Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Antibiotics will not act when there is an abscess with pus coming out. You should have an incision and drainage of the abscess and after this, the antibiotics can be effective and cure the infection.

The chest pains and swelling of feet with varicose veins are not related to this abscess. They have to be investigated separately. You should have an ECG done. This will diagnose whether your chest pain is due to a heart condition.

Take care.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
