Common Questions and Answers about Abscess nose


Avatar n tn I have an abscess right above my eye tooth on the side of my nose what can I do about it now I have a dental appointment on Friday
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..
1399266 tn?1280640704 My 8 year old cat, Kupid was diagnosed with a dental abscess about a week ago and put on clindamycin 1 ml twice a day. When she started she had a pink drainage coming from her right eye and right nostril. Her eye has gotten better and her nose has slightly improved. She is still sneezing and looks terrible but she is eating on her own. This cat has failed the pre anesthesia test twice after having complications during her spay surgery so we are reluctant to put her under to pull her tooth.
Avatar f tn My face is so swollen its causing pressure in my eye ear and nose. Ive been on cephalexin for a bit more then 24 hrs now but the swelling and pain has not subsided at all. So my question is, when can i expect relief??? And is it because of me that my dentist couldn't remove the teeth? He said that he couldn't extract them because I was too nervous and basically he 'couldn't do his job'. ( I shake bad and cry in the dentist chair and I can't help it) Or should I find a new dentist?
Avatar n tn 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. I had blood everywhere and insisted I go home and the funny thing is I got a proper deadner when they stitched it up.
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 ) After feeling the scalple slicing open my abscess, then the doctor found a previous abscess under that one and had to slice it open as well. After all of this, it was time to begin packing the wound with this stringgy gauze filled with antibiotic by using a small pair of sissors to do it. I felt everything! 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!
Avatar m tn Ive read that about 1 in 4 people are carriers, it lives on their skin and in their nose. They sell creams to kill them in the nose and I read about some kind of bath to eradicate them off your skin. I dont know if these are temporary fixes or not, meaning they just severely lower their count on your person.
Avatar n tn Hi I have a few questions first thing I have an abscess that is caused by my k9 or eye tooth and the abscess is all along the side of my nose and under my eye I went to urgent care and was given doxycycline hyclate 100mg twice a day along with pain meds but about two days after starting the meds my swelling became really bad my eye was even swollen.
Avatar n tn The first day it was just my upper lip and a small part of my cheek, now it's my lip, my whole cheek, my nose and eye which is also black now. I've tried ice packs warm salt water and none of this seems to affect the swelling at all. Is there something else I can do or should I return to the dentist or have my antibiotics changed?
Avatar n tn The s/sx progressed to sinus pressure swollen glands, cough runny nose with yellow sputum from cough and nasal. I began to feel better so nixed Dr. visit as my insurance had not started. Two days ago I began having swelling in my gums. Yesterday I found a discolored area on my gums above my front right tooth. Today the sore has progressed to my pallet and is sore and feels blister it is also bleeding. Could this be a sinus abscess?
Avatar f tn My face swelling has gone down a lot, its just the abscess itself now. It feels like a grape pushed up under my top lip, pushing into my nose! I hope it can be sorted out tomorrow. I'm glad a root canal isn't always like the horror stories that I have read!
Avatar m tn My guess is that you had an infection inside your tooth and when the bacteria spread into the pulp where the nerve and blood supply are at, it causes pain and as it traveled down into the jawbone, it spread out and created an abscess. Now you took the antibiotics and it helped with the abscess but unfortunately there's no blood flow or very little into the pulp due to the bacteria and so the bacteria still remains.
Avatar n tn I really expected to see a big ole abscess.. There is nothing wrong with my sinuses. In my life time i've only blown my nose 3 times. I get a stuffy nose occasionally, but i never have any kind of sinus trouble and dont have any now.
Avatar n tn This may be a small localized abscess of the nose (furuncle), or it might just be an area of chronic irritation. Have an ENT physician check it out.
376182 tn?1283277338 This was later coupled with pressure in my nose b/w my eyes. This ear/nose pressure has been going on for two weeks now. It occurs just about every day each episode lasting an average of 15 minutes and then subsiding. When I had the root canal done I had another X-ray done which revealed that the abscess was still there despite a week of antibiotics. Could these pressure sensations be related to the abscess in anyway? Any help would be greatly appreciated...I am at my wits end.
Avatar m tn Hello, If there is a painful and sore lump on the nose then it can be a boil or an abscess. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lump persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn It hurts quite a bit. The pain extends to my eye socket and I have frequent nose bleeding on the opposite side. I had a CT scan and a bone scan but the surgeon said ithey look okay and I should continue to give it time to heal. I'm concerned there is an infection in there that's not being addressed. Is there any other diagnostic test to determine if there's a problem such as an abscess? I do run frequent low grade fevers, have chills and night sweats.
Avatar m tn When i woke up Saturday Dec 25 the whole left side of my face was swollen so i continued to take my antibitotics and woke up sunday to find the swelling had only spreed to the underneth my eye and the side of my nose in the cornor of my eye so i called the denist back and he imidiatly took me in for an emergancy visit he has now put me on clindamycin 2 capsules every 6 hrs and it will help rid the infection and after that it will reduce the swelling and i have to see an oral surgon to remove th
Avatar n tn last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Avatar n tn I have an abscess in my nose and started taking oral antibitics. How long for the swelling to go down???
Avatar f tn anywho went to the dentist recently for swelling in my face about 2 weeks ago he said he didnt like the looks of it but was unable to pull the infected tooth due to not being specialized in whatever so gave me antibiotics and sent an urgent report to a nearby hospital that claims they can't see me for another 6 months now after 2 weeks of antibiotics and the swelling going down I woke up to the whole side of my face from jaw to eye being swollen,throwing up and my nose is stuffed up.
Avatar f tn About 4 hours later, her face had become about 3 times bigger than it was this morning. She obviously has an abscess tooth and since she has other health issues i am quite concerned that this infection could make her very ill or worse.
1077991 tn?1255906479 You probably have a infection in your nose now. Could be an abscess, could be an infection involving the cartilages, could simply be a cellulitis. You better get that checked out.
Avatar n tn So, you could see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like tonsils, the skin, tooth abscess or an ear infection. Infections like tuberculosis can cause lymph adenopathy. The other causes for enlarged nodes are tumors or inflammations to name a few. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn when i talk at length, it hurts so the doctor advised me not to talk that much. when he examined me with the scope through my nose last week he said the abscess was not coming back. but i am concerned about my tonsil still red and swollen and uvula as well after 5 days of antibiotics. my right ear hurts. not terribly, but it's there. the right side of my neck hurts, is sensitive. since i had antibiotics 1/14-2/1 as well, extra dose and steroids with the surgery, i am surprised to be sick again.
Avatar f tn (he has never done that before so it must have been painful) all I could get out of him was that the pain was at the back of his nose?? He got 2 painkillers and about and hour or so later the pain started to ease, he went to work as normal, but he is just off the phone saying his face is feeling a little unconfortable and the pain seems to be coming from his upper front teeth?? Can anyone provide any answers.... please...
Avatar n tn You could see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like tonsils, the skin, tooth abscess or an ear infection. Infections like tuberculosis can cause lymphadenopathy. It would be worthwhile to see if other lymph groups are enlarged namely, axilla and groin, these can be palpated. If persisting consult your doctor for an evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
