Abscess on eye

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on eye


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 m tn 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. The cheek has changed shape but is still large and moved down towards my jaw instead of up near my eye. How long does the abscess take to drain? as the dentist was looking for drainage that never came.
Avatar m tn i had this abscess in my right nostril two weeks back and all the puss was drained out by myself,which was a lot. Now it is back in my right nostril with excruciating pain for the past 4 days inspite of my physician put me on anti-biotics as well as pain killers. The swelling and pain has spread into my right cheek and my eye hurts every time i blink.......
Avatar m tn 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 n tn As the eye has got worse, I would seek medical advice and have the eye looked at. She may need an antibiotic eye cream or drops as well as the tablets your doctor will give you advice on this. To help, apply cold compresses, like a flannel dampened in cold water. Wishing her a speedy recovery.
Avatar m tn Would a gum abscess cause shooting pain from gum area across cheek to eye, and down neck?
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 f tn Three years ago I had a large abscess on my stomach, which I let pop on it's own. I went to the doctor right after it popped and he swabbed it, and it tested positive for MRSA. I was put on antibiotics and it cleared up after a week or two. About a year after that, I got another abscess on my face, and it grew fairly big. My face swelled and I could barely open my right eye.
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 n tn I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray?
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 also wanted to add that I don't see any pus sack on my gums or cheek but there is some white stuff that looks like it could be an abscess inbetween my tooth and gums. The dentist hasn't seen me since my cheek swelled up and won't beable to until the 10th. thanks, again.
Avatar n tn (3) You may use acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) to control the pain - keep the wound as dry as possible once drained, just wash the area around it - healing of the wound will take about one to two weeks depending on the size of the abscess (but don't worry, they write you a doctor's note for work) - get the lump checked out as soon as it starts forming to avoid cellulitis and going to the hospital (you might still have to have it drained but at least you can go to a cheap
Avatar n tn I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray? Possibly draining out before X-ray is taken? draining into roof of mouth or sinus?
Avatar n tn He game me a cream and Clavamox. i;m going to keep my eye on it. The area isn't painful when touched anymore! Thanks!
Avatar n tn We proceeded to go to the emergency room, where they told me that there was an abscess the size of an orange on the left size of my vagina that they'd have to do surgery on.
Avatar n tn I woke up this moring and found a huge purple blotch right under my eye on my skin. It does not hurt and my eye itself is not red and my vision is fine. I did not bump it. How did this get here and will it go away. It is so dark that make up won't even conceal it.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Head pain and eye pains suggest some ophthalmological problem. Slight differences in pupil sizes are found in up to 1 in 5 healthy people. The other common cause of unequal pupils with headache and eye pains is migraine headache. Glaucoma is another possibility. Other rare but serious causes are head injuries, brain tumor, abscess, meningitis, aneurysm and increased intracranial pressure. It is best to get a complete check up done.
Avatar n tn i have a abscess and swelling in my cheeck close to my left eye.. ive been on pennicilin for about 5 days now and the swelling didnt go down and im still in pain. What can i do to get out of pain and help the swelling go down..
Avatar m tn I would give it a few more weeks and as long as it gradually improves, I would keep an eye on it. If it worsens, then I would recommend going back to the endodontist.
Avatar f tn Mine developed 3 weeks ago and 2 days lator I had to have an Endodonist drain it on an emergency basis because the swelling was already moving up to my eye. I was told to get the tooth extracted because of my medical condition (Type 1 Diabetic). After I got it drained my dentist put me on 4,000mg of Amoxicillin a day becasue I had to get rid of the infection and the swelling had to continue to go down before he extracted the tooth. In my opinion I feel your husband is on proper treatment.
Avatar f tn So sorry your going through that, i had an abscess(everything from eye to cheek was very swollen) and went to the er, i got a shot of clindamycin and a prescription, its cleared, and i had the root canal retreated, and so far, no complications, good luck! i know its scary 2 think you have 2 wait 3 weeks to have it worked on.
Avatar n tn I went to the dentist Wednesday and he told me i needed a root canal on my front right tooth, overnight the tooth became abscessed and i swelled up like a balloon and had to go back to the dentist. He drained it and injected antibiotics and gave me a prescription for cleocin 150mg, i started the meds straight away, but my swelling keeps coming back while i sleep.
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist last sunday with an abscess tooth which is going to have to be a root canal started taking amoxicillin mon its now friday and still swollen no sign of abscess subsiding quite painful still planning to go to doctor or dentist tomorrow are there any symptoms i shoud be worried about and maybe go to emergency
Avatar f tn I've had a tooth abscess since the beginning of this year sometime. I went to the ER because my jaw had become so swollen that it was completely ridiculous. They gave me penicillin which I took (28 pills, 3 times a day with food). When I finished that bottle I realized that there was still a sort of blister on my gum even though it was much smaller than it used to be.
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 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.
