Doctor insights on:
Paronychia Will It Be Fine Without Antibiotics If The Pus Came Out
Yes: As long as source control is achieved (i, e, drainage) and the reason for the infection has been addressed (ingrown nail, others), then your immune system can handle the rest of the infection. Just keep the area absolutely clean and wash your hands.
Surgical drainage: Bad paronychia (infections of the skin surrounding a fingernail) often don't respond to antibiotics since the bacteria that are causing it are walled off in an abcess (pus filled balloon). The definitive treatment is surgical, the affected part of the nail or cuticle needs to be opened to allow the paronychia to drain. If that does not help, a portion of the nail can be removed.

Herpes zoster: Keep taking the antibiotic. The blisters should dry up after a few days. If you're impatient, use a sterile needle and pop the blisters, then clean the area with some soap and water. Then keep the area dry.

What is the question: The fact that you are feeling better and no longer have pyuria (pus in urine) is good. If, however, you have had pyelonephritis (kidney infection), one week of antibiotic therapy may not be sufficient. In addition, UTI in a man generally requires a full urologic assessment to discern whether some anatomic defect was responsible for the onset of infection. Please see your doctor again.
A vulvar red swelling, hot, tender, no pus yet, should I take sytemic antibiotic?? or topical Fucidin is enough???
Possible abscess: Probably best to let your doctor decide in person. Selling, pain and redness obviously can mean infection in the form of abscess/cyst. (You know this as you mentioned pus.) If it is a fluid collection, the best treatment is for your doctor to numb and open it. Systemic antibiotics don't really do the trick. You can get redness from yeast, of course. Warm water soaks, see your doctor.
Severe folliculitis on abt 60% of scalp, pus filled odorous about 1/2sq in size Treated with steroid shot and antibiotic neither worked, suggestions?
Consider ID referral: A referral to an Infectious diseases specialist may help to: 1) Determine a specific diagnosis (such as tinea capitis or hydraneitis suppurativa), 2) Prescribe a more appropriate medication (like an anti-fungal agent), 3) Find the source of infection (which you may be re-exposing yourself), or 4) Connect to other specialists if advanced treatment is necessary (e.g. Anti-TNF therapy).
Will the pus from a stye drain out with the triple antibiotic ointment or will that make it worse?
Little effect: Styes are best treated with frequent applications of very warm wet washcloths. Antibiotics will not penetrate and will make little difference. Use the heat at least 5 times per day for 4-5 minutes at a time.

My urine test results are urine micro pus cells 25-30, epithelial cells 20-25.My doc have given antibiotic without having culture test done. Is it ok?
Not at all: That is not right. The first thing would be to repeat the urinalysis since there were skin cells, ie, contamination, on the collection. These skin cells could have been the source of the wbcs. Also, how would he know if the antibiotic would properly treat this infection if there was no culture to base it upon. Pls repeat the test.

Hello! I have Tonsillitis with white spots on my tonsils. It's pus. I am on antibiotic and 5 days later I haven't a temperature but still have pus.

My 9 year old son had strep 4 weeks ago and just got it again. Doc gave a stronger antibiotic clindamycin. When will the white pus on tonsil go away?
Virus or strep?: The white stuff you see is called an exudate. Tonsillitis with exudate is not always caused by strep. That's why it is important to take a throat culture to make a definitive diagnosis you child may have an adenovirus which cause exudative tonsillitis but does not respond to antibiotics.
