Abscess is pus collection in tissues, it is a kind of defensive response of body, so that infection may not spread to other part of body, so it is localized a capsule or wall. Here is a big abscess on neck, patient came to us with applied lime over it, we asked to wash it. Abscess are treated by I&D also known as clinical lancing, do part preparation, clean the skin with normal saline, spirit, betadiene. Give incision, and drain the cavity completely, insert finger and break all loculi, so hidden pus can be drained. Pressure is applied with both hands and drain the pus so that body has to fight against less infection. Clean the cavity by flushing it with normal saline, hydrogen per oxide, betadiene etc. Put drain or do packaging with guaze piece and give broad spectrum antiobiotics.
