Avatar f tn Directly betweenthe old sore anthmy lips. Showed overnight just like the cellulitis. I wokeup with a swollen face. Abscess with .5 inch radius. Now Today thewswelling is between my nose and eye, a little above the eye, and theentire bottom right side of my face. Abscess spreads to below my cheek, totjust above my nostrils. It's killing me pain wise and yet when I try to smile there's a numb type feeling. I can't tell if its numb or just the skin stretched too tightly.
Avatar f tn Based upon these findings, I have it ruled down to folliculitis vs. a cyst. The pain mimics that of past underarm folliculitis, however due to the location of the inflammation, drainage or lancing isn't possible for a solo act. I have doxycycline available, and was going to restart it to see if this lump disappears (along with witch hazel for anal-rectal cleaning). Any help would be appreciated!
Avatar n tn One other possibility might be that the apical abscess in the alveolar bone is flaring up with no path of exit since the root canal was completed. In the presence of a lot of draining pus in the root canal system, sometimes antibiotics or a delay in finishing to allow drainage is a good idea. As is it now, hopefully someone can see you to determine whether antibiotics or a retreatment might be in order.
Avatar f tn I am having tons of post op complications like an infected drain, so that was popped out, then I got an abscess, another drain put in and I got cellulitis on the other side. My belly was rock hard and bright red. It is still part hard and red still. The up and down fevers are driving me nuts. I am hot, cold, hot, cold. The cat was for the most part good. He was calm when I came home and while he wanted to be with me, he was patient to a point..
