Abscess Treatment | Abscess Cure

What is an Abscess:

An abscess is a local accumulation of pus. Pus is a thick fluid that usually contains white blood cells, dead tissue and bacteria (germs). It can occur almost anywhere on or in the body, but it most frequently occurs on the skin and on the gums of the mouth. Abscesses can be very tender and painful and are marked by inflammation, swelling, heat, redness, and often fever.


An abscess occurs when the body tries to fight an infection within the tissues of the body, sending white blood cells to fight further infection. The blood cells collect around the site of infection, accumulating to form pus. Abscesses frequently form on the skin, the most commonly known type is a boil. Inside the body, abscesses can be much more serious, causing damage to tissues and organs.

Abscess Symptoms:

The symptoms of an abscess depend on where it develops in your body.

If you have a skin abscess, you may have the following symptoms.

• A smooth swelling under your skin that can feel hard or firm
• Tenderness in the affected area
Pain, warmth and redness (erythema) in the affected area
• An open wound or closed sore
Pus in the affected area that appears white or yellow or may drain from the affected area
• A high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or above
• Chills


Abscess Causes:

Abscesses may be caused by many different bacteria, fungi, or protozoans, which are kinds of disease causing microbes. Abscesses result from infections that are or become localized or confined to one part of the body, as opposed to infections that spread throughout the body.


Abscess Remedies:

* Drink adequate quantity of water so that the bad toxins can be removed properly and there will be proper healing of abscess.

* If you have an abscess, there are some very effective basic steps you can take to treat it with home remedies.

* Take a slice of peeled potato(about 1 in. thick) and place it over the abscess or boil and secure it there with tape. Leave it on there for a couple hours and it will pull the poison out. You can see the poisons on the potato.

* Apply antibiotic ointment once the pus has drained, and bandage the abscess. Bacitracin ointment is commonly used as a home remedy and works well to treat lanced abscesses.

* Eat plenty of steamed leafy green vegetables to ensure that you are taking proper quantity of vitamins and minerals needed for healing.

* Apply a cloth soaked in one part lobelia and three parts mullein in warm water to bring the affected area to a head. Puncture lightly with a sterilized needle, and wash gently. Garlic oil will help defend against infection. Apply vitamin E oil twice a day to speed the healing process.

* Use heat, the number one home remedy to treat abscesses, to bring the abscess to a head. Place a clean, warm face cloth over the boil for 20 minutes at least three times a day. Rotate face cloths to maintain consistent heat. Warm compresses will bring the abscess to a head.

* 3o drop echinacea tincture 6o drop.a yerba mania tincture 1 cup warm water. Combine all the ingredients. Take up to five times per day to stimulate the immune system and help eliminate the infection.

* 1 to 2 teaspoons barberries 1 tablespoon white oak bark 1 teaspoon echinacea root 1 teaspoon granulated Oregon grape root 2 cups boiling water. Combine the herbs in a glass container. Pour the boiling water over the herbs and soak for 3 to 4 hours; strain. Use three times a day as a wash. If you are using this tea to treat a gum abscess, be sure to swish the liquid around in your mouth for several minutes before spitting it out.

* Thick slices of raw onion can be placed on the boil and covered with a cloth. The onion should be replaced every three hours until the abscess comes to a head and bursts,

* Avoid all fried foods and all the food stuffs which contain refined sugar as these slow down healing process.

* Keeping the skin clean, eating a proper diet, and getting regular exercise can also help treat and prevent skin abscesses. Each of these actions helps keep the immune system strong, improving its ability to fend off infections or illnesses that may lead to skin abscesses.
