Abscess Surgery Scar On The Neck Still Oozing Pus?
Good evening, previously I had an abscess on my neck, I had surgery 3 weeks ago, the operation is in my hometown, while now I am working outside the city, still in the stage of changing the gauze, and there is still pus every time I replace it while the neural networks are about to close, which will I ask how good it is, for example, the network has closed and there is still pus?, while here it is only handled by nurses?,rnSo, thank you
Rangga should check the surgical scars to the nearest doctor to determine the cause and get treatment. Still discharge of pus indicates an ongoing infection. Usually requires treatment in the form of pus discharge and the consumption of antibiotics within a certain period of time. Bugs should not leave it for too long so that the infection does not spread and recovers faster.
The abscess itself is pus that is localized in a part of the body. Pus is formed as a result of the body's process of fighting germs that cause infection. In the neck, an abscess in the neck can be caused by infection of the lymph nodes (lymphadenitis), peritonsil abscess, infection of the dental area, injury, submandibular abscess and so on. Treatment is usually a combination of taking antibiotics and an abscess drainage procedure (removal of pus).
