  • An abscess is a painful, pus-filled lump that can develop on any part of your body. It is typically caused by a bacterial infection, where the body's immune system sends white blood cells to the infected area, leading to the accumulation of pus. Abscesses can occur in various locations, such as the skin, mouth, or deeper tissues and organs.

    When an abscess forms, it can cause significant discomfort and disrupt your daily activities.

    Symptoms of an abscess

    • Redness and swelling at the affected site
    • A warm sensation around the lump
    • Severe pain and tenderness
    • Fever and chills if the infection spreads
    • Fatigue and a general feeling of being unwell

    If you suspect you have an abscess, it's crucial to seek medical attention promptly.

    The Abscess Drainage Process

    Abscess drainage is a common procedure performed to relieve pain and prevent the spread of infection. During this procedure, a healthcare professional makes a small incision in the abscess to allow the pus to drain out. This helps reduce inflammation and promotes healing. In some cases, a drainage tube may be inserted to keep the area open and ensure complete drainage.
