abscess

Avatar m tn I had a pimple that was on my waist which after a few days blew up into this big red swollen pimple like thing. I've had it for maybe 5-6 days now and it's about the size of a quarter. I don't think it's anything like MRSA or anything because my dad said he's had things like this and he also had MRSA but he told me this is nothing like MRSA, seeing as it would've blown up to a bigger size in only a couple of days. He said it might just be an ingrown hair but I'm still worried about it.
Avatar f tn I have boils or abscess on my buttocks. I can not tell between the two. They do not produce pain or any discomfort. I also get them under my breast, inner thigh, and also my waist. Could this mean I have contracted HIV?? I had an HIV test done in 2008 when I was pregnant with my son. It came back negative. These abscess or boils have been coming and going for years now. WHAT COULD THIS BE??? I had unprotected sex back in 2007. But I took the HIV test in 2008 well over three months.
Avatar n tn - 85% - 95% of the spots on my thighs/waist/stomach have disappeared. There are still a couple. - My penis, which was very dry and somewhat inflamed has become so much better. There sill are 3 dark-red spots on the head and one on the top of shaft. My situation improved rapidly at first after starting medication but is now at a somewhat steady line.
Avatar n tn and have seen many different locations for an abscess on the body and i have to say that the groin area is the most painful and most re-occuring location. I have assisted both Dr.s and P.A.s in lancing(making a small cut into the head of the abscess to release the pus) these painful abscesses. Here's the thing....if you've gotten one before----you're more prone to getting them again....
Avatar f tn I had skin-to-skin genital contact and had oral sex performed on me (but no vaginal intercourse) with a guy exactly 4 weeks ago (on Aug. 13th). 9 days later (Aug. 22nd), I first started feeling extremely itchy on my vaginal lips and around the entrance to my anus. This itchiness increased to the point that it was unbearable. During that time, I tried taking yeast infection meds, but that didn't work. 7 days after that (Aug. 29th), I noticed 2 large bumps under the skin near my anus.
Avatar n tn I have a pain on the left side at the waist. It does not hurt sitting or lying down, this tremendous pain is there upon standing and walking. It is a pain that takes away your breath and makes you not want to stand or walk. It is not at the hip joint but at the top of the coxal and it is a pain that you cannot touch.
Avatar f tn They are only on the trunk of my body but not on my back. I have an occasional one on my forearm, and once one on my cheek. Could cranberry juice be causing these? It seems that when I get them I am drinking cranberry juice or a cranberry mix juice. Or is it just coincidence? I have been putting Bacitracin ointment on the bumps. How contagious is this? Could this turn into MRSA? They seem to be mostly in areas where I am warmest.
Avatar m tn I get these painful red bumps on the inside of my thighs, my waist, and my buttocks. They are painful for a few days, but then the swelling subsides and they begin to decrease in size. Sometimes they will come to a "whitehead" simillar to a carbuncle or boil. I can handle the discomfort, but what I'm wondering about is the scars they leave. They are a brownish tone, and very unattractive, and embarrasing for me.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with anxiety by my doctor and tend to over think every little ache or pain in my body and associate it with an STD. On occasion I get small boils on my waist, and had one abscess which was MRSA staph and was treated by my doc. Since this exposure, I have not been tested, nor have I engaged in ANY sexual acts since. I have been to the doctor, gotten routine blood work, and even had surgery without incident.
Avatar n tn A prostatic massage, where fluid can be sent for culture and analysis, as well as a transrectal ultrasound can be done to exclude infection or an abscess. Otherwise, imaging of the pelvis can be done to exclude a hernia or abscess. These options can be discussed with your personal physician or in conjunction with a urologist. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar f tn I have had abscess or boils on my buttocks for years. I can not tell between the two. They also come under my breast, on my waist, the inner thigh and the back of the thigh. They do not produce pain or cause any discomfort. They come and go, but when they return, they come in a new spot each time. I had a HIV test in 2008 when I was pregnant with my son. I had unprotected sex in 2007 about two times. After the last risky sex I got a test done. It was well after three months when I got the test.
Avatar m tn I woke up one day and my armpit itched and I felt a small swollen area about the size of a pea, I didn't think much of it. I just put some Triamcinolone cream on it and thought it would go away. By the next day I noticed that it was bigger, not painful, but definitely bigger...about the size of a marble. I decided to go to the doctor on day 3. The P.A (physicians assistant) came in, asked if it hurt, I said no...its just a little itchy and more annoying than anything.
Avatar n tn I have the zit like pempils all under, just below my armpits, on the sides of my breast, along my stomach just above my waist line, on the insides of my thighs, on my butt, and now some are running down the backs of my legs. They are red, sore, and have a thick, very thick like white pus in them. I have battled this for so long. I prayer every night for them to go away. I know it has been at least 10 years battling this from Doctor to Doctor. Now one ever says anything except hair follicles.
