Boil below abdomen of about half inch. What treatment to take? - Online Doctor Chats
Please go ahead with your query
Are you with me?
Hello Doctor, Assalamu Alaikum. My name is XXXX and I'm a corporate manager in a MNC.
Yes, I'm with you.
Typing my query now.
For the past two days, I had a boil below my abdomen its about half ince
yesterday I started feeling pain and some puss came out
I've had a pilonidal sinus surgery two years back.. so, I'm just concerned that this boil is not a similar type of skin infection
Can you please let me know your thoughts?
Where exactly is the boil when you say below abdomen
Is it near to the penis?
its in the pubic area, right near to the penis
above it or on the scrotum?
above it, not on the scrotum
It is not similar to pilonidal sinu
ok, so how do you suggest me to proceed?
If it is near to an inch it is likely to be more than it and needs to check if it is an abscess
You can fix an appnt with our team
We can fix it in your area
ok, it is near to an inch but the puss or blood has mostly drained out..
the infection is still there I believe though
so, how does fixing the appointment work?
like, charges, timing, and when you say my place, what doest it mean?
It is free for you
If yu place a request for an appnt with a surgeon
they call and find out your area in the city
and search for a surgeon near you place and fix the appnt
ok sure, that works and if the boil goes away till the appoint then I can cancel it. Correct?
and make sure that the area is dry
and do not wear undergarments at night
true, I am usually very health conscious but the past couple of days due to extra work at office I've been a little careless in terms of my eating and sleeping habits
also, I haven't been drinking enough water I guess.
That should go off then
so, if I just say soframycin cream at the medical store I should get it right?
so, do you suggest me to try this cream for a couple of days and then seek an appointment or do you suggest to me to take an appointment right away?
You continue the cream
and seek appnt as well
ok sure, I will do that then
how do I apply for an appointment?
You can go back to dashboard and click fix appnt
and it is self explanatory from there
alright, I will do that then. Do you suggest any tablets apart from the cream or just the cream should do?
cream should be it
ok, thank you doctor. Nice talking to you. Have a great evening!
Bye for now
