Has anyone ever had an abscess while pregnant? I believe I have one. Can it harm baby? Should I go to doctor right away?

Thanks for using the forum.

If you have an abscess I would recommend seeing your doctor. I am not sure where you believe the abscess is. The doctor can examine you and determine if you need any treatment, make sure the doctor is aware of your pregnancy if any medication or treatment is ordered.

I hope this helps.
