Avatar n tn How does the Dr drain an abscess? Is there an incision? How long does it take to drain? How long does it take to Heal? How long should it take for the infection to heal? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hello, If you are having pain in the ischial region, then it is recommended that you get a CT scan or MRI o the area done to confirm the diagnosis. It does not look like an abscess which does not cause deep seated pain but confirmation should be done first. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
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 For the past 5 nights i have been up and down all night with dental pain. I have been taking amoxicillin for 2 days 3 times a day and have been given panadiene with codeine but it wasnt helping at all so i was given fiorinal dental which also has not provided any relief. the pain that has been keeping me up comes and goes but when i have it its a severe throbbing that brings me to tears all along my lower jaw and up the side of ny face throbbing in my right ear.

They give me amoxicillin 500mg i started them yesterday teatime then last night my face started to swell up on the right side where the bad tooth is never had this before. Now i look like an hamster what i want to know is how long will it take for the tablets to work i have taken 4 so far. Also most of the pain as gone but still really soar.
Avatar m tn I've been on an antibiotic and decongestant for three days, and the pain has gotten worse. Now, it's a constant throbbing pain in the lower left side of my mouth. The left side of my neck and face is puffy, and my glands on the same side are swollen and sore. And now, when I close my mouth, my teeth don't fit together. Also, my jaw is so stiff that I can't open my mouth more than about half an inch. I looked on webmd, and the symptoms seemed to be that of a dental abscess. Do you agree?
Avatar f tn I was told to get bicarbonate soda mix into a paste spread it on covering the abscess an it will draw it. did tht it's still thr. so much pain this is my 2nd one I've had since being pregnant but I've had 2 at one time. hurts like he'll get shooting pains threw it too jesus I could scream with it ladies kills too touch it.
Avatar f tn Ive been having pain on and off for several weeks in my lower left jaw area. Its originating in a crown that Ive had for more than 10 years and now its causing me earache and tender/swollen glands under my left jaw. Im in agony and Im popping pills like mad! This only numbs the pain slightly and wears off quite quickly. Ive also got a swollen left side of my face and a lump on my gum.
Avatar f tn I don't have a lot of pain but the swelling is looking bad, the tooth shattered about six months ago and I used salt on it to kill the pain right now I am taking advil alieve and kefltex I slept with a tea bag with garlic and mint oils inside my jaw Im trying everything I can find and I don't know how to get the swelling to go down any advice?
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 m tn I had a cracked tooth,I waited and put off something being done about it,and it became abscess,a pocket formed underneath it and also my jaw swelled up an I believe became infected, I went to the doctor, they numbed and drained the pocket,and gave me 2 antibiotics and a pain med, I'm no longer in pain (the cracked tooth is a little loose) but its been going on 3 days of antis and no change has occurred, is that normal? should I go back to the doctor?
Avatar m tn I have fairly white healthy teeth, but I have an abscess behind my tooth, how can I get rid of it, or sooth the pain.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor last Wednesday, and the doctor told me it was an abscess and gave me antibiotics. The bump had popped exposing pus and a little blood on Friday. The pain went away but the size never went down. The next day it was a little bit smaller. On Sunday I realized the bump was getting bigger again, but this time there was no pain. Today it popped again this time it was just straight pus and at the end it was blood. They were not mixed together.
Avatar m tn I went to the dentist today and they pulled the root they said that it was most likely the cause of the abscess and after an hour and a half in the chair they finally pulled the roots. 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.
Avatar f tn I had an abscess in my right breast 10 years ago and it left a little lump after it healed. Two weeks ago I developed an abscess in the same spot. My GP recommended a week of antibiotics (Augmentin) and it started to drain on its own two days back. I feel a thickened area which hasn't gone down. Should I be worried? The abscess continues to drain slowly and I have covered it with sterilized gauze. Please help.
1881960 tn?1320703566 My doctor gave me penicillin and something for pain but its day 3 and nothing has changed. I can feel the abscess in my mouth for the first time today. It's not getting smaller, only larger! I am 29 and on coumadin and lovenox so no dentist will see me. I've called dozens of dentists to no avail. I am trying not to become frustrated but each passing day I'm stuck in bed isn't helping. Any suggestions ?
6388161 tn?1380850057 Yesterday i went back to the emergency room and the abscess was lanced but nothing came again but blood. It is so hard and large the doctor said it was urated i dont know the exact word but it needs to be surgically removed. So has anyone had abscess in the below the vagina are surgically removed? If so did you have to stay overnight in the hospital? Was their a lot of pain afterward?
Avatar f tn I normally get these all under my right armpit, but my most recent ones are two under the arm and on the lower half of my back which in turn is stopping me from walking, laying down, sitting down or standing for too long The pain is excruciating and no doctor seems to know what's wrong with me I see a specialist on Feb 4th I'm sorry I can't give any answers, but I just wanted to let you know your sister isn't alone x

Avatar m tn Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. Recurrent boils are found in diabetes, HIV infection, or other immune system disorders.So pls get your blood sugar evaluated.They don’t occur in any dermatological disorder. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted in case you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Is this normal for mastitis, or has it progressed into an abscess? I really just want to go have it drained just to relieve the pressure and pain but I'm afraid my midwife will want to wait until I'm done with the antibiotics.

Avatar m tn Would a gum abscess cause shooting pain from gum area across cheek to eye, and down neck?
Avatar n tn I've been having excruciating pain in my right jaw, teeth and gums that radiates to the middle of my chin. I started taking CIPRO because thats all I have on hand. I tried rinsing with warm salt water but the pain became more severe on contact. Can applying a heating pad to my cheek cause more damage? I've heard controversy about the type of treatment.
Avatar n tn Why do I still have pain in my breast abscess wound after my breast abscess incision heals?
Avatar m tn It's about 1 - 2 cm in diameter, pink and a little soft (can feel some fluid inside) but not painful and not getting larger or smaller and I'm having what seems like muscular shooting pain up my neck and down my spine on that same side. I'm wondering if this small abscess or boil could be causing the pain or possibly spreading deeper and what should I do about it since it's not very big but in pretty sensitive area (right next to my lower neck spine.
