Abstract

Abscess is an acquired condition seen all over the body. The clinical features of abscess are swelling, pain, redness, local temperature and tenderness. Salivary gland infection complications are uncommon. Submandibular abscess is caused when a salivary gland infection is left untreated, pus can collect and cause an abscess. Here, the commonly used treatment is incision and drainage followed by antibiotics which may have chance of re-occurrences. Hence, incision and drainage followed by the use of Pratisarana Kshara  was used as the treatment modality to cure submandibular abscess.
