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.

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?

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
