Abscess on my leg

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on my leg


Avatar m tn I know it may sound really strange but I am in so much pain from recurrent abscesses. The abscesses are usually on my leg or in my arm pit and under my breast. I had one in my rectum area too. I had been to the doctors so many times and put on dicloxicillin which seemed to help at the time, yet they still kept on recurring. i don't know what to do.......
Avatar f tn If its open and have stuff coming out you can use a potato to dry it out. I had an abscess on my leg once. And my step dad told me about it. Just wash the potato cut a lil piece of it and put on there and leave it there over night. And day. And keep doing that till it drys out. Mite take a few days tho. Just make sure the area is clean around it but the abscess stay dry. And change the potato when you wake up and at night.

After a very long night in the ER, I was moved to the heart hosp because I was now in heart issues. The hand dr came and and within a few minutes had it all figured out. It was "STREP" No not STAFF- STREP.

Avatar n tn I was released after two weeks and within the next week I grew another spot actually two another on my leg and another in my bikini line area. I was in the hospital on and off for two months they drained packed and gave pain medication. Since then I have gotten more of the spots and started to drain them myself. I'm 23 female healthy but I believe I have a weak immune system.
Avatar n tn I also might add that this was the most painful experience I have ever had. Now, six months later, I have numbness on my right leg from the knee down and when I sit for prolonged periods of time and go to get up, the tops of my feet feel like someone is stabbing them with a knife and it takes me a few minutes to be able to walk. I just recently had another MRI which showed no abscess present but a mild broad based disc bulge at L3-4 and L4-5. Could this be related to the abscess?
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 f tn I have these odd pimple like bumps on my leg that have been on it for the past two years. They pop like zits (as in pus will come out with white stuff) but they never go away. They don't itch, don't hurt unless I mess with them, but are red and embarrassing. It's summer now and quite frankly it stinks to be in public with them. I've been to 2 dermatologists and my doctor about 10 times. I'm starting to give up on doctor's altogether.

Avatar n tn I'm sure 3 days is ok, since I had something similar done to something on my leg. I just didnt get that area wet but cleaned the rest of my body. Eat light foods as if you would when being sick. I hope one of the doctors will answer you better than I can.
587091 tn?1218507144 A couple weeks ago had a large reddish bump on my leg which became infected and is still healing. Now I've got a second one forming next to the other one, have never had this before, looks similiar to acne but much larger and more painful. It is quarter sized with a whitish center, has anyone seen this type of condition before, it's kind of odd that two would form next to each other. Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn About a week ago a bump developed on my inner thigh. I thought it would go away but over the next few days it grew very painful and got bigger. The pain became unbearable so I went to the ER. They lanced it and told me I had an abscess. They just put gauze over it and sent me away with antibiotics. Well it's been a week now and I'm worried how long before it heals? It is still draining I went to the doc yesterday and they gave me an antibiotics shot and did a culture.
Avatar f tn A few weeks ago,I found a pimple(or so I thought)on my leg under my knee but when I tried to pop it,it wouldn't pop.I kept trying and soon it went away but 3 days ago,it came back as a huge,quarter-sized painful boil.Then two more zit-things popped up and (as much as I told myself not to) I popped those too...the boil really hurts and I'm scared a spider may have laid eggs in my leg.I tried cleaning it with an alcohol swab and putting neo sporn with pain relief in it but it didn't work.
1078123 tn?1255914486 I can’t figure this out, is this pinched nerve or spinal abscess cause by bacteria and compresses the nerve? And, if my dog was on antibiotic for 10 days, why didn’t help him? Why his med-back is still swollen? What should I do? I can’t afford $2500 for MR test and etc. Is it a good idea to keep him on steroids the whole time? Please help! I don’t know what to do anymore.
Avatar n tn Hi, recently last friday my tooth started hurting. Saturday morning when i woke up my whole left cheek and jaw were swollen pretty big. I went to the ER and was given penicillin vk 500. It's been 4 days and its barely gone down. Is this normal? My tooth that has the abcsess is broken down to the gum, if that could be why. What would i need to get done to fix this and does anyone know about the price it would cost with no insurence? Also do dentists office's set up payment plans?

Avatar m tn I recently just noticed that I have two large lumps on the back on my right leg. It was originally three lumps, but two have combined into a huge one. They do not hurt unless I bother them but they do itch a little. Can someone help me figure out what this is?
Avatar n tn I have a small, red, pimple-sized bump on my leg, about 6 inches above my knee. It has been there a few days and it has not changed in size at all. It is not warm to the touch, but it is red around it. At first, it looked like there was a white head on it, but now it does not. There is no drainage or pus coming from it. It is very painful. I have poured peroxide on it and put a bandaid with neosporin on it with no change. This is the only bump like this on my body, and I've never had one before.
Avatar f tn Ever since then, I have tingling and numbness in my right leg only. Now my thigh is starting to swell. what can I do to relieve the tingling sensation and get rid of the swelling?

592047 tn?1243389587 Hi Dr. I took my 6yr old siamese cross to the vet on wednesday for an abscess in her paw. My partner and I had trouble finding her on Wednesday, and didn't realise she had come into the house. Next thing she comes out of our bedroom with her left front leg lame and her left front paw swollen to 3 x the normal size, and collapses on the floor in front of us. We rushed her straight to the vet who diagnosed an abscess from a cat fight our girl must have got herself into.
Avatar f tn Popping the abscessed lesion on your dogs leg relieved the pain due to the swelling of the skin and allowed the abscess to drain, which is something that your vet would have done under more sterile conditions. If you already know that the cause of the abscess is due to a traumatic wound, than oral antibiotics is probably all that is additionally required.
Avatar m tn 47 yrs old. about a month ago I noticed I had a round dry spot on the top of my thigh, it was a little red and about the size of a dime. It resembled a small burn but for the life of me could not figure out how it would have happened. Then it just never went away, if anything it is a little bigger now. It is slightly raised and nearly perfectly round and red in color. I put a little cortisone cream on it a couple times and it didnt do anything.
Avatar f tn The initial cause of the infection was never fully determined.A couple of days ago on the same leg,4 red,warm and tender lumps appeared on his shin and leg.Do you have any idea what the cause may be?He hasn`t felt well for the last 2 weeks ..He has lost his appetite and has had a very slight sore throat.He always has a sinus infection and chronic fatigue is normal for him.I am not sure if these 2 things are linked or separate issues.He is 38.
Avatar n tn Even after 2 courses of Zithromax, I still had a reddish purple lesion just above my right ankle on the outer part of my leg. The irregularly shaped lesion extended up my leg about 7 cm and was about 2.5 cm wide. It appeared to be filled with fluid. I finally asked my PCP for referral to a dermatologist. On my 1st visit to the derm. he took a brief look at the lesion and prescribed bactroban and clobetasol ointments which I used faithfully for 2 weeks.
