I Have An Abcess In The Center Outside Of My Throat What Caused It
Wasn't fully answered... Can a dental abscess be hard and if so what causes it and would it causes white and dark patches on tossils and throat?
A lot to cover...: 1) hard? Yes. Long term infections grow inside the bone causing the bone to expand. It is hard because it is encased in bone, or under high pressure under the soft tissue. 2)unsure if i've seen these cause patches on the tonsils. Sounds like maybe strep throat or something else. See an endodontist/dentist for tooth eval, and physician for the throat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many other things can cause throat and ear pain as well, so you should have this checked out by both a dentist and your M.D. To determine what is going on and how best to treat it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can cause swollen glands under chin like close to the throat?! help please freakin out ! I have a tooth abcess! do I have ludwings agnia?

They may place you on an antibiotic to help shrink the infection. ...Read more
Can an abscess on your gums that look black cause your lymph nodes to swell in the neck and armpits?
Went to the ER cause my neck is slightly swaollen by jaw they said nothing was wrong gave me an atibotic is this normal with a tooth abcess?.
Normal for ER: I have a great respect for er physicians. They will be the first to agree they don't like handling dental problems. The er concern is to get you out of the er. Usually with a very temporary relief not solution. Pain meds and antibiotics are good until the antibiotic effect is gone, the pain returns and you run out of pain meds. You get to do it all over again. Find a dentist for dental pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a sebaceous cyst on neck. Was given cephalexin at ER because it caused a skin abscess(?).Will this get rid of it, or will i still need surgery?
Sebaceous cyst: The cephalexin was prescribed to treat the infection. This will likely improve the swelling/size of the cyst, but will not get rid of it. The only way to get rid of it is through complete excision, which can often be performed in the office setting under local anesthesia. ...Read more
