I suffered what I believed it was a peritonsillar abscess during 4 days a month ago. I didn't take any medicine except some peroxide gargles. I was going to see a doctor next morning but I woke up at dawn when I felt something in my mouth and I realized that the abscess has burst and I spewed pus and blood, and I felt complete relief.
I'm 70 years old but I had the same condition when I was 28. That time the doctor prescribed antibiotics for a week but these didn't work, and the doctor had no choice but to cut w/. a scalpel and drain the pus. I felt exactly the same relief.
My question is what caused this bursting and what are the probabilities that this happens normally?
