Drainage Of Pus

If an abscess or pimple cannot be popped with light pressure, do not force it. Draining pus should always be done by a medical professional with sterilized equipment. Infection or scarring can occur if you attempt to drain pus pockets on your own. Schedule a visit at a nearby Carbon Health.
Pus-like drainage is usually a sign of an infection. The drainage may be white, yellow, green, or brown, and may be thick or thin depending on the underlying cause which can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, foreign objects, or inflammatory conditions.
