Hello. I've experience recently a white tiny bump around the urethra. Its itchy and it does not hurt when I pee. Could it be a skene gland cyst?

Maybe-Check this out: Skene duct cysts develop next to the distal urethra, sometimes causing perineal discharge, dyspareunia, urinary obstruction, or abscess formation. So it's possible. You should have an exam by your gynecologist to be on the safe side.

Skin infections: Pus filled bumps on the skin are the symptom of a skin infection. When they become red, warm to touch and painful it is called cellulitis. Treatment of this includes oral antibiotics and occassionally drainage. See your doctor ASAP because resistant infections are becoming more common and require special treatment. Start with your GP /urgent care facility if dermatologist will not see you now.

I realized that I have 2 abscesses on my gums and made an appointment. My sublingual glands have a white color and am worried. What could this be?

I realized that I have 2 abscesses on my gums and made an appointment. My sublingual glands have a white color and am worried. What could this be?

Infected/Blocked: It could be an infected or blocked salivary gland. If blocked, it might be as simple as opening the duct that allows flow of saliva into your mouth. If infected, it will need to be determined if the gland itself became infected or if it is from an abscessed tooth and treat with antibiotics and appropriate treatment for the primary cause of infection.

I have been diagnostic with perianal abscess, currently taking flagyl. I don't have swelling, will the abscess affect my reproductive glands (male), ?

I have been diagnostic with perianal abscess, currently taking flagyl. I don't have swelling, will the abscess affect my reproductive glands (male), ?

No effect: Most perianal absceses are from pilonidal cyts. If the antibiotics such as Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Flagyl don't bring the infection under control then excision or drainage is indicated. These infections do not produce orchitis where impairment of testicular function could happen.

ENT issue: You would need to complete your antibiotic therapy and if there is no improvement check with an ENT doctor. Abscesses could take a while to resolve.

Abscessed tooth. Pen vk for 13 days and still infected. Is augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) safe when I have a pineal gland cyst since it lowers the seizure threshold?

Abscessed tooth. Pen vk for 13 days and still infected. Is augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) safe when I have a pineal gland cyst since it lowers the seizure threshold?

Get help NOW!: 13 days of antibiotics is 2-3 times longer than you should have gone without definitive treatment. Antibiotics control the spread of dental infections, but by themselves do not cure them. The tooth needs root canal treatment or extraction for "cure." pills alone won't do it. Ask your dentist to refer you to endodontist or oral surgeon immediately.

I have an abscess tooth with no pain. My face is swollen, I have itching, numbness, and slight pain. My glands are swollen around my jowl line and back of neck. What should I do?

I have an abscess tooth with no pain. My face is swollen, I have itching, numbness, and slight pain. My glands are swollen around my jowl line and back of neck. What should I do?

Seek Treatment: Abcesses, even without pain, indicate infections that can spread to other places in your body. Often the infection will find a way to drain (usually the sinuses) which may be why you do not feel pain. It needs intervention right away. At a minimum antibiotics but most likely root canal treatment or extraction will be needed.

Please see a dentist: Never wait on treating a swelling in the mouth. Oral swellings are close to the airway and brain. Please see a dentist asap.

Can a Bartholin's gland abcess cause a defloration?

Can a Bartholin's gland abcess cause a defloration?

Not likely: Typically this is treated with some sort of drainage and/or antibiotics. If by "defloration" you mean the hymen getting disrupted or broken, then it would not happen by the presence of a bartholin gland abscess alone.
