Incision and Drainage of small abscesses
Abscesses are collections of infected material which can be difficult for your body to remove. Depending on the site and size of the collection, a day procedure may be performed to drain and clean the collection of infected material. A swab may be taken and sent to a laboratory to confirm the species of bacteria causing the infection, this may take up to a week for results. Oral antibiotics may be given after the procedure to prevent secondary infection and promote wound healing. Larger and deeper abscesses may require treatment at a tertiary hospital.
