Abscesses are not only a cosmetic skin issue, but they can also become highly problematic and painful, so their removal is necessary and for that, Renew Skin & Health Clinic ensures the best treatment that will help people in Birmingham get rid of them while also achieving great cosmetic results.

When bacteria enter the body, the immune system has an immediate response trying to fight the infection caused, the results being the an inflammation or an abscess which is a tender mass containing puss and debris, the tissue swelling being usually surrounded by a pink or deep red-colored area. Abscesses are painful and warm to touch, appearing anywhere on your body, the most common areas being the armpits, areas around the anus and vagina, the base of the spine, and in your groin area. Bacteria is not the only factor that causes abscesses, as inflammation around a hair follicle, obstruction of oil glands or sweat glands, minor breaks or punctures of the skin can also lead to the appearance of abscesses on your body.

The pain in the abscesses is caused by the pressure and inflammation of the liquefied dead cells, bacteria and other debris inside the swelling, which gradually begins to grow, inflaming the surrounding tissues. People dealing with weakened immune systems are more prone to develop abscesses on their bodies than the others.

Abscesses become painful in time, tender and warm to touch as mentioned above, starting to “point” and come to a head protruding the skin. These skin growths will worsen in time without care, the infection spreading to the tissues underneath the skin and into your bloodstream, and when this happens, you will start to develop fever and feel ill. You should try to prevent this, by seeing a GP or a dermatologist, who can offer you a consultation and a skin examination to determine the cause and set an accurate diagnosis, based on which, he/she will recommend an appropriate abscess removal treatment.

At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our private dermatologists, depending on the degree of severity of the abscess, usually recommend an abscess drainage treatment which is performed with the help of minor surgery. The procedure is almost painless, as we use local anesthetics, the targeted area is opened surgically and the puss and debris within the abscess are drained, after which a bandage is applied. The specialist will also provide the patients with instructions about home care, as this is a same day treatment procedure, so you can leave the clinic immediately after the procedure. Another positive aspect of the abscess drainage treatment is that most patients start to feel better immediately after the procedure. All sores will heal in 10-14 days and the scarring is minimal.
