However spread of an infection also often meets from the inflammation center (a furuncle or an abscess). Also abscess can arise owing to suppuration of a hematoma, a cyst, and after careless introduction of injections to soft tissues. One of origins of abscesses is lymphogenous innidiation of a purulent infection.

After drainage of the abscess, the doctor conducts examination of the inflamed site to be convinced that there is no pus in a wound any more. The remained particles of purulent masses delete by means of saline solutions. In certain cases, into the trained site insert the tampon made of a sterile gauze. Removal of a tampon is made through one - two days. For acceleration of process of healing heat and the raised provision of an affected area of a body is recommended.

If abscess manages to be drained completely, then antibacterial therapy is, as a rule, not necessary. At local spread of an infection, or at the abscess located in an average or upper part of the face, prescription of antibiotics is extremely necessary as there is a risk of hit  of disease-producing bacteria in a brain. The antibiotics sensitive to staphylococcus and to streptococci are used.

Post-surgical treatment includes so-called tactics on fight against a contagium, reduction of intoxication of an organism and  strengthening of immune systems of an organism.
