Avatar n tn I went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with a bartholin gland abscess. Had the incision and a word catheter was inserted as well. A couple days after this I had a follow up appointment with the local womens clinic and was referred there by the doctor who performed the first i and d. I was then diagnosed with a labial abscess as well and that day had to have another surgery with incision and drainage. I also was diagnosed with mrsa staph infection.
Avatar f tn Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. Treatment includes antibiotics and incision and drainage and do not touch or pick them up. Also apply warm compresses on the lump. If however the symptoms persist then get lymphadenopathy ruled out from your doctor.
Avatar n tn In the acute form antibiotics are administered and eventually incision and drainage of the abscess are performed. In the chronical form excision of the diseased milksinus and fibrotic tissue with the nipple is mandatory. We do not hesitate to excise the majority of the milksinuses.
1657910 tn?1302375661 I just had an abscess open and it is draining red blood primarily. Is this normal? Should I put a call into my breast surgeon to be on the safe side? My regular abscesses are the regular pus with blood mixed in at times, but never just blood. Can anyone help?
1548207 tn?1303457780 She asked me to clean ot with Betadine (antiseptic solution) which I kept handy ever since this abscess series. And then do the gauze dressing just like you did. Basically you just have to try and keep it infection free untill you see your doctor. I went to see her the next day and she cleaned everything out by expressing it (I still remember the pain while she was pressing I almost drove out some of her patients waiting outside bcoz of my oooo aaaaaass and ouch :)).
Avatar n tn If theres a fistula (lil gum boil), sometimes warm salt water will help pull the pus out of the abscess. Otherwise, your dentist can perform an incision and drainage but I wouldn't recommend that route at all. The root canal was done and everything should be fine now. Good luck with hygiene school! Maybe I'll see you at some ADA functions. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn On Nov 9th he had surgery for shunt failure and on Nov. 14th he had CSF fluid leaking from incision. It was discovered that he had another failure, had revision and is now having fluid leaking again. His neuro. did not tap his shunt or do CT scan this time, said she thinks it is residual fluid coming from the burr hole. He is now 1 week 3 days post op. Is it reasonable to expect a leak still? I can not find any information on this anywhere. Also isnt infection a major worry?
1116428 tn?1258892465 Also, the first doc appt they ruled out that it does not have any liquid or puss in it because they attempted to drain it with an incision. They obviously have no clue what it because they keep calling it just an abscess, a cyst, enlarged lymph node, infection, lump. No real diagnosis answer till its dissected and looked at. OH and also...It's NOT pink...
Avatar f tn If the abscess has fully formed, it warrants incision and drainage of the abscess. This is an emergency and needs to be treated with IV antibiotics. It is also an indication for tonsillectomy. But in the initial stages it can be treated with oral antibiotics. If your symptoms are worsening or are not improving, go to the ER for an assessment. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar n tn Hello, From your symptoms, it looks like a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. An examination by a gynecologist will be the best as pus is draining which means that you may need antibiotics or incision and drainage. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Hello, If the lump reduces in size then you can continue with the treatment but if the lump remains the same or worsens in symptoms then probably incision and drainage and a course of antibiotics may be required. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Avatar m tn Like my last spine surgery, results were immediate and at 2 day mark symptoms came back due to post op swelling. After another 3 days my back felt good enough to stop all pain meds. This time however some nerve pain has returned. I don't remember this happening last time. Is it normal to have symptoms come and go within 2 weeks of surgery. I do still have golfball sized knot around incision area so I assume there is still swelling inside. Thanks for your input.
Avatar n tn Is it the tonsils or adenoids? It could also be quinsy, which is peritonsillar abscess that is there is pus collection around the tonsils. This is an emergency and needs to be treated with IV antibiotics. Sometimes it warrants incision and drainage of the abscess. It is also an indication for tonsillectomy. So, continue with the antibiotics. Keep monitoring his symptoms, if worsening, then consult your doctor. Good Luck with his therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn May want to have a rectal- ultrasound to see where the abscess (fistula) is and find out if the abscess is gone. I'm on Medicaid and they covered the tests and surgeries.

Avatar f tn Hello, As the boil/carbuncle or abscess has not responded to any treatment even oral antibiotics,so incision and drainage from a doctor may be needed.I would suggest that she consults her PCP and gets an incision and drainage done followed by a course of antibiotics.Till the pus is drained out,there will be little relief. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like a boil. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.

508690 tn?1210950237 He currently feels (in relation to hand pain) the way he felt pre-op. His incision site is still considerably swollen but has gone down dramaticly since the procedure. Is it normal for the pain to reoccur? I'm assuming the nerve is swollen, we've been placing cold packs at the incision site and he is still on his medications for pain and muscle relaxers. Would a medication such as an anti-inflamatory be beneficial at this point as well? PLEASE HELP!
Avatar f tn Apparently about 1 week passed before I realized it ( no pain, just flu symptoms that were persistant) A huge abscess had grown where my ruptured appendix was and so this prevented my surgeon from taking out the appendix. He could only drain the abscess. I was in the hospital for 9 days and was told after an abdominal scan I was clear of abscesses. I was sent home but under home care since my wound was still open.
Avatar f tn Hello, Behind the ear there is skin, fat, cartilage, bone, nerves, blood vessels, Lymph nodes, and salivary gland tissue (a portion of the parotid salivary gland extends behind the ear). A bump can develop from any of those structures. From your symptoms it can be a boil or an abscess. You should keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
1320325 tn?1274380583 A tender red or inflamed lump could be a hair follicle infection that enlarged, a boil, an abscess, an infected cyst, an infected hematoma or an insect bite that got infected. Since you have had a course of antibiotics and this has not helped, the best thing to do would be consult a doctor. You would probably need an incision and drainage of the lump, followed by local antibiotic application and dressing. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted.
