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?
Thick and white (no Spinnbarkeit effect) discharge from vulva. Is it Skene gland Secretion or C.M. from cul-de-sac (p fornix) of the vaginal introitus?

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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
I have had 5 Bartholin's gland abscess. This being my 5th, could this be caused by not drinking enough water or am I getting these instead of a uti?
Unrelated: Dehydration (if you actually are) and UTI are very very very improbably related to bartholin gland cysts.
I had two Bartholin's gland's abscesses last year in my left gland. All tests came out negative for std's. Could this indicate something serious?
NO just infection: Good it is not a std, so it nothing serious except for pain and discomfort, get it treated, you will be fine.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
I've got swollen glands in my neck I'm taking flucloxacillin for it as I one of my ears are blocked I'm worried its due to an abscess that IV had?
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?
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.See 5 more doctor answers
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.See 3 more doctor answers
