a very traumatic history with vets and I would like to avoid taking him in if at all possible.
1080889 tn?1260951865 One thing to watch out for is that your wound must be able to breath (gauze is good because it lets air in and keeps dust out!). If you pack it too tightly, you could pick up a secondary anaerobic infection which is very, very bad. The good news is, if you pack it according to your doctor's directions, this complication is easy to prevent.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with recurrent subareolar breast abscess in 1988, I have had 10 surgeries duct and tissue have been removed and tribes but into drain..this foe seven years I had no issues and then if was back again in the other breast. Had one surgery then and no more issues for that breast. However my last my other breast no so lucky. It has been three years and no relief....just got back from Dr. And he did say we could try surgery but from past experiences it caused more issues for me.
Avatar f tn Hello, Unfortunately, it is not a good idea to go swimming when you have an open wound. I am in the same boat, and I am sad about it too...I haven't been able to swim all summer this year :( It is really important to stay active, though, so finding another activity that you can participate in would be a really good idea. If you don't want to take antibiotics, you can tell your doctor "no.
Avatar f tn I have an abscess that developed in my underarm and went through 5 iterations of infection, lancing, draining, antibiotics over an 8 week period, before finally going to a surgeon to get some relief. I had surgery 4 weeks ago where he removed a golf ball size cyst from the area. Since then have been back in the ER 2 more times for more lancing, draining, antibiotics. The surgeon keeps saying, its left over infection and it will heal eventually.
Avatar f tn Sorry for another question. Is the perianal abscess or the opening of an anal fistula considered as an open sore/wound? Many thanks in advance.
