Abscess Drained Still A Lump
I had an abscess drained about 4 months ago. Is it normal for scar tissue to still be hurting? There's no lump or anything. I don't think new abscess
Had an abscess drained from my armpit on 7/20. I still have a hard lump and painful. Could it still be an abscess there or cyst?
Residual disease: Well that should be re-examined by the doctor who cut into it. If it was a surgeon, I expect they will do a proper job in re-exploring the area and taking the necessary action. It's possible the abscess arose from an infected cyst, or there could be some undrained portion that wasn't reached in the first procedure. Hopefully you can go back ASAP to get that looked at. ...Read more
I had my bartholomew abscess drained in the ER about 7 months ago. I healed okay but it still re occurs. How can I be back to normal? No removal
Bartholin's Cyst: If they aren't completely removed, can tend to recur...An option is having a catheter placed that has a small balloon in it to allow your body to make a permanent fistula (bigger permanent hole) that will allow it to drain--it is removed after a while, and hopefully will not become re-infected again. Talk to your gyn about that type of surgical procedure. ...Read more

Yes, It Is:
Yes, that sounds like "normal"recovery.
Each and every succeeding day you should be getting better (swelling, pain, fever, voice, etc).
Please take the medication as advised/prescribed, and especially complete the antibiotics course.
In about 7 - 10 days after the procedure you should have recovered back to your normal healthy self.

a first-degree injury, or neurapraxia, will recover within days after the injury, or it may take up to three months. The recovery will be complete with no lasting muscle or sensory problems.

I had an abscess drained three years ago. It keeps coming back and I have to go to the emergency room to have it drained. I have not gotten any answer?
MD/Dentist: If the abscess is recurring and is located other than in your mouth you need to have an md/pcp do a work up and get a diagnosis. If this is a dental issue then it is from an infected tooth that may or may not have a root canal. The best thing to do in this instance is to see a dentist and get the offending tooth treated. ...Read more

Tooth abscess: It's extremely important that you contact the dentist who treated you immediately. The swelling and fever are likely the result of a serious infection that is not yet under control.

Had tiny anal cut/perforation turned e coli abscess drained/sutured 2yrs ago. Can I safely have anal sex? Ptsd like fear of getting hurt but miss sex

I have a boil, red lump w small protruding pus, treat it w warm compress 3x & amoxicillin 2x, the center healed so there's no way to drain, is it ok?
Boil: The combination of hot compresses and antibiotics may have already helped to decrease the infection causing the boil. Usually it takes more than 2 doses to get rid of the infection. I would continue hot compresses and wait and see if the infection decreases. If it is increasing in size seek medical attention immediately. Keep the area clean and dry if possible. ...Read more
Can I take my extra bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for an abcess tooth? Cant get to a dentist for atleast five more days. It barely hurts but it is draining. No lump either
This is a case where the abscess has fistulated hence the drainage. As long as it is draining, there will be little if any pain.
Bactrim is not used for dental abscesses.
Using warm saltwater rinses will keep the fistula open and draining, preventing the spread of the infection.
At your dental visit they will prescribe and treat as necessary. ...Read more
