Abscess

Definition:

An abscess is a localized collection of pus that forms within tissues of the body due to infection, inflammation, or the presence of foreign substances. It's often characterized by swelling, pain, redness, and warmth at the affected site.

Types :
  • Skin Abscess: Develops on the surface of the skin, often caused by bacteria entering through cuts or wounds.
  • Internal Abscess: Forms within the body, affecting organs or deeper tissues. Examples include dental abscesses, liver abscesses, and brain abscesses.
Causes :
  • Abscesses are typically caused by bacterial infections, most commonly Staphylococcus aureus. Inflammation and the immune system's response lead to the accumulation of pus.
Symptoms:
  • Pain, tenderness, and swelling at the site
  • Redness and warmth around the area
  • Pus or fluid drainage
  • Fever and chills
  • Fatigue and discomfort
Diagnosis:
  • A healthcare provider diagnoses abscesses through physical examination, review of symptoms, and sometimes imaging tests like ultrasound or MRI to assess the extent of the infection and pus accumulation.
Risk Factors:
  • Weakened immune system
  • Poor hygiene
  • Diabetes
  • Skin conditions like folliculitis
  • Chronic illnesses
  • IV drug use
  • Recent surgery or medical procedures
Preventions:
  • Maintain good hygiene
  • Treat underlying skin conditions promptly
  • Practice proper wound care

  • Silicea: When the abscess is slow to heal, and pus is not easily discharged
