Perianal abscess: It is not uncommon that by plucking a hair in the perianal area that an abscess can develop. The area is constantly contaminated and at risk for infection. Should that happen, warm sitz baths 2-3x/day help bring vascular supply to the area needed for healing. If the site doesn't resolve, then antibiotics may be needed. Rare for surgical intervention.

Dr.: Dr. Mcleod is right. There is nothing that you can do at home. In addition, going to the emergency room just wastes previous tax dollars. Please go see your dentist, or go to the many free clinics, or hospitals residencies out there. The resources are there. You just have to go... Best wishes, dr. Zev kaufman.

Boil: Boils are referred to as abscesses, in the medical community. They can occur from breaks in the skin, which provide a route of infection for bacteria to form an abscess (collection of pus/infection). When this happens, you may need to see a medical provider who may need to prescribe you antibiotics or incise and drain the abscess. Some home remedies may include a warm compress and ibuprofen.

What are some home remedy for cold sores in the mouth?

What are some home remedy for cold sores in the mouth?

No cure- it's herpes: More than likely it's caused by a herpes outbreak (hsv-1 typically). Drinking acidic fluids can make the situation worse; with poor dental hygiene, the burden of bacteria will allow the ulcers to fester. In certain instances, medications such as Acyclovir can help. Otherwise, the burden of oral bacterial can be tamed by the use of either listerine or a warm salt water gargle for 1min, 3 times daily.

What is a home remedy to make your teeth stop hurting you?

What is a home remedy to make your teeth stop hurting you?

The telephone: Any pain numbing product, whether prescription, OTC, or "home" remedy, will only mask symptoms as the cause of the pain becomes more widespread. The best remedy is pick up the telephone, call your Dentist, and make an appointment to treat (eliminate) the cause of the pain. If it's an abscess pain meds will not stop the spread of the infection through your body. CALL NOW!
