Incision and Drainage (I&D) of Abscess
A skin abscess, which is often called a boil, is a bump that forms when pus collects within the tissue of the body. An abscess can show up on any place of the body, and for the most part it is harmless.
Apart from antibiotics, Incision and drainage is a minor surgical procedure to release pus or pressure built up under the skin from an abscess or a boil. It is performed by making a small incision to puncture the skin using a sterile instrument such as a sharp needle, a pointed scalpel or a lancet. This allows the pus fluid to escape by draining out through the incision.
