ABSCESS : Can you advice what this may be and what is the proper treatment?

Hi, I am 21 years of age and for about three years now I have been noticing some lumps on my labia mijora. They are usually small in appearance but they feel very large. The areas where they appear usually become very sensitive to touch, when I sit and sometimes when I walk. It feels like there is something solid under the skin. Many occasions I have simply squeezed out yellow fluids and blood out of them though it is very painful. Can you advice what this may be and what is the proper treatment. Is this going to continue, since it has not stopped for quite some time? Please advice. Thanks

Hi,they could be some infected cyst.When ever they are infected they increase in size and as you say you squeeze them out they reduce in size.Please get an examination done by your gynecologist and take proper treatment.You may need a course of antibiotics in the initial period.bye.

welcome to healthcare magic,
it is simply a bartholin cyst.it causes mild discomfort.it does not produce pain unless considerably large and get infected.Redness of sarrounding area,significant pain and discharge of frank pus suggest infection.Consult a gynaecologist nearby and get treated.Usual mode of treatment is marsupialisation of cyst/abcess and a course of antibiotic.

My sister suffers from a kind of abscess at her backside, left above her coccyx. It is inflammatory and dolorous. She tried to make an incision by herself but it is not superficial enough. It is estimated 1,5x1,5cm. Today she went to see a dermatologist. He told her that he thinks it is more cystic than an abscess. he did not do an ultrasound of it. He does not want to make an incision but told her to take antibiotics (clindamycin 600mg 3 times a day). I am wondering whether this is the right form of treatment. what do you think?

His appt is 3/13/14. He should have been seen months ago but appt was rescheduled. My concern is I read online that liver abcesses can be fatal. Please advice. ckei

Hi Doc, During my 7th month Pregnnancy, my palm and sole suddenly started itching and then it spread onto my whole body. Itching used to aggravate at night. For 3-4 days it continued. I consulted my doc, he gave me Calamine lotion along with Actibile 500 mg (before meal). As I controlled my food intake (avoiding red meat and oily stuff), it reduced automatically. Do I still need to continue the tablet. Also, since most of the time I forget to take the tab before meal, I have it with my folic acid tab after meal. Will it have any bad impact on the baby?? Thanks, Sangs.

Hi, I am 21 and male and have had eczema since birth. The problem I am having is with pigmentation on my abdominal area. The skin on my stomach is darker than the rest of my skin and LOOKS dirty however it is not dirt and seems to be in the skin. I have had this problem for over a year now and it varies in degrees of severity. The skin also sometimes looks like it has a shiny film over it. My skin does get very dry at times and this has lead me to wonder if the discolouration is due to a build up of dead dry skin cells, I have tried exfoliation but my eczema does not respond well to this. Also I have tried keeping the area well moisturised using diprobase and eucerin (containing urea) which helps to reduce the appearance after application but always comes back. I also thought this problem might be really mild stretch marks but dont know if this is likely?? I am really confused by this problem and would appreciate your expertise. Thanks
