Abscess q tip

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess q tip

abscess

Avatar f tn After doing more research, I realized the symptoms I'm having are more consistent with a problem with the gums than with the tooth. To test this, I took a q-tip and placed it in ice water and applied it to the bottom side of the tooth and I felt absolutely nothing. What is the remedy for this type of situation other than a root canal. Please help me. I am devastated at this point at the series of events I've experienced in the last six months.
Avatar n tn Keep your hair clean, avoid dyes or harsh chemical treatments, buy a new hairbrush each time it happens too-one doctor said it was some type of Staph infection which can be picked up anywhere and everywhere.
Avatar f tn I had inflammation, throbbing, pressure, and after a day or so I noticed a white little dot on the gums/cheek area. I applied pressure with a q-tip, a foul tasting pus came out. I have been cleaning it regularly with salt water and the pain is not in tooth, but mostly in the gum/cheek area above the back molar. I went to see the dentist (I am staying in Bahrain to visit my dad who works here, and went to a dentist here).
431531 tn?1254101806 A because I was visiting my mother who had the superbug, but I tested negative . Olive or almond oil applied with q tip before bed helps prevent my nose from getting too crunchy. I'm currently trying Manuka honey.It smells nice, can't do any harm and It might just work! Metaphor? The body speaking it's mind? Any ideas? let me know if you have any thoughts. Thanks!
Avatar n tn It hurts like heck and really hard to eat. Put some canker sore meds on a q-tip and it will numb it for ya so food will be appealing again... Hope it makes it better for ya!
Avatar n tn (i guess you could call them lumps). I took a Q-tip and got one out one time and it smelled really foul, almost like vomit, and broke apart as if it was a piece of food that had been stuck there for a while.They usually make it painful to swallow, but not always.You can see it sort of stuck to the side of my tonsil in the back of my mouth.And if i get one out, soon enough another one sort of "apears" there in about a week or two. they are about the size of pea.
Avatar m tn I was on antibiotics for a few weeks prior to removal, however the infection was still there, and was forming a lot of pus that I drained every 30 min or so on a q tip. after the removal my mouth still felt numb, felt like someone injected me with concrete. It was terrible, went back to the original surgeon who pulled the tooth on 3 occasions, the last time about 2 months after.. Was told never saw anything like it, it was sore and swollen also...
Avatar n tn The opposite, I poked around with a q-tip and noticed that this puss was actually leaking out of the swollen area. It had somehow been punctured in a small area and puss was flowing out. I put pressure on the swolen areas and more would come out. This is the first time I've even felt slightly better since getting sick. so I guess a new question now, should I continue to drain it myself or should I go back to the doctor.
Avatar f tn After the bath, I took a Q-tip and very gently wiped across the whitehead of the bump. The whitehead came off on the Q-tip and the bump is now a very small, slightly raised reddish/flesh-colored area. I'll continue to monitor it. Is it possible it was just a standard pimple? Do pimples show up in that area?
Avatar f tn i believe that i caused the abscesses by drawing the fluid into the syringe without making certain that the q tip filter was adequately positioned. i should have known, when the fluid was cloudy, that something was wrong. i haven't had any more abscesses ( except for the current one which i am about to mention in a few sentences) since i became aware of this, and began positioning the filter differently.
307401 tn?1194835748 Not all dentists have an emergency numbers and seeing that the infection had spread into the jaw and the surrounding areas its a good thing she went to the ER ...... If an abscess is bad enough it can be deadly ...
Avatar m tn A couple of days after my lip ordeal my nose started hurting on the inside, and within a day or two there began to be these yellow crusts forming. When I would remove them with a q-tip or tweezers, the skin seemed to be wet and start to drip. Today I woke up and it feels almost like I have a pimple and the tip of my nostril is really sore and my nose is starting to swell and turn red.

Avatar f tn I didn't use too much of it. There were warings online that you can use to much, so I used a little q-tip and rubbed it on each of the sores. (do a skin test to make sure you're not allergic before you go spreading it all over yourself LOL.) Now three weeks later, ALL of the acne that I have had under my breast is GONE!
Avatar n tn   Finally, I did some exploration with a Q-tip.  There were open sores in deep in my nose.  One opened and drained like an abscess.  An ENT and a CT scan, and there was nothing.  I begged for antibiotics "for the infection that you don't have that doesn't show up in the CT scan" the ENT said, but he gave me seven days of Levaquin.   I said to him that I have white patches on my tonsils. He said that they were from post nasal drip. They went away with the antibiotic.
Avatar m tn This step is crucial because it is the volume of the air bubble that will replace the extra medicine that normally gets trapped in the plastic needle encasing between the end of the plunger and the tip of the needle. 3) Keeping the needle pointing downwards, press the plunger down slowly until the medicine fills the transparent plastic encasing between the glass syringe and the tip of the metal needle & all the air between the bottom of the syringe and the tip of the needle clears.
405614 tn?1329147714 She tapped on teeth, had me bite down on something, and then shot some liquid nitrogen on a Q-tip-like thing and touched each tooth to test it's cold sensitivity. That's not a good memory; it flared things up again so my upper jaw on the left side felt like it was glowing. Luckily, it didn't last too long. She had her assistant take some X-rays while she finished up with another patient. When she came back, she examined them carefully.
751951 tn?1406636463 What am I doing this week, trying to deal with another golf ball abscess, trying to work out if its the dentist i need to see or the GP, none of my teeth hurt so i cant work out why i keep getting these golf balls. Weird its not painfull, my ear hurts a bit and my throat is sore but otherwise its just numb and tingly, yes and lots and lots of swelling, which is uncomfortable and makes talking a tad difficult.
Avatar f tn He gave me Keflex AND a topical prescription antibiotic ointment, BACTROBAN. I applied it with a Q-Tip 4 times a day, and after the second day, the pain was gone. I did gently mash on it to get the old pus out, but after a few days, it stopped too. I continued using both the antibiotic until it was all gone, and used the Bactroban for a total of 14 days. I have had one other infection since, and I told the new MD what to give me.
Avatar n tn If you do start to notice any pain towards the tip of your nose, up towards the bridge, grab a Q-tip and try packing that corner of your nose with plain old over-the-counter antibiotic (like bacitracin or neosporin) if available in your country, and keep doing that 2 or 3 times a day until a few days after all symptoms and sensation goes away. (The same way you're supposed to take all your antibiotic pills, even if the symptoms go away early).
Avatar n tn I have been having a problem with my smelly belly button ever since I had my daughter 9 months ago. Now that I am reading everything listed above I do think it is mainly around the time of my period that I notice it. One day it was so bad I stuck my finger in to feal if there was an absess or something and there was white - yellow puss inside. It made me think that maybe it was an infection of some sort however I feel no pain.
Avatar m tn Just use a clean Q-tip to apply a generous amount of the Balm over the infected area, leave it uncovered and VERY lightly dab the surface *DON'T WIPE OFF* of the balm every ten minutes or so (to soak up the drainage that the Balm drew out of your skin). Also, make sure your soap (in the shower) is Antibacterial. Body washes usually are not antibacterial.
Avatar n tn a cotton ball/q-tip and alcohol? what about a pimple, ingrown hair in there? can that happen? i would imagine it hurts since its such a sensitive area. make another appointment.

I begged for antibiotics "for the infection that you don't have that doesn't show up in the CT scan" the ENT said, but he gave me seven days of Levaquin. One sore in my nose improved on the antibiotic, but the other persisted. I felt better, but couldn't function past 3pm still. I went to a DO.
