Avatar m tn shtml Some stubborn cases of folliculitis have been responsive to laser-assisted hair removal. This process uses a laser to destroy the follicle. This reduces the scarring that results from folliculitis. Let us know if you need any other information and consult a skin specialist if the lesion is persistent. Regards.
Avatar f tn I believe Crown failures are common after 5 -15 years, simply because bacteria will get inside of the crown and have a field day with your tooth, all the while the bacteria are protected from removal, hidden by the crown. Many Dentists does not communicate this reality when they sell you on getting the crown. An Endodontics can do the root canal without removing the crown, they just drill through the crown, do the root canal and seal entry of the crown. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn He is treating me for a tooth abscess, and started me on Antibiotics and pain meds. I'm just wondering - the puss pockets seems to be about the same size, and is mostly uncomfortable. How long until I can expect it to start "healing"? I know the infection will not totally subside until I have the tooth removed, but I'm just wondering how long before the swelling might subside. Also, what would happen if the abscess were to burst?
Avatar m tn Hi, I had crown done following the root canal treatment on 14th tooth 3 years ago due to a regular recurring abscess. After the root canal treatment and crown, i used to get abscess at exactly the same location every now and then but that time with no pain. A month ago the abscess recurred again after a long while, so i went to a dentist (a different this time since i have moved places). He suggested that the previous root canal was not done properly and that the crown had to be removed.
Avatar n tn Hello, It is strange that even after surgical removal the abscess has came back. It means that it can be a cyst and the entire contents of the cyst have not been taken out. Consult your dermatologist and discuss this with him. Recurrent boils/abscess are found in diabetes, HIV infection, or other immune system disorders. So please get your blood sugar evaluated Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn I also wanted to add that I don't see any pus sack on my gums or cheek but there is some white stuff that looks like it could be an abscess inbetween my tooth and gums. The dentist hasn't seen me since my cheek swelled up and won't beable to until the 10th. thanks, again.
Avatar n tn i had an abscess on a tooth that had already had root canal treatment went to the dentist he said i had the abscess after taking an x ray and said the tooth needed to be removed. without asking whether there was anyone to go home wiith me or if the rest of my day was free, he, under just normal injected into the mouth painkiller proceeded to pull the tooth i felt most of it and screamed i had previously asked can i have gas and air or something he said id be "fine" .
Avatar n tn I have an abscess under my breast. It has grown in the same spot about 3 or 4 times before. I went to the doctor and she referred me to get an ultrasound to see how far down it went. They determined that it did not go into my breast tissue. The last time i got it the doctor put me on antibiotics which i felt did nothing since it always heals by itself. Anyway, it is growing back again more painful and bigger then before and i just don't know what to do about it anymore.
Avatar f tn How long is a typical recovery for this type of removal? Also my doctor says that both fallopian tubes maybe destoyed and have to be removed.
Avatar f tn On Sunday, I sought medical treatment at a local clinic as my doctors office was closed. They lanced, drained, and packed the abscess. The PA did things much differently than I've ever had done before. Firstly, he used no lidocaine or numbing medication, as he said it doesn't help. Let me tell you-this was much more excruciating than the other lances I've had done. Also, he didn't squeeze the pus out, he just let it drain on its own.
Avatar n tn Can one have the top and bottom of the kidney removed and leave the rest in tact? 3. What are the chances of an abscess versus cancer for a dense lesion?
Avatar n tn Has anyone experiecned this issue. It is sometimes called a subareola abscess. This is a chronic condition- I have had 3 surgeries to removed the abscess because of the pain associated with it. It is back again and my last surgery was in November. I quit smoking because that is what my one doctor to me the was the ONLY cause and that is I quit smoking it will stop them from returning 100% of the time.
Avatar m tn HI, Antibiotics will help reduce the swelling and this can take a few days. However regarding removal of your teeth - Removal of 12 teeth is a big decision and you should take a second opinion regarding the same. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I currently have been dealng with a recurrent subareolar breast abscess. I was first treated with ten days of keflex two times a day, in which it got better but then came back. Next I went to a breast surgeon and she performed incision and drainage and another ten days of keflex. The abscess still would not heal so I had surgery a few days ago in which the surgeon removed the abscess and I thnk some of the infected ducts.
Avatar n tn After gall bladder surgery if you are having pain then liver studies should be done. The pain could be due to an abscess. A CT scan should be done. It can also be due to acidity and duodenal ulcer. Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Walking around also helps clear gas. It could also be muscle pull that can be treated by applying local analgesic creams.
Avatar f tn It sounds like it'll eventually abscess and cause some significant pain and swelling. It would be good to remove it before it becomes a problem. It helps when the infection is more mild in terms of complication with surgery and recovery time. Also, you get to choose when to remove them rather than wait for pain and then get them removed. It may be at a bad time such as a vacation.
Avatar n tn Pls don’t poke it with a needle as it may invite infections and an abscess may form. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
Avatar n tn Hello ive been having boils for over 10 years. They first started when i was 13 years old, in the armpit of both my arms. They have now spread to my groin and buttocks.

Just every time i seem to get rid of them i will get a hot sweat and they will return to the point where i might get 4 or 5 on my groins of each leg.
Avatar n tn I have sigmoid colon removal surgery scheduled soon. Am I making the right choice? Gastroenterologist seemed sure... Surgeon is leaving it up to me.I still have small amount of daily pain and bowel movements are often long snake shaped.
Avatar f tn ), last week I have developed what I thought was an abscess but a biopsy today suggests its an infected haematoma. 3 days to wait for the results. The penicillin i have had over the last 4 days doesnt seem to have done much. Any ideas ? Is this something i should be worried about ?
Avatar f tn everything I find said IV antibiotics, drain the abscess and possible tonsil removal.
Avatar n tn wow I have never heard of that until now, they had teeth and hair? Back in May I had an "abscess removed" When I got the reports it said eclipse bearing hair and skin? I never really understood it is that what that is?

Avatar n tn A month after being released, she was hospitalized again with a kidney abscess. Could these infections be related to the actual stent removal procedure?
Avatar n tn If there's a real possibility that it would help, I would definitely do it. But I just haven't been able to find much information on tonsil removal in connection with sinus infections. So I'd be grateful for any thoughts you might have on this. I'm particularly interested in whether this is a generally accepted treatment for recurring sinus infections, and whether (statistically or just in your experience) it is effective. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have the same symptom after gallbladder removal, shortness of breath and also voice change sometimes. I had many medications for stomach since that may be acid or bile reflux. I recently stopped all medication, once i stop them, happens again. Now i am drinking apple cyder vinegar and kombucha before or after every meal, it seems helping. Do you have any update how you are doing?
