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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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?

Abscessed tooth: An abscessed lower back tooth can cause swollen glands in the area you describe. Your glands (lymph nodes) swell up when they are fighting an infection in that area. This is what they are supposed to do. It is unlikely that you have ludwig's angina. Regardless you need to see a dentist or an oral surgeon tomorrow morning. They may place you on an antibiotic to help shrink the infection. ...Read more
