Fever after draining the puss in heat boil on butt. Prescribed antibiotics. Advice - Online Doctor Chats
Dr XXXXXXX here
How can I help you ?
i am having a heat boil kind of stuff on my butt for past 5 days
Is there pus formarmation in the lesion ?
i went to a doctor today and he has drained the puss (red colour) and covered with a cloth so that the puss will not touch the pants
Thats right treatment
has he placed you on antibiotics ?
or adviced antibiotic ointment ?
and asked to clean the area with soap everyday and cover it back with cloth
but i still see the area like doom shape and hard.. is it normal? will it take some more days to become flat?
also the pain is there but slightly better than earlier
antibiotics will treat it but will surely take time
how long does it take to become normal and the pain to subside
pain may subside in two r three days
not yet taken the antibiotic
the lesion heals by one week\
start the antibiotic soo n
fever is a sign of infection
antibiotics will treat the infection and reduce fever , swelling and pain
he asked to come back in next 3 days for further examination
but i was not having fever when i have visited the doctor
thats to recheck if there is pus again
is it normal to develop fever
yes , its normal to get fever after breaking the pustule
this is due to leak of chemicals from the lesion to the blood and cause fever
so antibiotic should take care of the fever as well?
should i avoid pressure from the affected part?
since it is in the butts.. it hurts while sitting
will the pressure worsen the situation?
yes, try to avoid pressure over it for atleast two days
no pressure may not worsen but can cause pain
the swelling is not soft.. it is hard
sry to bother you with too many basic questions
it will get soft once the infection is down
just to make sure everything is normal
Its ok, please clear your doubts completely
do you suggest anything to fasten the recovery process?
it will fasten healing
thanks for your time
have a good day.. bye
You are welcome

bye for now
