Abscess near the eye

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess near the eye


Avatar m tn I went to the dentist today and they pulled the root they said that it was most likely the cause of the abscess and after an hour and a half in the chair they finally pulled the roots. I am a little worried because the botched filling (meant to be a crown) has signs on the tooth that this was the cause of the abscess and my cheek is still very large ( a little more embarassing presenting in public than anything) as there is no pain.
Avatar f tn My 9 month old cat recently had an abscess that burst on his side. I took him to the vet two days ago and he was put on amoxicillin. Today, right next to the burst abscess there is another abscess formed. There are not visible wounds so there is nowhere to drain from. He does not feel warm to touch on his nose or his ears. The vet is closed for two days and there are no emergency clinics near me. Please offer advice on how to help my Oliver.
Avatar f tn I have an abscess; upper right; the tooth broke off only some left close to the gums. My cheek is swollen near right side of nose and mouth and up under my right eye; very bad pain. Dentist put me on penicillin. My question is can they pull the tooth out while I am swollen? and how bad will it feel when they pull it? I have a fear of dentist and I will get it pulled out because I am more worried about the infection spreading to my brain ect..
Avatar n tn I was pissed! The ER doctor first stuck a huge, long needle into my thigh near the abscess, which went about half way into my leg. This was a VERY painful procedure and it barely took away the pain (honesty I felt EVERYTHING!) Once my leg was "supposedly" numb, he then proceded to to slice open the wound "so it could drain more.
Avatar n tn 1 in pill form the other a topical cream to apply to the abscess. By that night, it had grown twice the size it was earlier in the day. I couldn't take the pain anymore, and frankly, it got so big its scary so I went to the ER the next morning. The ER Dr said it may be MRSA. He gave me a couple pain pills, numbed the area by inserting a needle, and then used a bigger needle to see if it was ready to drain. He said it wasn't ready yet and he called my OBGYN.
Avatar n tn It is no longer in my throat or near my ear or eye. it seems to be only around the infection site now. my face almost looks normal and the pain has subsided a lot. I slept through the night only waking once for the first time since Sunday. I didn't notice any other effects like itching or redness. I was running a fever and shaking when I was In the er. It was a little hard to breath after the iv and my last dose of it. I felt heavy too.
Avatar n tn Another more likely scenario is that the abscess will escape the jaw bone and spread to the soft tissue of the head which is extremely dangerous. It can spread down the neck and cause breathing problems or spread to the spaces near the brain. 2) I'm not familiar with your financials but you may want to contact your local dental society and see if there are any resources available for your situation.
Avatar m tn I had an LVI princess crown on my tooth behind the extracted tooth which was pulled off during my extraction. Dentist put my crown back on then said due to the abscess the tooth should drain. My question is twofold after 2 weeks i(btw the 'clot' is in place over the hole') should my lips and jaw be swollen and should my LVI crown be missisfitting? LVI uses light to bond crowns - this dentist used a glue to re-bond my crown I am concerned that I may have an infection with the glue they used.
Avatar n tn It is a tiny gland inside each of the labia near the opening of the vagina, one gland on each side. They produce fluid that lubricates the vagina. There are tiny ducts in the gland and if those get 'clogged' up by skin cells or secretions, it can form a cyst - (a fluid filled sac). The cyst can grow from the size of a dime to larger than a golf ball. They can be tender and very painful when they are infected.
Avatar n tn Well, anyways, it has been four days now, and the headache has continued to grow, it has spread from the left side of my head and into the right. the weird thing is that it hurts more in the new location than it did where it started. I occasiaonaly have throbbing pains in my ears such as an earache, but much shorter lasting, sometimes accompanied by pressure.Today it Felt like i had a throbbing pain in the top of my eye for about 45 seconds.
Avatar n tn 1. Bathing in tea helps, but because my itch is near the vagina, bathing in tea is not a good idea in the long run because it changes the pH balance down there, which could lead to other problems (over-growth of bacteria or yeast that's not suppose to be there). But if your itch is elsewhere on the body, then it really helps. 2. Icing helps to numb the pain, but not good for long term use because you're skin will get desensitize to the shock and the effectiveness of icing will slowly go away.
Avatar m tn At first, I thought it was hemroids, but didn't get any blood in my stool, nor during my wipe. It's painful when I contract that area, but I didn't feel any lump near the opening of my sphincter. This small pimple is near towars my tail bone opening, but still near my anal area. I am afraid it being some kind of STD, as I had unprotected oral sex. I tested for HIV, and came out negative. Around this time, I had very minor body ache, and fever. It's been about 3 weeks since.
