Giant Face Abscess

this patient had a slow growth of an abscess (boil, cyst, risin) over the last 2 weeks, but over the last 2 days became much worse. The location is very scary as the carotid artery is very close. In this video we show the drainage and discuss why is this abscess different (at least in location) from others that we have done.

The procedure proved to be more successful than I would have thought initially. Then the abscess itself was irrigated and NOT packed. I do NOT routinely pack abscess anymore as they increase pain, and decrease healing.

We did culture this abscess and treated the patient with Bactrim DS (double dose for at least 1 week). Pain medicines were given to be used as needed for pain.
