Stitches With Pus Coming Out
Cut thumb & got stitches while back. Stitches out. Site is pink/bed. Now & then clear liquid leaks out if i break it open accidentally. No puss?
Deep cuts in hand: Can lacerate tendons, nerves and blood vessels just below the skin. Partial lacerations are possible too and the flexor tendons lie in a sheath , a tube of tissue that has fluid in it, and cuts to the sheath may occur even without tendon damage. Stiches can also have retained pieces and the body forms a small pocket of reactive tissue, or there can be a low grade infection. Seek medical attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My sutures came out 5 days post wisdom tooth removed but there still look like a hole back there with white gooey stuff? Is this dry socket?
Infected socket: At 5-7 days a "hole"will be seen in your jawbone. It may be deep enough to trap food. When the clot is dislodged or lost, the bone becomes exposed and this is called alveolar osteitis or dry socket. This may be painful and begin on the second to fourth day and last more than 10 days. Bacteria colonizing in the socket can lead to inflammatory changes which can become infected. See Dr. right away. ...Read more

Localized collection of pus in and near tonsil.a pack came out with pus near tonsils.took antibiotics but pus not completely going? What to do
Could be tonsilith: The "pus" you see and dislodge could simply be a tonsillith or tonsil stone. They occur in patients who have cryptic appearing tonsils. These usually don't require treatment, just gatlrgling with water. A true tonsil abscess requires seeing an ENT doc for drainage. Antibiotics alone usually aren't enough to treat or cure an abscess ...Read more

8 days after wisdomteeth extraction, cleaned sockets with syringe& booger-looking thing came out of the right side-I can see a black hole now-what do?
NoToothFairyForYou..: Great place to stash your diamonds...It was probably a blood clot. Now what's left is the tooth socket cavity. That clot protected the bone at the bottom so now it's susceptible to drying (even with saliva around) so if it starts to hurt call your dentist pronto. He'll know what to do. Be careful chewing on that side and avoid seeds and fine grain or extremes in temperature. Rinse frequently. ...Read more

Got metal splinter in foot and white puss is coming out, i can't get it out. Will it draw out itself?
Foreign body: Not necessarily. And the fact that you have pus coming out of the foot shows that there is an infectious process. I would recommend evaluation by a podiatrist asap. If you can't be seen, go to the er. You need someone to look at the foot, get the metal out, place you on antibiotics and make sure your tetanus status is up to date. ...Read more

Had surgery to remove hrt monitor. Have an area where there are still stitches poking out. Pus and blood coming out of that whole. What could it be?
Could be infection: I always tell my patients to return to see me if they see anything unusual at the surgical site (unusual discharge - pus, green or thick yellow discharge, redness, increased pain or increased warmth). Those are all signs of infection, and it is best to be safe than sorry if you think there may be an infection there. If the stitch is infected it may need to be removed, however that is up to your Dr ...Read more
