What will happen if the pus is not drained out of an abscess? Will it stay there forever or will the body get rid of it automatically?

    Good question, not enough time to answer adequately at the moment, but I edited it to take the "I" out - - you should NOT be draining your own abscesses, ever. There are all sorts of harm you can cause if not done properly (from local infection to potentially fatal septicemia) – DoctorWhom Sep 6 '17 at 7:49

    It's going to depend a lot on where the abscess is. – Carey Gregory Sep 6 '17 at 17:37
