Abscess on piercing

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on piercing


Avatar m tn I've read that it could be from an infection of some sort. An ear piercing that I have got infected from using non gold about a week ago. I don't have health insurance yet, so I don't want to waste a bucnh of money if it is something I can do at home. I do have cephalexin 500mg but haven't taken any yet. Can someone please help me out? I'm a little scared to what it is.
Avatar n tn This is my first belly button piercing and I am a little concern. I do not know if it is effective. I had it done about two months ago, i am having a slimy drainage and crust around the ball on the loop of the ring. It dose not bother me i.e. itch or irritates unless its close to the time for me to clean it. I clean it twice a day with dove soap and use AD ointment afterwords.
Avatar f tn many piercings and I've found that sometimes a heavy bar can move the piercing if you leave it in for long enough (I have every space on my ears pierced and it happened to my top right piercing) Def go back to the people who did for you or see your doctor. Otherwise, yeah...try switching to the old one and keeping it clean with warm saltwater because the disenfectants on the markets are complete and utter ****.
Avatar m tn Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on what this could be. An infected cyst or an abscess is the most likely possibility. I would suggest having this evaluated by an ENT specialist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Reconstructive/ cosmetic surgery may be required to avoid scar formation as the lesion heals up. You may like to discuss the options with your doctor. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn Since yesterday I've had a large swollen bump on the labia majora..it's very painful, it hurts to walk or sit. I've been putting warm cloth on it and it seemed to help with the swelling but it's still really painful. I don't really want to go to the doctor because I just don't have the money right now, and I feel like it would be a waste if it's something that I can take care of on my own. Anyone else ever experienced this before? What can I do to ease the pain?
Avatar m tn I haven't seen any blood in her mouth but, but i didn't ask her to show me her mouth. She only show me her piercing on tongue. Now i have aches in my throat since 3 days and feel as i have a little fever (but didn't check), without any other pain, only a little in the neck (maybe cervical). A couple of days before throatache i had a very little abscess in my mouth. Since the same days i can feel a itch in my chest, about 15 cm above pit of stomach, but without any rash. Am i at risk?
Avatar n tn I had a cyst on my upper lip i went to a doctor he referred me to a plastic sergin (can't spell sorry) he told me i can get it cut out or leave it he said i got it from a peircing i had in the same spot and something got inside the skin it has noe got alot smaller what do i do can it harm me and why do you think i got it????
Avatar n tn After several trips to the dentist and multiple x-rays, the dentist confirmed that I do not have any type of abscess. And between my family physician and the dentist they feel that I could have a TMJ disorder. Occasionally blood will drain from between the gum and my upper / back molar. Neither my doctor nor dentist could offer a reason for this. Yesterday after spending 16 hours in pain I went tot he ER. After obtaining my history they suggested a CT scan of my jaw and sinus cavity.
148691 tn?1260198503 it was watery and built up between her ear and the pin behind the earring, but tonight I saw an abscess! =( I don't think it hurts or anything, she doesn't pull on it or grab it... only when i was trying to look at it... so I put that saline solution (antiseptic) that they gave me when they did the piercing to cleanse it. Should I call the doctor???? should I put some antibiotic ointment on it?? i mean, i know you can't use just anything on a baby....
Avatar m tn I had had my nipples pierced for almost five years, re-piercing them three times each during that frame of time. About 3 years ago, I had popped a bump on my areola around the top right, it scabbed over and I popped it again but a bunch of pus-like fluid (didn't smell) that was mixed with a little blood seeped out for over an hour. I left it to heal and the two holes it came out of never healed, they are still there.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Im a 19 y/o girl, I had a nipple piercing in my right breast about 8 months ago, and took it out due to infection. I went to the doctors and was put on medication to treat it, Not long after the infection went away... I discovered a lump in my breast. doctors thought it was part of the infection, but sadly it didnt go away after another set of antibiotics. I have now been for two ultrasounds and still no results or conclusion as to what it is.
Avatar f tn Now I have matits. Because of that I have a large absese in my right breast. My doctor has me on antibiotics. Im almost done with the antibiotics but it seems its only gotten worse not better. Has anyone had this happen. If so what else did your doctor do if the antibiotics didnt work?
1154937 tn?1262241976 Sure enough a few days later went by and I developed an abscess in my throat due to a staph or strep throat infection. I do not know which one because although the doctors ran tests they never told me which one it was. I kept asking and they just never specified one would use the term staph the other strep. After that I had pain for a while and my tonsils took weeks if not months to go down. They still look bigger than normal. As for the bump under my chin it eventually went away.
1926571 tn?1323210289 I've been on gabapentin, carbamazepine, amitriptyline, and i was just on a short stint of 1000mg Keppra post op. I am really sensitive to the CNS side effects of all the medications, so I haven't been taking any. The amitriptyline was particularly bad! it made my arms feel like pins and needles for two days straight!
Avatar m tn About 7 weeks ago I started to wear contacts again, but I was having discomfort in the right eye, kind of like an allergy. I only wore contacts from 5-9 hours a day. I have off and on dry eyes since the VKC. I have yellow bumps on my eyelids sometimes, which I was told are clogged glands and common with dry eyes. I have stopped wearing contacts because I have extreme discomfort (pain!) in my right eye. It seems to be the back of my eye, but its hard to isolate.
