Definitions for "Abscesses"
Abscesses are inflamed areas filled with pus which are caused by bacteria from a puncture wound or a severe scratch. The surface of the wound closes up, sealing bacteria and debris inside. Lancing of the abscess may be necessary to allow pus to drain, and antibiotics may be prescribed to treat the infection.
