abscess

Avatar n tn It went away in a few days. She said its an abscess. I got another one now and its really small comapared to the one I had before but its on the right side this time she prescribed me dicloxacillin again and said it should go away soon. This time it didn't need to be popped because its really small and donts hurt at all like the first one. Hope this helps but I do suggest to anyone to not rely on a fourm / website for info to go to a doctor or emergency room to get it taken care of.
Avatar m tn This has been going on for about a 2 years. Sometimes it happens every few weeks, sometimes a month, or sometimes I'll get 2 within a few days of each other. I can always tell when there is going to be a breakout, because it will feel like my pubic hair is sore, probably near the base of it. The breakouts always consist of a small cluster of about 6 different sized white pimple like blisters, with red irritated areas around them. The breakout site usually is about a half inch in diameter.
Avatar n tn I also have a pea sized spot near my clit. Went to the docs. She said to have lots of very hot baths. Tried this for a week along with the cream she gave me but it didn't go away. Went back and she gave me oral antibiotics but it still hasn't gone! Realy worried it might be cancer but doc didn't suggest this. She did say it might need lancing. OHHH! don't fancy that! Has anyone had this done? Will have to go back to doc soon. Help.
Avatar f tn About two days ago, I found a large lump on my outer vagina/groin area, near the bikini line. It is about an inch. It is swollen, tender, and red. I don't feel any hard bumps inside, it's just a large lump. It is painful just to walk or sit down. I don't think it is an ingrown hair because I've had those before, and it looks nothing like this. Also, when I had an ingrown hair, it was not this painful as the lump I have right now. Can anyone please help me? It would be much appreciated.

Avatar f tn Yesterday I had chills very tired but no fever but I also have multiple sclerosis. Today along with the lump, I felt more of the same way as well as a pain near my right ovary as if I was going to get my period. I am 48 years old and I guess premenopausal as my period does not follow a regular schedule anymore, so the pain near my ovary dif not concern me. Because I was feeling feverish even though I have no fever ,I fell asleep for a little while.

Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.

Avatar n tn I also took 7 days of cipro and 21 days of doxycycline in case it was a epididimitis or some other low grade infection they couldnt detect. Then the pressure continued up into my abdominal area near the hip bone. The pressure comes and goes but started to happen more and more frequently. Its worst when im sitting, spreads out when I lie down and is most comfortable standing or sitting on the toilet. Had a ct scan of my addominal and pelvis area.
Avatar f tn I knew my joint pain was linked to a parasite but my hamstrings have been chronically tight and I to have some sort of abscess weird skin situation near my anus so I may have cracked the final code of my chronic pain. Apparently black walnut can be searched as a remedy to fissures (and parasites too- which might be underneath all of our symptoms)!
Avatar f tn Not sure whats going on bu I had a crop of boils approx two weeks ago in groin area and back of thighs. My Gp gave me antibiotics which I finished a week ago. The bolis had subsided dramatically and wernt red or causing trouble. Anyway over the last few days I have come out in another crop in a differnt area , my glands are very swollen , red and painful, Ive got quite bad stabbing pain in my left lower back radiating to the abdomen on the left side and blood in my urine.
Avatar m tn My dad went through numerous surgeries regarding a perennial abscess near his groin, after a few surgeries a fistula was developed is that normal? Another issue he is having now is when he urinates he sees pieces of stool also coming through with the urination, and when he passes gas he sees his inner thigh inflate and at times some stool. His wounds are left open by his surgeon for any puss/bacteria that gets built up to naturally leave the body.
Avatar m tn Lately, he says, the discomfort has receded but he now seems to have developed a painful pimple in the groin area near his scrotum. Are the two problems likely to be connected? The weather in our city is presently quite humid, and this may also have something to do with his problems.
Avatar m tn Could these still be lingering from the past infection? The nodes are on both sides of neck, near or on the carotid artery. Near thyroid gland but maybe wider out on neck.

Avatar n tn It presents with a rash, itching, and pimples or pustules near a hair follicle in the neck,, back groin, or genital area. The pimples may also crust over. Hot, moist compresses may promote drainage of the affected follicles. Treatment may include oral or topical antibiotics. However, it can recur. If it persists, it would be best to have this evaluated further for proper management. This could lead to boil or skin abscess and become infected.Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I am experiencing pain on my left side near the abdoman area from front to back. The skin there is tender to the touch. My stomach seems to be swollen. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn For the last few years, I've been getting boils in my groin and and on my butt. Typically, they form along my butt crack (for lack of a better term) or in my groin (usually to the side where my thigh touches the groin area). I've looked up a lot of info on herpes and my problem doesn't quite seem to match the photos or descriptions I've found for herpes.
Avatar m tn Lymph node was swollen on right groin near the abscess, constant pain in the back of the head in neck, maybe a gland there. But not really flu symptoms I would say, mild fever especially. Anyway i know the only answer will come when I get tested. But it is a little confusing when so many symptoms of an anal abscess are the same as seroconversion, also now that the abscess has cleared up and the night fevers continue, it is deeply worrying. Just praying and I'm not usually a religious person.
Avatar m tn Sometimes the infection is nowhere near the puncture to the skin. Cellulitis is extremely painful and painful to touch, there may be fever and chills and the area will be very red and inflamed. It is treated by antibiotics if not too advanced. If your uncle's boil oozed any pus and you touched that then you will have picked up bacteria. But not necessarily got infected. Your uncle needs to see his doctor with regard to his boils. Bacteria from boils can spread internally.
Avatar m tn There are swollen lymph nodes in my both side of neck and persistent cough not dry for more than one year. every time I feel tied without any reason. i went near a doctor. he test many thing and said I have allergies. He gave medicine and time to time he change the medicine. but that medicine never work .i m so worried about it.i came to know that these are symptoms of hiv also. i m not sexually active. but few years ago for a week I m active .but always I used protection.
Avatar m tn Thank you for the response. The lump near my anus increased. I went to the doctor and I have an abscess that needs to be removed. I am really scared. Does this change your opinion on my status or further hiv tests.
Avatar f tn Fungal infection usually responds to anti-fungal medications. Anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum. Pus drains out if the skin over the abscess breaks. An abscess usually results from an acute infection of a small gland just inside the anus. An anal fistula, on the other hand, usually results from a previous abscess.It is a small tunnel connecting the anal gland from which the abscess arose to the skin outside the anus.
Avatar m tn Hi, I"ve been experiencing since a few days some itching near my genital area, mostly in the skinfolds. Late night yesterday the itching got worse after I took off my clothes, and I've noticed some bumps. After I washed my genital area and applied zinc cream, the bumpy rash disappeared. The skin near my genital area also cracked, but I think the cause was because the underwear I wore was too tight. Yesterday I noticed a dry brown patch near my left tigh in the skinfold of my genital area.
