Avatar n tn It went away in a few days. She said its an abscess. I got another one now and its really small comapared to the one I had before but its on the right side this time she prescribed me dicloxacillin again and said it should go away soon. This time it didn't need to be popped because its really small and donts hurt at all like the first one. Hope this helps but I do suggest to anyone to not rely on a fourm / website for info to go to a doctor or emergency room to get it taken care of.

870040 tn?1252618719 What should we be doing or looking for? What could be causing this leg weakness? Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn I have these odd pimple like bumps on my leg that have been on it for the past two years. They pop like zits (as in pus will come out with white stuff) but they never go away. They don't itch, don't hurt unless I mess with them, but are red and embarrassing. It's summer now and quite frankly it stinks to be in public with them. I've been to 2 dermatologists and my doctor about 10 times. I'm starting to give up on doctor's altogether.
Avatar m tn Hello, From your symptoms it can be a boil or an abscess. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. Till then 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.

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.

I also recently had tooth infection (abscess) which was treated with antibiotics but I need a root canal as well. My cardiologist said the heart symptoms could also be caused by this infection. Did she mean sepsis?? Because it certainly feels like something very bad is happening in my body.

Avatar n tn Ever since that day i wold have an attack at night, i was afraid of being alone at night for some reason. This all started after my fathers leg surgery was botched and he got blood clots. I started to feel pains in my leg thinking i had blood clots myself, he would get chest pains, i would get them too every pain he had i had. Ive been in and out of the hospital, had numerous tests done (my doctors said i was in 100% perfect health) this included x rays, ekg's blood tests, echograms.
Avatar n tn I can't believe there are people out there with the same symptoms as me. I am 32 F, about 3 months ago I had calf pain in left leg. Started waking up in middle of the night with a feeling like someone turned a light swith on. Then started getting numbness in left foot along with a vibration feeling. Then the burning skin and twithces strated. I had normal MRI and C-Spine. Normal nerve test. One Dr. said it was in my head and it is not! I am waiting on lymes test, but I am doubtful.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).

I am 30yr..also I did have a pelvic ultrasound 6 moths ago for something else and my ovaries were normal size.

Avatar f tn My girlfriend has a lump between her vagina and her leg. It's on the upper half of her vagina. It is more of a bump. It isn't real tall but it hurts her to touch it and she told me this morning that it has gotten bigger. Do you know what it might be? Or what she can do to make it feel better? Please help I'm worried about her.
579258 tn?1250652943 Last night I went to the ER for a dressing change that involves unpacking and repacking 2 newly drained abscess areas. As I arrived, the pain became sharp and shooting and I was not able to sit; no position was comfortable. We went through the normal check-in process with standard questions, BP check and an ID band and was taken back to an exam room. Once into a hospital gown and a sheet, I laid down on the table with my head elevated and my knees bent.
Avatar n tn My symptoms started on the 2nd day after having gotten the tattoo done , ended up with flu like symptoms , mild fever and severe leg pain ,felt like electric shocks running through my body , at that time i recovered but after 20 days symptoms started again .
Avatar m tn 9 for both HSV 1 and 2 I'm still worried. March 22 I had an abscess near my perineum recur. It first appeared back in September but never ruptured, just went away after about a week. This time it ruptured and the doc put me on Bactrim. I had what I feel was an allergic reaction. Fever, rigors, rash etc. 2 days after my risk, wife and I have relations. Next day I had a little itch/feeling in my urethra. This prompted all the anxiety and testing. Came back clean so I went on with life.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms it sounds like a boil or an abscess. A boil caused due to staph infection 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. Apply warm compresses on these bumps and consult a dermatologist for examination and confirmation of diagnosis.
Avatar n tn After a course of amoxicillin for an abscess I was left with a dry, white tongue. This was 10 weeks ago. 3 weeks later I went to the doctor and they said I had nothing to worry about. I went to get a second opinion after 4 weeks and I was given Nystatin for a week.
Avatar f tn Over the past several months I have developed pain in the lower right side of my adomen. While constant the intensity varies. Often there is lower back pain extending into the right hip and leg but not always. No nausea or diarrehea. Gallbladder was removed 5 years ago. Ultrasound of ovaries was normal however urine test detected blood in the urine leading to a CT Scan which showed a swollen pancreas but no other signs of abnomality. Ibuprofen relieves the pain.
Avatar f tn He said that it hurts when pressure is applied and it seems to cause pain that radiates down his left leg. He broke his left ankle over a year ago so he has had pain in that side of his body occasionally, but that doesn't explain the sudden lump. Any ideas of what it could be? Do you think its necessary for him to go to his Dr?
Avatar m tn I do have a healing abscess on my upper left leg. I did not experience any ARS symptoms that I can recall, but I read that swollen lymph nodes in multiple places are a good indicator of hiv infection. I'm going crazy with worry. Please help.
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 However, for the next 3 years the bumps came back and around the same time of year (Aug-Sept), and once again disappeared. I have located two on my leg beginning to form once again and am growing concerned. I'm unable to find any information even closely relating/resembling these recurring bumps. Please help!! Thank you!
