I have a abscess on the top of my bum under my tail bone area. Hurts to sit and walk. First one I got when I was pregnant all I could do is put hot water on it and wait. My friend poked it with a needle some days to help drain it when it was a white bubble. But now I dont live with her and I got it again its wicked redish brown hard and starting to have white on top so tonight im putting A&D ointment on it with white vinager! To try and see if that works so mh boyfriend dosnt have to use a needle and help get puss out.
I also got to take extra pain relief since thats all I got and my docter told me she cant do nothing for it so hopefully this works tonight!!

I have old (but not that old) cephelaxin and amoxicillin i will try for my abscess. Mine is on my arm, warm to the touch and i feel subqutanious fluid. I hope some of these techniques work. The last thing i want to do is lance my own lump. Anyway. My thought was maybe look around for old antibiotics used for previous infection if u are worried enough that it might have pus/infection. Obviously drs visit is best but i have a job so no free health care.

anal abscess
I just read this website and it is such a wonder that I did. It's the Christmas season and I think this website is the Santa Claus to me, a 47 year old woman with ulceratic colitis, which is under control by my VSL #3 and Psyllum remedy. however I ate a big meal right before Christmas and got an anal abscess the right next day. My doctor is on vacation and I am just too embarrassed to go to the emergency room to let a stranger (although a kind-hearted stranger, without a doubt) to look at my butt. I almost thought about lance it myself, but I am such a coward and the little touch of the sharp edge on my skin freaked me out. So here I am at 8 o'clock today I found this website and it is a life saver to me. I am doing exactly the tea tree oil + turmeric+baking powder ( I have no baking soda)paste right now. As soon as I applied, it feels instantly better. I am waiting to see the result now. Thank you Santa Claus. From now on, I will share my natural remedy experience with others too, hoping that I can bring some cure to somebody in need. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can hardly type since the pungent smell is making me a little dizzy.

Never use black salve! It is very dangerous to use. Google it and look at the pictures of what people have gone thru while using it.

I don't get abscesses often but they do seem to appear when I am pregnant. The first popped on its own before I even knew what it was during my last pregnancy. After it went away I didn't think about them again until I began getting them this pregnancy. I had one of the extremely painful, anal type. I couldn't walk or e in sit. Any movement caused me pain and it just continued to grow until it got to be the size of a golf ball. After trying several different methods over the weekend and deciding to go to the hospital on Monday if it didn't drain on its own, I decided to try one last method. I made some of the paste from Epsom salt and hydrogen peroxide and my husband helped me apply it and cover it with gauze. Within about an hour I could feel it slowly begin to drain. I went to sleep and woke up a couple hours later to it completely open, draining quickly, and the gauze and my underwear soaked in blood and pus. After cleaning up, I realized the sore was already down to half its size. After going back to sleep and then waking up this morning it is about 95% drained and feeling enormously better. This stuff will be my go to from now on! I wish I had tried it first.

Ok, so I have had a very deep arm abscess for about a month. I have an illness & part of my treatment is to give myself steroid injections every now & then. Well unfortunately my illness also compromises my immune system so I'm prone to abscesses. I was afraid that since it was in the muscle, not just a hair follicle, that topical treatments just simple would not work. Well I was wrong. I put a liberal amount of calmoseptine ointment on my arm & then covered it with gauze. After about 19hrs it came to a head & I could tell it was almost there. So I took a pain pill & got a syringe & popped it. Now the the ointment also has a numbing agent which is extremely helpful! It has more to go, but I'm so happy that the pain is almost gone. After doing this u have to keep the area clean & covered because it'll continue to drain. Also antibiotics r a must.
Other things that work r raw potato & bacon. The bacon is great for a really deep abscess

this helped me so much? basically cut the side of a tomato so it looks a bit like this shape (| and press it against the abcess. depending on whether you have any of the skin open it might sting a bit, but it will drain it and bring it to a head so fast! my entire undereye was swollen and puffed up with red streaks, i put a tomato on it for about 30 minutes and didnt wash the juice off over night and its almost 100% gone. totally worth it; helps with acne too! make sure your tomato is fresh and red though.

I have been back and forth, for years, to the ER for I&D of my abscesses under my arms.I've also had surgery on one of my arm pits for it! I've been experimenting with essential oils, lavender, tea tree oil, eucalyptus and peppermint oil. By far, the best is peppermint!! I heat up water for warm compress and add few drops of peppermint oil. I feel relief IMMEDIATELY! Any inflammation and pain is gone. I do this each time I feel an abscess coming in, it ALWAYS works! Hope this helps!! Good luck! :-)
