Avatar m tn If there is pain, swelling and pus, there is the risk of infection and may warrant antibiotic management. However, if there is abscess already, drainage, culture of the discharge and stronger antibiotics through IV may even be indicated.

Avatar f tn Hello, It looks like a boil or an abscess. Ringworm does not present as bumps but as itchy patches. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. . Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. Apply warm compresses and keep the area clean.
Avatar f tn Hi There can be several causes for a localized swelling in the buttocks, such as epidermal inclusion cyst, infected lipoma, abscess, boil/furuncle or fibroma. It would be difficult to diagnose without an examination. An abscess is a localized collection of pus walled off from the rest of the body. It contains pus, which consists of inflammatory cells and decayed tissues. Most abscesses causes local pain and tenderness.

Avatar n tn He has only recently developed sever problems with the skin around the stoma. He has developed a hard abscess and extreme irritation around the area. This irritated area is expanding and now he has a terrible time attaching the appliance. I have several photos of the area. They show the area very well and should help explain the problem. How do I post these photos or get them to the necessary people to give us some counseling on the problem.

Avatar n tn not a bartholin cyst. I was referred to a GYN who said it is a normal skin abscess. He was going to drain it under general anesthesia but decided to wait one more day. This morning, it felt a bit better but by the end of the day it hurt to walk again and I was now itching (probably a yeast infection from the DR's poking and prodding) I went back to the GYN who said it was no yeast infection, everything looks fine and the abscess is smaller.
Avatar m tn He also asked me if he could take pictures of my lesions to show a renowned dermo..He did find a small amount of lyme but said i didnt have lyme disease.(??) I also had a couple spots on my thalmus show up in a ct scan.The nurses ezen preformed an allergy test on me and that came back 30 out of 34 items i reacted to.Which im not allergic to anything that i know of so this was a shock but still hopefull.
Avatar n tn The swe1ling has gone down some but there is still a hard place above the drainage area. I have soaked in a hot tub, applied hot washclothes and been using a product called Prid. A couple of days ago a lot of yellow pus came out and than some very white and then blood. Does anyone know how much longer this will take to heal. I am no longer running a fever but can not handle the pain. Just my panties touching hurts like heck!I just put petro jelly on and seems to be easing up. Is that safe?
Avatar n tn April, It drained on its own because the pressure built up and basically it ran out of room. The fact that there is still a hard mass or lump is not surprise and what you will find hapeneg is that the infection will start to build up again, then drain again since it now has found an exit. Eventually scarring may take place. It is an ugly cycle and your best bet is to go and have the entire thing removed.
Avatar n tn org/wiki/Sebaceous_cyst It shows pictures of the cyst. This is what I have on my left vaginal lip or it sure looks and sounds like what everyone on here is discribing. Mine just started the other day. I squeezed it a couple times and got some puss. but it is still there!!!! ARRRGGGG!!!
Avatar m tn Sometimes, however, you can have a sinus infection that won’t show up on a CAT scan of your sinuses. In this case, you will have drainage into your throat, called post-nasal drip, and your throat often have too much mucus in it, which can cause a mild sore throat or cough on a chronic basis. 9. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? The main symptom of sinusitis is pain. Pain in your face, pain in your head.
Avatar n tn of meds/dr's, I can tell you just inflammation in throat can close up ear even from drainage/overlooked fluid/sore throat/windy day stimulates drum. Get a 'Coronal CT' & get copy for yourself on All tests. Have Tympanogram ear test (quick plug in ear for 1 min suction). That will pull un-seen fluid in ear to window. It will show 'Serous fluid' if a problem, on graph-print if there. We can all get trapped edema from lack of vent/earpop.
Avatar n tn boils are often caused by infected hair folicals. Bacteria from infection form an abscess or pocket of pus. The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery.
