abscess

Avatar m tn by the time i got to the er the doctor told me that my abscess was 1 inch by 3/8 of an inch big. that is pretty large for an abscess. with something like this the longer you put it off the worst it will get. hope you feel better soon.
Avatar f tn Any other symptoms perhaps, like pain or tingling? A tooth abscess or other dental issue may cause it. (Dentist) If not, check for common food allergies. They can affect either side. I used to react to eggplant in the past, and it always affected my right side. Keep an eye out for peanuts and other nuts, shellfish, wheat,eggs,dairy,soy, as they are more common than other foods. (Allergist) I can't think of anything else unless there's some kind of a tissue infection on that side of the face.
Avatar n tn I still need 2 crowns upper right, and one crown lower right with a few more cavities filled. My dentist says there is no signs of dental abscess, but I have been having a lot of bad symptoms that seem to be getting worse. I feel really ill all the time. All my teeth hurt, It comes, and goes for what seems like no reason at all. My face feels tight, and puffy sometimes. My eyes burn. I get headaches, and sensitivity to light.

Avatar m tn Feeling very unwell, sometimes unable to get out of bed, pain on left side of face and head. Had x rays, cat scan, MRI, blood work. All normal except for slight thickness on left side. Nobody can find infection, and yet I respond to antibiotics to the point I am able to function, ei. Get out of bed, shower, go for a walk. I am currently taking ibuprophen for pain. Outside of this, I was a very healthy, active person.
Avatar n tn Otherwise, just watch for swelling, cloudy drinking water and external holes. Like I said before, if the symptoms continue, a vet visit is a good idea for antibiotics and a firm diagnosis. Otherwise, if there are no more symptoms, then it's probably already resolved. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Hello all, I recently discovered a mass in my pubic region (about an inch above the base of my penis) that resembles some big zits that I have had on my face. As such, I proceeded to pop this zit, resulting in several breaks in skin (it looked as if multiple "whiteheads" had emerged and burst). Some white-yellow-brownish pus like substance discharged, followed by minor bleeding. I also removed the hair follicles that were rooted in the mass.
Avatar n tn Dental Abscess SYMPTOMS: Swelling on whole right side of face/gums Extreme pain/tenderness along with pressure On JUNE 1st I went to the ER because I woke up that morning with slight swelling that I watched grow throughout the day. The Dr. prescribed me 500mg penicillin vk. I take one ever six hours. I've been doing that since 9:15pm JUNE 1st and I noticed only a slight change in my swelling and none in my pain. If anything It looked like the swelling just shifted.
Avatar f tn Anyways, It has been about 3 days and it seems like the abscess is constantly leaking pus down my throat. My throat is sore and raw, I constantly taste the foul pus, especially when i talk or put any type of pressure on the area. I can't take it being that i am a germ freak. I have tried to pop it but it just slowly comes out (no blood) and It seems like its a small, hard, white ball that kind of moves around under the gum. I don't know what to do??? Please help?

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 m tn Hello, A clinical examination is necessary for accurate diagnosis and management of your symptoms. White bumps on the face may be caused by acne. Pores can become blocked by dirt, oils, or other foreign elements. The elements can cause the pore to abscess. This abscess can result in a fluid filled pustule. This pustule may appear white in color and be surround by redness and skin irritation. It is possible that it is a white head. It is best to get it examined by a dermatologist.
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 m tn About 1 week ago i noticed slight inflammation on my palate (right under my right sinuses, the striated or bumpy part in the back) and was so scared that it was oral cancer that it prompted me to immediately stop smoking and chewing (chewed some grizzly on and off for 6 months a couple years ago then it petered out to a can every few months, smoked between 1/2 pack and 2-5 cigs a day for 4 years) and quit smoking entirely (i use ecig vape now) because it wasnt really accompanied by any other sy
Avatar n tn I noticed my dogs face near her cheek is swollen and her neck on the same side is also swollen, its soft in her neck not hard. It wasnt a gradual growth i just notices it last night. Shes acting completly normal shell let me touch it. She does have bad teeth but my vet has never been able to check her mouth for as long as ive had her. I adopted her and she not very nice with other people (we have to muzzle her and sedate her prior to going to the vet). Any ideas of what could be causing this?
Avatar n tn Are there other symptoms present? Facial swelling or the build-up of fluid in the tissues of the face may be caused by a variety of conditions such as allergic reaction, angioedema, drug reactions, injury or trauma to the face, salivary gland disorders, sinusitis and even tooth abscess. If you experienced difficulty of breathing in the past, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation.
Avatar m tn A week ago I could barely open my jaw, I set a dentists appointment however, the night before that my face blew up in swelling. Not just normal swelling either. My face was rock hard and huge. I went to Urgent Care. I was admitted to the ER 'due the size of my face' and eventually transferred to another hospital 35 minutes away that had an oral surgical team. When I arrived there, I was told I'd be having an operation. I was a little thrown, but I usually just let the doctors do their thing!
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it sounds like boils or abscess. 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. Keep the area clean and apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Avatar f tn Pain involving one side of face could be due to Trigeminal neuralgia, abscess in tooth, exposed root canal, internal ear infection, maxillary sinusitis, TMJ, migraine, herpes (recurrent) without rash or fibromyalgia localized to face. An eye examination should also be carried out. If all these are ruled out, then yes, it can be stress related. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar m tn Could you think of any other disease or situation that would lead me to have symptoms like these? I haven't told my doctor about all my symptoms yet, but I do plan on seeing him Friday. The visit I had with him in January was very short, and he just wanted me to get a CBC and xray at the time. I meant to discuss ALL my symptoms, but I guess I was anxious and thought anything wrong would just come up in the blood work.
Avatar n tn my 10 year old has a skin problem on the face ,wherever i just touch her on the face it will become infected,plzzz if anyone can help me find out whats this problem.....i took her to the doctor,but he just simply said all those marks on her face are scratches!
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I had a left backmolder remove-before they could remove the tooth, I was on amocinllion because I had an abscess. When the tooth was remove, and I continued to take the antibotic-the next day my face was numb-, I contacted the office to see if they could see me, and I could not be seen. To make a long story short-I had to go too the emergency room because i started to get sharp pains in my head-the emergency room dr.believed I have Osteomylitis.

514510 tn?1272722336 Are there other symptoms present? Fever may suggest infection. However, if it occurs only in one side of the face and arm, you may need to have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation and to rule out neurological issues. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn A shifted atlas can cause a myriad of symptoms. A simple adjustment can fix it. I had the exact same symptoms you are complaining of. They will have you get 3 ex-rays one of which is from the top of the head looking down towards the mouth. The Dr. then takes some measurements and fixes you and quite painlessly and quickly. Results are usually felt immediatly but followups are important. This procedure is excellent for whiplash also as it is non-invasive and extremely gentle.
Avatar n tn dentist took X-ray which was negative (i guess meant negative for abscess) and said tooth is sensitive and I could either 1) look into root canal or 2) maybe try sensodine to see if sensitivity clears up or 3) maybe switch out the white filling for a silver filling - maybe the white filling is irratating the nerve. i tried the sensodine and pain went away october, 2008 - tooth still feels good, no sensitivity and had my routine dental checkup. thurs Nov.

Avatar n tn There is marked fever and continuing symptoms suggestive of a persistent infection. If a bacterial cause of the sore throat isn't treated appropriately, it can spread, leading to more serious infection. Imaging of the head can be considered to evaluate for any abscess. A referral to an ENT physician can be considered to further look at the sore throat and to determine if it has spread. If so, IV antibiotics and hospitalization may be needed.
