Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Is this abscess on the skin near your hip or actually on the hip joint?

Hip joint abscess is a condition in which, the hip or the skin around it may be affected with infections or certain conditions that cause collection of pus in and around the hip joint. Abscess or building up of pus can occur around the hip joint or the soft tissues around it, which include ligaments, muscles and other tissues. Abscess of the hip joint can also be present over the skin surface, which can be easily visible.

Treatment of hip joint abscess, depends on the cause, location and extent of the hip abscess. To treat a hip joint abscess it is necessary to treat the infection or the condition causing hip joint abscess and manage factors related to hip joint abscess. Skin abscesses may drain or heal on their own, but may require treatment to completely cure the infection.
