An abscess is a buildup of fluid, commonly known as pus, which contains a mixture of living and dead white blood cells, dead tissue, bacteria or other foreign substances. It results from an attempt by your body’s immune system to fight infection caused by bacteria, parasites or foreign substances.
Treatments typically include drainage and antibiotics. When appropriate, the fluid may be sent to a lab and tested to determine what germ may be causing the abscess.