Avatar n tn Fast forward to 2 nights ago I noticed a dull throbbing ache not on the tooth itself but on the gum all the way up near where the inner cheek meets the gumline. I had experienced pain with this tooth in recent past (sensitivity to hot and cold) but this pain was in a completely different location. Yesterday morning my cheek was swollen.
Avatar f tn Hello, it's been 1 week now and the cyst in my eye is gone but the lump near my ear hasn't. I'll give it another week or so as it isn't affecting me at all.
Avatar m tn I agree with the other two comments. An abscess can cause pain through your entire mouth, near the ear, eye, etc. Sometimes the pain is so bad overall that you can't even tell which tooth is bothering you. You would definitely need antibiotics to clear the infection and then take care of the problem itself. If you can't get in to see your dentist on an emergency basis, the ER will give you something to help until you can get into the dentist. Good luck. An abscessed tooth is no fun at all.
17210770 tn?1456233708 Yea I take my prenatal everyday this time it started with a swollen gland near my ear then I got all blocked and started coughing now when I cough it feels like the baby is going to burst out my stomach all the muscles hurt its horrible and to top it off I'm not sure if I have an abscess or if it's something Else but the side where the gland first come up now my jaw hurts I can hardly open my mouth I've got loads of gland up on the inside of my mouth it hurts right up to my eye I can't sleep pro
Avatar m tn It doesn't sound like a normal zit. Squeezing could be spreading the infection. If it is an abscess the spot will fester until the core root has been removed and you may require a nurse or doctor may need to remove it. As the hot compress is helping to bring the rubbish to the surface, do this rather than squeeze. I would make an appointment to see the doctor as you may require an antibiotic to kill off any infection.
Avatar f tn My face is all swollen. And my eye is still drooping. The dentist said he had to do a lot of work in there because the infection was pretty serious. The Oxy masked the pain I should have been feeling. I missed the warning signs and now I have to heal. Thank God I stopped taking the Oxy when I did. In the month I have been clean I had two kidney stones causing damage to my kidney and teeth that are infected and needing immediate treatment. This is real life.
Avatar m tn THIS CAN CAUSE THE INFECTION TO GET IN YOUR EYE. Use the top of your wrist to wipe the water out of your eyes. You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor.
Avatar m tn because i just got antibiotics from urgent care for it and my face swelling seems to be getting worse.
587315 tn?1333556383 If diarrhea is persistent, immediate vet care is vital. Hemorrhage - any bleeding from a body opening, the eye, or the inner ear, or pulsating blood from a cut or wound. Even if the bleeding stops, the cat should be seen immediately by a vet. Change in Gum Color - if any change in a cat's normally pink gums become white, blue, yellow, or bright red, see a vet immediately.
Avatar n tn okay i've had this for about 3 days now which is my first time. it's stinging because it's near the place i pee. then on top of that i've had the flu & today i started my period again so it stings x289432 when i pee. :( i've started my period cycle about 2 1/2 years ago i think i see the puss area which is where it stings. unless i'm looking at the wrong thing.
211940 tn?1267884866 The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. When a person reaches overhead, the tendons that move the shoulder must glide almost two inches past a bone surface. The acromion is the large bursa in the shoulder that protects and cushions the tendons as they glide beneath the shoulder blade.
Avatar m tn Next day after taking it, the pain when tapping on my crown went away but then sensitive again in the back area above the gum and near the sinus. No swelling this time,no abscess, but a person told that my chick was red near below my eye near the jaw bone. To day, after 3 days of taking the antibiotics is better, there is no sensitivity near the gum only above, hurts or sensitive w/hen y press above my tooth near the jaw or chick( face).
1356258 tn?1277667850 I am not sure if it was bacterial or viral, but my husband and myself caught it, and the antibiotic eye drops have helped. The kittens are very energetic, have gained weight (mostly in the belly) and are always playing (sometimes very roughly). They tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, were wormed, received feline distemper shot and Revolution (for fleas and ear mites). Today I noticed a bump or growth on the nose of one of the kittens.
Avatar n tn I am 19 and have had the same small paper-cut like slices on the inner lips of the vagina, also near the anus and the top bit of the vagina. I had a breakout of dermititis from stress just before these cuts appeard and think it may have been related to that. The cuts were there for about 3 weeks and would not heal and I couldn't wipe or touch down there because I would have sharp stinging pains from the cuts re-opening.
Avatar f tn Keeping the abscess for long time might have caused this.I would suggest don't take any medicine further on your own now.Visit the dentist near you as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn It is perfectly circular, around the wound her skin is swolled, all her hair is gone around the bite and the wound is dark in color. It almost looks like it could be a brown recluse bite. I am taking her to the vet in the morning. Any ideas what this might be?
