Abscess on elbow

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on elbow


Avatar f tn Since then I developed a small swollen mass on the inside of my gum which was there for about two months, but haven't had any pain in the tooth since then. On Monday, the mass on my gum went away and my cheek and jaw swelled up. I've been taking Bactrim and Keflex since then. The swelling has gone down some. For the past two days I've had an extremely intense burning and tingling feeling in my left hand up to my elbow.
211940 tn?1267884866 I just registered on here today to see if i could find anything for that exact symptom. I am 21 and having the same syptoms in my right arm I thought maybe it was contributed to being on the computer all day at work and got a wrist brace for when I type, that has not helped, I have gotten to where I have to sleep on my left side with two pillows in front of me to lay my right arm on and it still does not help that much I wake up off and on all through the night.
Avatar n tn I have on bump on the outside of my arm about 2 inches below my elbow. It looks like it has a little hole in the center of it. I've had it about a month now, but the last week it has gotten a little bigger and hurts if I push on it. Last night I was actually able to squeeze white stuff out of it. Is this something I should get checked out or should I wait another week to see if it goes away on its own?
Avatar n tn Hi, Recently I've noticed I got strange pimples on my outer elbows. They don't itch and they are not filled with abscess unlike acne. When I pinch them strongly a yellow like liquid comes out of them. I feel a certain inconvenience when I lean my elbows on a desk but other than that I only noticed them when my girlfriend asked me about it. Please see the following link for a picture of my left elbow in case the attached picture doesn't show : (copy & paste) http://imageshack.
Avatar n tn I have a round rash on my forearm, this is what i know: - It started as a small lump under my skin, i could feel it and press against it. - It evolved a very tiny pimple exactly on and around a hair folicle in my forearm. - Ive had psoriasis in the past. - My skin has been very dry, even my face, i dont think ive drank more than 10 glasses of water for the last 2 weeks (yes soda, beer, flavoured drinks, but not much). - The weather has been extremely dry and cool for the last month or so.
Avatar f tn I am a 53 year old woman who has a large bump on my right occipital bone. I just noticed this 6 months ago. I have had a stiff neck for 10 months. I also experience headaches daily. I went to my PCP and she said that I should get a massage, I did. I then returned 3 months later and she said to have physical therapy without telling me what the bump was on my head. I am now experiencing a tingling feeling and numbness in my right had in my 4th and 5th digit.

