But the same he was only given medicine .. And even then there was no reaction whatsoever still swollen … Well I decided to ultrasound my child and the results in the absence of hypoechoic lesions, thick-walled, relatively tense boundaries, irregular surfaces, uk1 , 84×1.87 in the left submandibular subcutaneous. – Doppler examination. Yasculsrisasi around the lesion increases. And Dr. Said there was pus in the swelling … I wonder what the doctor’s advice was … Waiting for a drug reaction or immediately operated on
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Based on the results of your child's ultrasound examination and information from the radiologist, the possibility of swelling that appears on your child's neck is an abscess under the skin. An abscess is a bag filled with pus that occurs due to a bacterial infection. You should bring the results of the radiological examination back to the surgeon who examined your child beforehand. The surgeon will consider the incision and drainage of the abscess to remove pus in the lump and provide antibiotics to treat the infection. Generally abscess will not heal by giving antibiotics alone. To help speed up the maturation of the abscess, you can compress the lump with a warm compress.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
