Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on 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 (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 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 About three or four months ago, I developed (what I believe to be) a boil on my nose, on one side, over the nostril. It was painful, but with warm compresses it finally surfaced and drained after 2-3 days. The swelling went down - about 90-95% - but it appears it never totally went away - and I have this swollen area there now, where the boil had been - about 1cm wide and 2cm in length, and perhaps 1mm high; running parallel to the bridge of my nose.
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 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 woke up on monday morning in extreme pain and with a completely swollen top lip, stretched nose and puffy cheek. Having no idea what was wrong I went to the doctors and was put on amoxcillin (they weren't sure what was wrong as the abscess isn't visible, it is really high up under my lip and quite large).
Avatar n tn It would come on sudden, and leave sudden. My mouth would feel as though it was on fire all around on that side and on that side of my tongue. We left the high altitude, highest of 10,000 ft. When we got below 4000 i felt some relief. Stopped and got an ice cream and even though i had gotten use to not letting anything cold or hot float over to those teeth, some melted ice cream did drift to that tooth area. Again, my face and mouth was on fire and stayed that way longer.
Avatar n tn I have a sore on the inside of my nose. Its been there for 3 weeks. A scab appeared and if I blow it blood comes out. That scab falls off and then it hardens up again. Not sure what it is. What treatments is there for something like that.
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 She told me that by doing so she would have to stitch me back up which would leave a scar on my nose. I'm just wanting to know if someone could give me a diagnosis of what this could be and if so, are there any other methods of treatment (i.
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 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 m tn This sounds very similar to what I am going through - again. I am taking an antibiotic and Tylenol with codeine. I am also taking ibuprofen because there is so much pain. And ibuprofen reduces inflammation. Of course, you should check with your doc first. I have also found, like you, that in the morning I have more swelling. It seems to help if I am propped up with my head above the rest of my body.
335728 tn?1331418012 My little Papillon/cross seems to have developed a swelling on her nose! From the top of her nose toward her eyes the nose is swollen about 1/2 inch. She is feeling a little out of sorts as well. Not behaving her normal energetic barking self at all. I don't know if perhaps she got bitten by something (we are in Northern Alberta so there are not any stinging insects here yet) but I am concerned about her. Any information would be helpful!
Avatar n tn my questions are how exactly does the infection from the abscess get into your cheek and even though i am now on day 6 of my medication there is still some swelling in my cheek that feels hard to the touch. all the pain from the infection as been gone for some days now and i did notice a little more improvement in the cheek today, but how long should it take for the swelling to completely go away?
1356258 tn?1277667850 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. It is completely covered by his white fur, but sticks out 2-4 mm, goes from the middle to near the top of his nose and is about half as wide as his nose (maybe 3-5 mm wide by 1-1.5 cm high).
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 My dog minnie went to the vet a few days ago for diarreha, and I also mentioned to them that she had (what appeared to be) a scar on the top of her nose. She tends to rough house a lot with our other dog and dig in the dirt sometimes, so it wasn't surprising. The "scar" was just kind of like a rough lump on her nose. It has since came off and there is hair missing. It just doesn't look like a cut or anything like that to me anymore...I'm going to try to attach pictures.
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 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.
Avatar f tn I had an vallecular abscess on my lingual tonsil drained 1/17 in an emergency procedure. they told me it was in a rare location and that my vocal chords were hemorraged in surgery, so that i would be sore a while. there were loculations in abscess. "the tonsils did show exudate tonsilitis biltaterally but no evidence of obvious abscess.
Avatar f tn I have swelling in my neck to ear and on the bottom of my chin. Cant clear my throat and theres a whitish, clear gummy mucus like stuff in my throat as well. And a bad taste . I also have white bumps starting midways of my tongue as far as I can see down to my throat.
Avatar f tn An abscess can hurt like that and come on very fast. It's not going away, and it's only going to get worse. I really hope he gets to either a doctor or a dentist very soon.
