Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

If you have blood poisoning from abscess tooth how long before you notice symptoms?

No...

Toxemia
I think you meant a spread of infection from a localized abscess to become systemic through circulation. The incidence is very rare but it could happen. You would have fever or chill, feeling sick or malaise, and with blood test there would be a raise in white blood cell. Check up with your doctor. Relax and do not over worrying!

What are the chances of dying from a blood clot, blood poison or brain abscess after getting your tounge pierced?

Low likelihood but..

Abscess
There are lots of reasons not to have your tongue pierced- infections, chipped teeth, accidental lacerations, accidental swallowing or aspiration of rings, etc. All the possibilities you mentioned does exist but low likelihood. I understand the need for self expression, but the desire for tongue and lip piercings still escapes me.

What are symptoms of blood poisoning and diagnosis?

Sepsis

Platelet
The medical term for blood poisoning is sepsis which means an infection where microbes are in the blood. Fever, malaise, drenching sweats and chills are the typical symptoms and they are usually abrupt in onset. Diagnosis is with physical exam, white blood cell count and blood cultures as well as a strong suspicion that an infection is present.

How can you detect blood poisoning from abscessed teeth?

Many signs

Toxemia
If your child has sepsis (blood poisoning ) then she will be very sick, have high fevers, and look lethargic. Cultures of the blood will show bacterial growth. This is remarkably rare from abscessed teeth, unless the child as a severe immune deficiency.

Is there a test that can detect blood poisoning from abscessed teeth?

A blood sample

Head-teeth
"Blood poisoning" usually is taken to mean bacteria in the blood, or bacteremia. You can take a sample of the blood and culture it to see if bacteria grow. There are many infections, including teeth infections, that can cause bacteria to go into the blood.

Does asprin and/or tegretol increse the chance of blood poisoning from an infection?

Probably not

Blood
You know, theoretically it's possible...but I haven't seen any evidence for this. Are you asking if these medications increases the chances of your blood becoming infected (sepsis) if you have a small local infection? If so, then I doubt it!

Dr. Lee Pederson answered:

Blood from breast abscess?

Usually not

Sebum
If you have bloody nipple discharge, that needs medical evaluation, and most commonly is related to a growth on the lining of a milk duct. If there is bloody drainage from the incision made on the skin to drain the pus, that is perfectly normal until it heals

Dr. Barbara Toppin answered:

Is blood poisoning the same as sepsis?

Yes

Heart
Many people refer to sepsis as "blood poisoning". It means that bacteria and/or fungi have invaded the blood stream allowing them to travel to many internal organs like the heart or the brain. If untreated a person with this condition may go into septic shock. Antibiotic treatment is needed to treat this condition along with careful monitoring in the hospital
