Causes

There are several reasons that you may be dealing with an abscess or wound. This is an infection in your skin when areas such as the sweat or oil glands become blocked. It traps bacteria underneath the skin and causes inflammation and infection. It is important to have it properly drained and cleaned to prevent further issues.

Incision and Drainage

Why is it important to have this drained? Why can’t you take antibiotics? While medications will work on the bacteria, it is only effective in the bloodstream to the tissue. When there’s an abscess, it means that the bacteria are actually in a pocket and trapped. Draining the infection will help you to heal and relieve the pain.
