Hello dear,
Thanks for the query. Management for your abscess will depend on
1)Size of abscess
3)cause for the abscess
If it is small you can safely take antibiotics and paracetamol for pain relief. Its better you consult a gynaecologist.
Hope I answered your question, Kindly reply me if you have any further queries or any comments. I will be very happy to help you.