468836 tn?1215479716 Now however, i'm not stressed i just seem to pass out all over the place, in the bath and when i'm on my own, its getting dangerous, but the doctors don't seem to realise that. I went to hospital last week because i fell down the stairs, i tripped over the cat and got knocked out hitting the wall, they found i have a problem with blood clotting aswell, i don't know if this can be whats causing dizziness. They found nothing wrong and sent me home. My head hurt and i'd twisted my wrist.
Avatar n tn Wow your symptoms sound exactly like mine, i had to do a double take to make sure that it wasnt my post. I have a lump on the bottom rib on the left side under my breast. I had it checked out at docs and it feels like bone matter and doesnt move at all it is firmly stuck. I only noticed it since i had my first child. It seems like it could be scar tissue from when i cracked the rib years ago when i had a really bad cough (believe it or not!!).
Avatar n tn My right elbow has been very sore for about a month now, when i lift anything it hurts all the way down to my wrist, two days ago the tip of my elbow became very sore and now has a bump on the tip that is about quarter size, i popped it and it was a little puss bump, it seems to be getting bigger in size and more sore.
Avatar m tn My name is Hank about six weeks ago I had an abscess the size of a large credit on my right arm near the crease of your arm I had it removed surgically and everything went fine with the recovery over a four week period at the point of seeing the doctor to get the stitches out I complained of a pain in my left elbow which I felt was due to a prior surgery 10 years ago which was called tennis release Tendons are reattached into the bone area and everything went fine with the surgery as well I've
Avatar f tn I even heard of a woman who had it on her elbow so thats to be expected i guess. I've been all by myself for a year now with no partner because i honestly dont want one. I find myself being lonely at times but at least being single gives you time to heal and clear your head, i have trust issues and find myself psychologically affected by this disease as well.
Avatar n tn I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse.
2188521 tn?1338173246 Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of a boil or abscess. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! There are 3 possibilities for pulsating vein in the temples: temporal arteritis, tension headache and migraine. Please read this discussion on MedHelp: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Symptoms/messages/3011.html It could be a referred dental pain due to caries or abscess. It could also be due to chronic sinusitis. I think you should discuss this with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar n tn and it isn't red like the smaller bumps... but I have noticed three red bumps on in the same area on my arm. I have pain in my elbow... and now I have a small red bump on my other arm... I have pain in that elbow as well. I am sure I should go get it checked out... but I am curious as what it could be!?
Avatar m tn The only trauma that ive had in the past year is golfers elbow on both of my elbows from working out. 8 days ago i got cortisone injected into where the bumps are located, but the size and pain of them has not gone down whatsoever. If someone could, please offer some insight into this problem and what can be done to relieve the pain. Ive attached a picture of my right arm highlighting the location of the bumps. ( there are specifically two eraser head sized bumps on each arm). http://i17.
579258 tn?1250652943 Of the 4 areas, the middle one is healed, the bottom one is draining a little and has a knot forming underneath it, the top one is draining a lot and has a large knot forming underneath and around it and the one on my hip fills and then about every 3 days it drains. Sorry .. there is no prettier way to describe it. Since I was supposed to be better .. I kept telling myself and willing myself to BE BETTER! Mind over matter .. isn't that what they say?
Avatar m tn It's in the bend of my elbow on the inside. The first day it appeared it was very tender and now its just there, doesn't hurt and Saturday will be two weeks. It appeared one day after I went swimming in a local swimming hole from a lake runoff. Any ideas? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5147776/photo.
Avatar f tn my husband has been on suboxone for 7 months. Last saturday he partially detatched his lower bicept and was put in a cast for a few days until he could be MRI'ed. A boil and infection exploded at his elbow (previous injection site)thursday nite. Emergency surgery was done and the dr asked me if he was an active iv drug user. I explained it was in the past...the dr says it has to be a recent "miss".
Avatar m tn Why they come back is due to various things such as, a break in the skin, shaving, insect bites, leaning on the elbow etc. When you heal from a wound it does sometimes hurts after and that may be all it is. It can also be due to scarring. But it could still be possibly an abscess. I can only say if you don't trust your doctor to get another opinion and see what they say. If it was active I would think it would be growing and you would get a fever.
Avatar n tn I also have studied any where from 6 to 12 hours a day for nine months leaning on my left arm and flexing the muscles in the left chest and axilla to the point of having to wear a protective patch on my elbow to keep from wearing the skin away. Now I am scheduled for a biospy of the enlarged lymph node.
Avatar n tn A small bite-like bump appeared on my arm yesterday morning - was there when I woke up. No cuts, scrapes, or visible bite marks, just a small white pimple-looking head and some redness surrounding the area. It is located in the inside of my right arm, a few inches above my wrist. By last night, I had a red streak a couple of inches long that seemed to be following the same path as a vein I can see under my skin.
Avatar f tn Alright, get ready for this. About 2.5 weeks I realized I had swollen bumps under my right armpit. These got bigger and bigger quickly and started to hurt, but not too much. Some of them were red. I went to my doctor and she said it was just an infection and put me on antibiotics. Couple of days later, and on antibiotics, there was a new lump/node/whatever it is and that one hurt trmendsouly, even just barely touching it.
Avatar m tn hi male and 21, so around four months ago i notice this lump behind my right ear not on the ear just behind it.
Avatar n tn I am a eczema sufferer from childhood behind my knees and crease of elbow and back of elbow. Now as a adult I only have in on my right elbow crease and behind. But for the past 11 years I have had a small rash on my buttocks as well right in the crease. It normally begins to itch once I get hot there from sitting or waiting to use the bathroom (end up slightly sweating) something. I was told from the dermatologist that it is eczema and that you can get it there.
Avatar m tn My 6 yr old son had an abscess on his right forearm between the elbow and wrist in middle which was 13mmx7mm . After 4 weeks , one day it suddenly started leaking i mean the pus from the abscess and we got it drained and cleaned . He was given 4 more days of antibiotics on the day of drainage , moxclav and fusidin cream to apply in the area for 10 days and to keep the area clean. The place of the abscess is flat now and little redness around the whole from where it was drained .
Avatar n tn Any abscess or infection, as well as cysts, hydroceles or varicoceles can be seen on an ultrasound. Obtaining urine tests as well as urethral swab can be done to look for urethritis as well as STDs. The prostate can also be evaluated via a digital rectal exam. A prostatic massage can be done and the prostatic fluid sent for analysis and culture. If there is suspicion of an abscess, a transrectal ultrasound can be considered.
Avatar f tn I have had 5 abscesses in the past 3 weeks, 2 of which were on my hip, one on my thigh, one on my elbow, and the current one on my face. I have read that facial abscesses are serious so I went to an emergency room and the doctor was awful he did everything that was not recommended.. No numbing and he dug into it with a hollow 18 gauge needle and squeezed, then informed me verbally and on paper to squeeze it 3-4 times a day of which I know you do not do because it can push the infection further.
168348 tn?1379360675 Half the scar had abscess and the other side was ok and 1/4" above is where I had the infected granuloma removed 6 weeks post-op and he went deep to be certain got it all and that was benign .. scar tissue from an unknown infected cyst that infected the incision. I know many have asked for a recent pic .. HERE IT IS!
