Abscess smell

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess smell


Avatar n tn In Nov 2008, I had a swelling below my right breast which was diagnosed as "Abscess". It would ooze out puss with blood and was very painful. After healing,a scar developed around that spot and A FOUL SMELL THAT OF PUS actually emanates from that area(i.e when you touch the area surrounding the scar) What could be happening inside?
Avatar f tn I had a tooth pulled out on the 19/05/15, this tooth had a abscess for around 12 - 13 years, other dentists seemed very reluctant to pull the tooth. What I wanted to ask is, how long should it take before the swelling goes down or will it even go down with it being a very old abscess? I was thinking it may just take time because I think it affected the area either side of it as well. The dentist didn't give me any antibiotics but I'm assuming that's because she pulled the tooth out.

Avatar m tn Would a gum abscess cause shooting pain from gum area across cheek to eye, and down neck?
Avatar n tn From the antibiotics? Or the actual abscess.. I read somewhere that it is possible for the abscess to still linger until all the dead cells are removed so the taste/smell can linger. Any ideas? I am not in horrible pain so I don't believe it is a dry socket. I can't really describe the taste other than unpleasent. Also, brownish small globs were coming out of the area the night after my extraction.
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
Avatar n tn and it smells really bad making the inner wears dirty smell. Actually the abscess is forming from the anus till the perineum. In addition, there are three or more swelling around the entrance of the anus, but it's not painful when going to bathroom. Would you please tell me what is this disease and what is the treatment for this. Is it contagious? Someone please help......
Avatar f tn Abscess of dental origin is probably not related to blood in semen.Seeing medical profession is advised.
Avatar n tn we have just noticed a strange smell from our miniature jack russel ***** she is about a year old, the brown stain she leaves on your lap is very much like rust. we thought it was similar to the redish brown water that comes from the old mine workings in our area ie redcar & cleveland uk. anybody any ideas as to the cause would be very grateful for any advice.
Avatar f tn It hurts when I wipe that area and I have a weird smell. panties bother it too so I'm grateful when work is over so I can get home and let her breathe. I've had a hot washcloth on it for about 15 minutes now & it seems like the swelling is going down? Any thoughts on what could be going on down here?
Avatar n tn This blockage is what causes the smell. Think of it like a tooth abscess or sebaceous cyst, but, this problem can be around the eyes, ears or throat/neck. This can interfere with your energy levels, your brain function, and in general, the way your body “feels.” It is an infection and I found that dealing with it in a way similar to a tooth abscess is what worked, for me.
Avatar f tn The day after that they noticed an infection smell on my breath and gave me antibiotics and later steriods. I was released 3 days later but the following day readmitted due to pain. The day after that I was given a CT scan and my MD found an abscess on my right side. Immediately the following day I was sent back to my oral surgeon's office which is attached to a hospital. Later that day I had surgery on the abscess, the Oral Surgeon enlisted the help of an ENT doctor also.
Avatar n tn last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Avatar f tn Hello, There are many causes of rectal discharge chief ones being inflammation of rectum, infections, anorectal abscess and fistula, polyps, cancers and ulcerative colitis. You need to get it examined from a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. 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. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum. Pus drains out if the skin over the abscess breaks. An abscess usually results from an acute infection of a small gland just inside the anus. An anal fistula, on the other hand, usually results from a previous abscess.It is a small tunnel connecting the anal gland from which the abscess arose to the skin outside the anus.
Avatar n tn For the past six months, on and off I will smell burning hair for about a minute. It's happened about 5 or 6 times in total. When this happens, no one else around me smells it. I'm hesitant to think it's an oncoming stroke or anything of that sort because I'm only 30 years old and in excellent health otherwise. Any ideas? I've made an appointment with a neurologist but thought I'd post and hopefully get some alternate feedback. It's making me a bit anxious.
621465 tn?1221541188 They were not accompanied by a bad taste or any strange residue on my tongue (as sometimes a bad smell can come from the mouth). No one else could smell these smells, and they went with me everywhere. Even when I left the house I could smell them. I tried putting oils (vanilla, orange etc) under my nose, but the other smell over powered it.
Avatar m tn Hi.I am aware that my wisdom tooth is being retained in the gum after I took an X ray, but after months, that area of my gum smells very bad whenever I push it with my finger or by chewing food on it. It also smells in the gap between the gum and the next tooth. I hate this and wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions to reduce this smell.
Avatar n tn If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. My dentist did the ususl once-every 6 months cleaning but the smell persists. He took an X-Ray and he ruled out any tooth decay and he says that the gums look fine. He sent me to a gum specialist and she too didnt find anything. At this point both me and my dentist are out of options.
Avatar m tn Note that this is a smell that only I can smell. My wife tells me that she cannot smell anything in my breath. I've seen other posts where folks say that their mucous has an odor, but this is not the case with my condition. It's not associated with any infection, such as a cold viurs. Does anyone have this condition or something similar?
Avatar n tn I would even suggest you smell your mattress, to make sure it doesn't smell funny. Because it could be sleeping on it and not showering until the next day, you could be bringing that bedding odor with you to work. There is also a chance that your closet or dressers where you keep your clothes might have an odor that you'll need to get rid of.
Avatar n tn I want to ask I have abscess sometimes formed a small circle then fleak out with abscess and blood..then its smell tooth decayed ..I have a tooth decayed but inside of teeth that retain.It is started a years...about the symptoms..esp.abscess in my nose..
Avatar f tn that's a good place to start. Hopefully this will help abcess open up. It will smell awful~!!! Let it drain. Do not let it seal back up. vaseline is very helpful in keeping it from closing back up.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with an abscess tooth for many years. I go to the dentist and they give me medicine and it will clear up. They have recommended that I go to an oral surgeon yet I continue to put it off. Today I experienced the taste and smell of the infection and can feel a little pain in me throat and am starting to worry. Is there anything that I can do to ensure that the infection doesn't spread until I get into the dentist or should I go to the emergency room?
Avatar m tn I have an upper left molar which required an emergency root canal during a hiking trip in France due to an abscess in 2011. They redid the root canal (or finished it anyhow) when I returned home, but were not entirely happy with how it was done. Since then, I've had fleeting pain around the tooth, but repeated xrays showed nothing at all unusual. In October 2013 I was in Hong Kong for a job interview and the gum above the tooth became sore and bruised.
Avatar n tn My 4 year old cat periodically gets a horrible smell and has a milky discharge from her rectum. She's an indoor cat that won't even attempt to go outside even if the door is opened in front of her. Her sister/littermate lives with us too but shows no signs of these problems. It seems to happen every couple of weeks and lasts for just a day or two. It seems to happen immediately after drinking milk (within an hour or two) but a couple of times it happened when she had no milk at all.
Avatar n tn I have been to my dentist and had an x-ray where nothing was found - as I have no pain he informed me that it isn't an abscess. He told me he couldn't smell anything (which was very frustrating as I definitely could) and gave it a thorough clean - I felt a little disappointed as he seemed rather abrupt with me when I voiced my concerns and even said 'I don't do miracles' which I felt was unnecessary and irrelevant!
Avatar f tn My dentist took an x-ray of my mouth and found no sign of a tooth abscess, even though when she drilled the infected tooth (which had a filling), there was a foul smell, indicating an abscessed tooth. There is also a swelling below my left jaw, and it is difficult to swallow and open my mouth. The dentist didn't explain much regarding why the x-Ray didn't reflect the tooth abscess. When we asked about the swelling in my jaw, she answered (rather uncertainly) maybe, it was because of trauma?
