An abscess is a localized collection of pus that forms within tissues, organs, or spaces in the body from infection, inflammation, or the body’s immune response to foreign substances. Abscesses can occur in various parts of the body and may vary in size from small and barely noticeable to large and painful. Skin abscesses may look red and swollen.
