I have an abscess in my ear canal (diagnosed) got drop antibiotics. How do they remove it and does it hurt? Scared.
?Abscess?: Otitis externa causes significant swelling of the ear canal but rarely a trues abscess. Abscesses are painful so your question "does if hurt?" suggests that it is not an abscess. Further antibiotic drops are usually used for infection of the canal from cellulitis of the canal. Being scared lowers your resistance (immune system) so rest assured that it does not sound like an abscess. ...Read more

I had abscess on my inner ear. Given anti biotics, they did not work. Dr. culted the abscess and it came back +2 enterococcus faecalis ?

Abscess on top part of ear, 4 days. Painful, throbbing. Poked it with tiny lancet& squeezed but only blood came out, no puss. Should I poke deeper?
See a doctor: For these kinds of problems, it's gone beyond the 'home remedy' stage. The issue with the ear is that you don't want a longer term deformity to develop by poking around and digging at this infection. A doctor should better be able to manage this for you. I would call your primary or go to an Urgent Care center where someone could deal with it properly. ...Read more
