Avatar m tn Things worsened and I went to a urgent care. I tested negative for Strep and Mono. I ended up having a peritonsillar abscess. This had to be drained and my fever immediately dropped after. The ENT tested the puss and it came back negative. Negative for what? I have no idea, I never asked. Since then I have been mainly had intermittent leg soreness and fatigue, but it is real random when it happens. What I am more concerned about is my oral sores.

533880 tn?1237612452 The high fever is worrisome and suggests infection, probably not of the sinuses but of the ears, the oral cavity or the soft tissues of the neck, called a peritonsillar abscess. Were it not for the fever, I would consider atypical migraine, but not with fever.
Avatar m tn I feel way much better. No pain, no fevers, etc. The abscess is really small, like dots. I asked if it was contagious when I was there and the person I asked told me "as long as you're getting better, it shouldn't be contagious". I was also wondering can I kiss anybody now that I've been on antibiotics for 10 days? I would like to hear from other people. Thank you in advance.

Avatar f tn So here's the situation... Had a one night stand Saturday night - I'm a 24 female who had protected vaginal sex with a male, then I gave him oral sex unprotected and also did anal sex unprotected (first time) which was the stupidest mistake of my life. I have only had 4 partners and prior to this guy I hadn't had sex in over 9 months.
Avatar m tn Tonsillectomy is advised if there is recurrent streptococcal tonsillitis, recurrent peritonsillar abscess and chronic tonsillitis. But please check to see if your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens.
Avatar m tn Any Ideas on what it might be? Sinus infection? post nasal drip? (I have allergies), peritonsillar infection or something else?
Avatar n tn My ENT said that it has a more painful recovery but is the BEST procedure to get the full tonsil out and to prevent post-op bleeding. I had a peritonsillar abscess a couple of weeks ago and have been told that once you get one they keep on coming back...with avengence. I also suffer from chronic tonsillitis.

Avatar f tn Towards the end of the fourth week since initial onset I took a good look at my throat and found that the left tonsil was moderately swollen and that the peritonsillar mucosa on both sides had turned completely white. I also noticed bilateral swollen cervical lymph nodes. I visited a GP at this point, who didn't seem concerned. He nevertheless did a FBC that came back normal and an EBV test that came negative.
Avatar n tn Although the antibiotics may kill the bacteria that is causing the abscess, if the core of the abscess does not come to the surface or is not removed by the doctor or the nurse, the abscess will continue to fester. Apply a hot compress to draw the abscess to the surface. If there is no broken skin on the abscess, you can purchase magnesium sulphate from the pharmacy and apply this to the abscess. This is a drawing ointment and can only be used on unbroken skin.
Avatar m tn While I was on interferon therapy and my resistance was low, I developed an abscess on my buttock that was drained and healed. For several months now I have had pain that feels deeper in the tissue, possibly in the ischeum. It has never come to a point and there is no drainage that I can detect. I cannot see any external signs of swelling or redness. Have not been feverish recently. Could this be an ischiorectal abscess or possibly pudental nerve pain?
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.
