Call dentist: Just because the abscess is draining does not mean the tooth is fine.

Failure to treat can cause further breakdown of the tooth and bone, and result in the loss of that tooth. ...Read more

Age and Biopsy: Inflammatory breast cancer may appear like an infected breast but not typically produce pus to drain. Missing from your presentation is your age. The older you are, the more serious you need to follow this up with the surgeon who drained your abscess. Judging from your picture, if that's you, this is unlikely breast cancer. Ask your surgeon if a biopsy was done. It's not always necessary. ...Read more

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 more

Always: Always you should be able to contact your dentist if you have any concerns about your treatment or recovery. Though it sounds as if all is going well. The antibiotics generally take 48 - 72 hours to kick in and start making you feel better. However, there is a small percentage of cases that do not respond to the particular antibiotics you are using and the infection actually can get dramatically worse very quickly. That is why you should contact your dentist if there are questions regarding this. ...Read more
