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.

? Sterile abscess: It is possible that you have a sterile abscess, where there is just a collection of serous fluid from irritation, not from infection. If you are not having symptoms (you say no pain or fever), and lab counts do not indicate an ongoing infection, I would think twice and get a second opinion before I would intervene further and have it drained again. ...Read more

I just had a 2 inch abcess bust open n drained really bad n still draining do I still need 2 go 2 the dr?
Probably: To be safe, yes. In all fairness, it depends on where the abscess is and how you are doing otherwise. If the abscess is on your face, if you have a fever, if there is a redness spreading, you definitely need to go. If the abscess has no redness and is superficial, you might be ok just cleaning it out and letting it continue to drain. The drainage is actually a good thing. Your body is fighting infect. ...Read more
