Hot, hard shining swelling; pricking pains and dull stitches in the part; general sinking of strength.

Arsenicum [Ars]

Intolerable burning pains during the fever or when the abscess threatens to become gangrenous; pus copious, bloody, corroding, ichorous, watery, and of a putrid smell; great debility, muscular prostration, sleeplessness and restlessness.

Asafoetida [Asaf]

Abscesses discharging a colorless, serous pus, or thin, foetid ichor; violent pains in contact and great sensitiveness of the adjoining parts, intermittent pulsations in the tumor, with darting, tearing pains, some what relieved by pressure.

Baryta-carb [Bar-c]

Inflammation of the cellular tissue, passing over into suppuration; incipient suppuration of glands; boils and furuncles.

Calendula [Calend]

Induration after surgical operations, followed by suppuration; the wound looks raw and inflamed, with stinging pains, followed by throbbings, as if it would suppurate; profuse and exhausting suppuration in traumatic abscess.

Chamomilla [Cham]

Abscess very hot and painful, with clear, serous suppuration, not relieved by Arsenicum

Cocculus [Cocc]

Superficial abscess just above root of nail of right little toe, pain as if a hot iron went into it on raising foot from ground in walking.

Hepar-sulph [Hep]

Lacerating and pricking pains in the tumors; throbbing and beating in the abscess, the skin over the abscess is highly inflamed, hard, hot and swelling; pus scanty, bloody, corroding smelling like old cheese; pains worse at night and by exposure to cold.

Mercurius [Merc]

SLOWLY SUPPURATING ABSCESSES.. Burning redness of the skin, with prickling and tingling sensation; hard, hot, inflammatory swelling, pressing from within outward; pulsating pains; pus copious, bloody, corroding, thin and watery; or all these characters, but scanty.

Mezereum [Mez]

For abscesses of FIBROUS PARTS OR A TENDONS, or for abscesses arising from the abuse of Mercury.

Phosphorus [Phos]

Lymphatic abscesses, full of fistulae; callous feeling; hectic fever; pus copious and yellow.

Pulsatilla [Puls]

The abscess bleeds readily with stinging and cutting pains; bluish-red swelling (varices) in the suppurating parts, with itching, stinging and burning pains; abscesses after violent and long-continued inflammations; pus bloody or copious, greenish or yellow.

Rhus-tox [Rhus-t]

ABSCESSES OF AXILLARY OR PAROTID GLANDS, swelling painful to touch, and discharging a bloody-serous pus, with stinging and gnawing pains. Smooth, red and shining swellings, the inflamed skin being covered with little painful white vesicles.

Silicea [Sil]

It controls the suppurative process; seeming to mature processes when desired, and certainly reducing excessive suppuration to moderate limits. Pains of abscess are either burning, cutting, itching, prickling or pulsative. PUs copious or scanty, bloody brownish, corroding, gelatinous, gray or greenish, putrid, thin and watery, or yellow. After matter has been discharged, it promotes granulation and cicatrization.
