An abscess refers to an accumulation of pus anywhere on the body. The most common body areas where abscess occur are the face, armpits, female breast (especially during lactation), rectum, and on the extremities (fingers and toes). Abscess is usually caused by bacterial, fungal, or viral infection, and can also be due to parasites.
Symptoms of abscess include swelling, tenderness, or redness (often with a sensation of being hot to the touch) in and around the infected area. A severe abscess can cause fever, cellulitis, (buildup of cellulite due to inflammation of cellular tissue associated with pus formation), fatigue, weight loss, chills, abnormal functioning depending on the area affected or, at worst, blood infection and rupture. Incomplete drainage may result in fibrous wall with calcium accumulation resulting in a hardened mass.
Abscesses are conventionally treated with antibiotics. However, continual use of antibiotics often times only gives temporary relief and in fact can generate a rebound effect of symptoms or undesirable side-effects. Some infectious bacteria that were once treatable are stronger and often deadly. Diarrhea, abdominal pain, severe inflammation of the colon (colitis), irritable bowel syndrome, skin problems, fever, elevated white blood cell count, weak immune system, vomiting, dehydration, potassium deficiencies, allergies, colon perforation, bad breath, excess stomach gas, yeast problems, nutritional deficiencies and constipation are just some of the many side effects and problems linked to antibiotics.
