An abscess is a collection of pus that is formed within
the body due to a bacterial or any microbial infection. Areas around the abscess become red, swollen
and warm. When pressed they feel like a fluid.
Abscesses are always serious because the infection may
spread to other parts of the body.
It may be a gum abscess or a tooth related abscess. For
the treatment, the exact cause and nature of the abscess or cyst is mandatory.
Xerostomia, more commonly known as dry mouth, is not a
disease in itself. These conditions cause saliva production to decrease or stop. Some common causes
- A side effect of medicine - Hundreds of drugs can cause dry mouth. These include pain relievers
and medicines for depression, cold symptoms, muscle spasms and allergies.
- Medicines are the most common cause of xerostomia. Older people often take many medicines, including
those most likely to cause dry mouth. Medicines for diabetes, parkinsons disease and sjogrens
syndrome are common causes for this condition.
- A complication of diseases and infections - Dry mouth occurs more often among people with certain
diseases. They include diabetes, anemia, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood
pressure and HIV infection. Xerostomia also occurs with Sjögren’s syndrome. In this disease,
the body’s antibodies attack the salivary and tear glands. Some viral infections, such as
mumps, also affect saliva production and cause xerostomia.
- Dehydration - Any condition that leads to loss of body fluids can also cause xerostomia. These
conditions include fever, excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, blood loss or loss of water
through the skin after a burn.
- Radiation therapy - Xerostomia is a common side effect of radiation therapy to treat cancers
in the head and neck.
- Surgical removal of the salivary glands - If a mass develops in a salivary gland, surgical removal
of the gland may be recommended.
Cold sores, sometimes called fever blisters, are groups
of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth.
Cold sores and fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex
virus type 1 (HSV-1).
Stress also can lead to a cold sore outbreak. This includes
mental and emotional stress, as well as dental treatment, illness, trauma to the lips or sun exposure.

- Diseases that affect the whole body, particularly central nervous system disorders or autoimmune
diseases such as lupus
- Tetanus (lockjaw)
- Trismus often develops slowly. For example, it can occur in someone who is receiving radiation.
For this reason, it may go unnoticed for some time. Trismus also can develop suddenly.
- An example would be someone who is in a car accident and has trauma to the jaw.
- In certain cases, if trismus is left untreated, problems with swallowing, speech and oral hygiene
