In brief: Healing

Depends on factors of size of abscess, means of treatment such as an open wound, how long it takes to heal, if the infection tries to recur, any medical factors such as diabetes, etc.
It may take several days to a few weeks. If it is not improving as you feel it should be, contact your doctor for an examination.