Avatar n tn I have had discomfort to pressure for at least that long. When I bend over at the waist it becomes difficult to breathe. I have put on weight over the last few years and this has added to my waist line. My health has been compromised by all the above as well as a removal of a salivary gland 3 years ago. I am feeling much better at this time, finally. I am between This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/284106'>Phrenic Nerve suddenly is paralyzed no trauma</a>.
Avatar m tn It has been 5 months since this happened. In my abdomen the pain is mostly under my waist line (bellybutton) mostly between my umbilicus and bladder around but I also feel it out to the left and right. some times I feel a weird tingly sensation under the tips of my ribs and the xiphoid process of the sternum. The pain has improved a little overall in the past few months. Some times I feel good and think I’m getting better but the pain comes back a day later.
Avatar m tn I was thinking it was herpes however I decided to squeeze it on about day 5 and even though there was no whitehead on the surface a good amount of puss came out then it bleed along with some clear fluid. Since I squeezed this it has started to heal. The healing never had a dark scab on it but there are layers of skin shedding off. There was no yellow or brown crusting. My understanding is that herpes would not have puss but clear fluid only.
1340994 tn?1374197577 My symptoms developed into abdominal discomfort around my waist on the left side, a pressure feeling, especially at the umbilicus, and also in the back on that side. Does this sound like anything anybody has had? Besides Celiac, I have such a severe twist in my colon at the splenic flexure that they can't get the scope past it. Therefore they have only checked my sigmoid colon, and it was fine with no diverticulosis.
Avatar n tn Some possibilities include demyelinating disease (multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, etc) tumors (gliomas, epondmyomas, lymphoma) and infectious processess (tuberculosis, abscess, etc). An MRI with contrast can help differentiate between some of these(each has their own pattern of enhancement/non-enhancement). Another required step is a lumbar puncture to look for inflammation (as in multiple sclerosis, or infection) and abnormal cells (sometimes found with tumors).
Avatar f tn The first outbreak was blisters on my labia majora on one side, and swollen spots itchy spots near by on my buttocks on the other side, with pain my my leg bones. I was never told what type I had. I was very uneducated and clueless at that time, and I think I might have spread it all over my body by scratching, including my eyes. But I did not have any other outbreak until 2009, which was swollen itchy spots on my buttocks. At that time, I was given Famvir. Then no more outbreaks.
Avatar f tn I looked in my mouth last night and it looks like I have a wart or abscess on my gum on the bottom right behind my tooth. My gums on my cheeks seems as if they are swollen on each side inside my mouth and there is a white film like substance on them. I have read how hard it is to detect Oral Cancer. I contacted the Ear nose and throat clinic and they said they do not test for Oral Cancer. I just don’t know what to do next as far as getting tested for Oral HPV Im just at a loss.
Avatar f tn I have been to my general practioner, breast surgical oncologist, mammogram and ultra sound doctor and infectious disease doctor to try to find out what is causing this rash on my breast. I have been on antibiotics for a month and I am so happy to find this site. I have been tested for inflammatory breast cancer with a biopsy due to this rash and I am done and ready to fight with Victoria Secret about this!

Avatar m tn Amebiasis (This started since 1 month after taking an antibiotic Lynx 500 for a skin abscess on waist. Before that he had constipation) 7. Suffering from acute spondylosis on waist and knee. Visited orthopedic doctors and he suggested Knee replacement. My Father’s Body structure: 1. He is quite heavy and adequate fat in the lower portion of the body 2. His current Body Weight is around 93 kg. 3. Due to the obesity he cannot walk properly. It’s pretty slow and lost balance while moving.
Avatar m tn Wash off your hands with soap. The blood vessels on one side of the nose swell up with blood, on purpose, to close off that side of the nose to air. This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose.
Avatar f tn A few weeks ago, he developed an abscess on his belly (there was a spot and he picked it). His GP (doctor) didn't do a swab so they didn't really treat him with the correct antibiotics. He is also a Type II diabetic, food controlled. The abscess was starting to heal up, but earlier this week he started feeling ill. Both myself and my son have had heavy colds recently and he thought he was coming down with the cold too.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any advice on how to alleviate the pain, suggestions for diet, or share their experiences and what kind of medications they took and for how long you had to keep taking it? How long will it take for him to get better? Are there ways to improve his health? It saddens me to see him lose so much weight from the surgeries.
Avatar m tn (I had gone to the dentist on the 8th week for a root canal treatment and was on antibiotics Dalacin C 300 for 8 days) 22 weeks: hair loss, mainly from my eyebrows and hair on my torso and stomach. Lasting till now (week 26) As at today, I still have a white tongue, a loss of appetite and hair loss issues. I have made STDs check and 7 HIV 1&2 tests all negative. My blood picture is normal. I have just noticed that my WBC and lymphocytes fluctuate within the normal range.
Avatar f tn I clearly remember getting a sore like area (like an abscess actually) on my abdomen, right around the areas where I eventually ended up with the scars. It's actually worse on my lower left side than my right. And it only happened in like my first 1-3 TX's time frame because I never got any new scarred areas in my later treatments and never got any on my legs or thighs or anywhere else except the injection areas where the sores developed.
