Abscess treatment: The definitive cure for these is often simple surgical opening & removal of contents. Left alone they often spontaneously vent/drain only to re-accumulate germs & pus because a capsule/rhine is left behind that does so. Sometimes a small one will self heal if you apply heat to the area which improves circulation & allows better access to your own healing factors.