Avatar m tn Pushing on the area causes a discharge to come out of both piercing sites. It started out yellow/green, thinner than the discharge I was used to when the rings were in, but opaque. This evening the discharge was mostly blood, albeit thin, watered down blood. I try not to squeeze or put pressure on the area, as I am certain that if there is an infection, I am only making it worse, but I am monitoring the area that feels hard to see if it is growing and this makes the discharge leak out.
4628530 tn?1369112686 I was given a mammogram and a biopsy which came back negative. The inflammation finally led to the first abscess opening by itself which made me faint in the shower because the pus was unbelievable. It was then lanced and packed for 3 days. I went back and had a penrose drain put in instead because I couldn't handle the packing. It leaked pus for about a month and a half. After several ultrasounds, the doctor (breast specialist/surgeon), diagnosed it as GM.
Avatar n tn Not long after the last admission in July, an Infectious Diseases doctor started me on a preventive program using three different antibiotics - the 1st (Amoxicillin) for 30 days, the 2nd for 30 days, the 3rd for 30 days, then repeat the cycle. That will hopefully prevent the antibiotics from becoming ineffective while keeping the Sepsis from gaining a foothold.
637356 tn?1301928422 I have two teeth that are hurting me pretty bad they have half my face hurting. I have taken, tylenol, BC powder, Ibrprofen, and put gobs of orajel on the two teeth and my gums to stop the pain and yet I am almost in tears with pain. I can taste blood so I think they are bleeding now or atleast one of them is. I am also feeling as if I am running fever now and I believe it is because of the tooth or teeth that are bothering me as well as feeling naseaus.
Avatar n tn So all this started when I was 14 years old. The doctors had me on Ativan at 14, then klonopin and serax, finally I am on xanax. The thought of not having my xanax scares the hell out of me. When I was in my last rehab, they tried to get me off the benzo's. I had an M.I. I have asthma also. The doctor at rehab was trying to follow the nursing board guidelines, for I am a nurse with a substance abuse problem. I am on methadone. I do not abuse my xanax or methadone.
Avatar n tn Have been taking double-strength Bactrim along with Valtrex in case it could be the start of shingles. It has been 4 days on meds with no improvement, but no rash either. Extremely painful. Wake up every 2 hours and need Vicodin. Seems to radiate into cheek. Scalp itches now. Now also have one swollen, painful lymph node under left jaw. Shouldn't the Bactrim be working by now? Is there a more effective antibiotic that I should be using?
1225178 tn?1318984204 Gastritis and 6 doctors to figure it out. Only one of them picked up on ALT @ 59 and ran Hep panel. That was 1.5 years ago. I am now on tx and UND for 5.5 months and still suffer from gastritis.
Avatar n tn OMG....THANK GOD i found this site...I had my tubes tied 6 years ago through my belly button. I've been fine until about a month ago when I smelled this horrible odor on all of my shirts and the rim of my pants where it would meet my navel..I too thought maybe I didn't wash/dry it thoroughly! I take 2 showers a day and this was the first time me experiencing this ..then I happened to stick some tissue in there and the gunk that was on it was awful..
Avatar n tn I have also had a fever of about 101 that never seems to exceed that, but comes and goes as well. My PCP asked about the eyebrow piercing on the right side of my face and I informed her it was made of titanium. She then concluded that it's probably not the issue (being that I hadn't had any issues with infection at the site of the piercing). She's the only person that brought it up, and now it's got me thinking.
Avatar n tn I finally went to my OB in the beginning of November who did some tests on me and said that I was experiencing menopause. I'm 25 and my son is only 1 1/2. No freakin way! He put me on Hormones (which by the way can cause every cancer in the book) and said that I will feel better within a day, but did not want to take Mirena out. I said ok and went on my way. I talked to many people for advice who told me to get it taken out right away and go off of the hormones.
Avatar n tn I know it sounds bizarre, but if you are getting ready to go to bed, just massage a little on the area, not UP INSIDE but just on the area-mine is usually on inner lips-it soothes it a bit. Who knows it helped me.
Avatar n tn It scares me, especially since my husband had brain surgery less than 2 years ago- (symptoms completely different of course) I am 35 years old, the only time I remember hitting my head really hard is when I was in elementary school and I fell and hit my head on a tile floor. I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years.
Avatar n tn it sounds like when you sleep your jaw is resting on the right side more, so that is why you have more presure on that side. all you'll need is a fitted night splint, and you should feel better right away. ear pain is usually associated with tmj. good luck.
Avatar n tn I went back to bed and they still were sore when I woke up. I am not large (34 a/b) and they did feel less sore as the day went on but were sore again when I woke up the next day. They don't hurt as much now but kinda feel tender right along the underwire bra. It's not just one boob but both? Any ideas? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn She also talked elmerion but its not working yet this has been going on for 10 months now I'm starting to think maybe there is something else going on Im going to rule out bladder cancer and have them do a abdominal laporoskyto also rule out endemetreosis . She also has been treated and diagnosed with severe migraines and is on topomax. She was nausa and vomiting for 6 months straight anywhere from 4-6 times a day straight. Shes been through so much at such a young age any info would help .
