What are possible meanings for dreams of abscesses?
Dreaming about an abscess suggests a loss, something you will miss like a tooth. See: Teeth
It can symbolize something that’s been held onto for too long. It’s festering.
It can symbolize defect of character, or negativity. Negativity festers and causes pain.
An abscess is a wound and dreams can use a wound to the body to symbolize a wound to the psyche. The characteristics of the dream wound define the symbolism. An abscess is an infection. So then the question is, what’s infecting you? What’s brewing beneath the surface? See: Infecting, Wounds
An abscess in the mouth can symbolize an inarticulate pain—the mouth is used to communicate, and an abscess is painful, so the ideas connect to create symbolism. It can symbolize using words to wound. See: Mouths
It can symbolize the sort of pain that comes from the deepest depths of a person; for example, from the loss of a cherished loved one, or existential angst. See: Pain
It can mean that an illness of the mind or body is passing, or a time of pain or suffering soon will be over. It’s come to the surface, and now you can be rid of it. See: Illness
An abscess can symbolize disgust with the body and its functions, such as defecation and urination. See: Excrement
A body covered in abscesses can symbolize fear of loss of material wealth or possessions. Or think of it as the many self-wounds that develop from excessive self-criticism, or self-hatred. It’s a picture of how you feel.

Dream about Funnel Cloud
Last night I had a dream I was looking out my window and noticed grey skies and a funnel cloud forming close by. I didn’t stay to watch what would happen, I immediately went downstairs first floor, not basement cause I don’t have one) to the safest place I could find which happened to be in my pantry. I could get into it but wanted to clear some stuff out so my dog and I could fit in there more comfortably. I did not witness any destruction as the dream ended when my dog and I were inside, door still open as I still removing stuff out of the pantry.
the feeling I had seeing the cloud was one of terror and I was running out of time and I would be unable to avoid getting hit. However, i never saw a full tornado forming and did not experience it hitting my house.
Also, my dog, my best friend has been fighting so hard for 5 months with a terminal illness. I have been fighting along side him- Every. Single. Day. My life has been about him 24-7- and of course I love to spend as much time with him as possible and it’s kind of always been this way since i got him 9 years ago. His my buddy. However, the emotional toll of medication administration daily (via syringe) and making sure he’s comfortable is a daily struggle. He is worth everything and all the worry and stress and money and I gladly do this for him.
I have been advocating for tooth and abscess removal for months to relieve his pain, but no one will do it. I feel like this is an unattainable task to complete successfully. I have been feeling defeated and that the veterinary system has failed us. We have one last chance with a certified vet dentist tomorrow. We have one more fight to fight tomorrow and I believe this is the biggest reason for the dream.

had a dream that i basically took a dump from my forehead
i used to have some bad acne on my face and i still get pimples now and then irl. in my dream last night, i had a few pesky ones and the largest was on the right side of my forehead. it wasn't even that big but i decided i'd try popping it by just pressing on the skin around it. it surprised me by producing a huge lump of uh... 'substance' that looked pretty fecal. that wasn't even the end of it. when i pressed again, i basically had a bowel movement come out. i was shocked there could have been so much crap under my skin, considering it wasn't even an abscess or anything and my face had looked pretty okay before popping it. even after getting it all out, my forehead still looked about the same.
needless to say i was really really grossed out.

A Tube Of Spiders In My Skin
I had a dream last night that I had this large oblong lump on my skin, it seemed to have a head and I thought it was an abscess or something so I squeezed it and to my surprise a glass cylinder came out filled with a bunch of spiders. I accidentally opened it upon expecting it and they started to spill out so I got scared and threw the tube into the pond next to the house I was at. I remember having this deep feeling of betrayal in the dream like someone close to me had done this to me (didn't know who, in the dream) and feeling regretful about throwing it away because it could have been used as evidence. I know there was more but that is all I can remember from this dream. Just wanted to share, as this dream was one of the more peculiar ones I'd ever had and it left me wondering what kind of meaning it may have to dream such things..

Recovery and Rats
I dreamed that I was at some sort of 12 step recovery meeting with a lot of friendly people and we were all doing art. The group was talking about someone dying (happens a lot) of a person I was aquatinted with pretty well a few years ago and telling stories that I knew were fabricated or being elaborated on and was getting annoyed.
Someone was draining a human abscess randomly.
I left and found my roommates dog near a box of new born puppies or kittens- small critters. I was trying to see if there was a mom in the box and there were all sized of early new born pups or kittens, bunnies, little pink things in there, and something latched on my finger to nurse and I pulled it out of the covers and it was an adorable black rat that was friendly and purring. Got on my shoulder and played in my hair and the group turned and watched me.
Real life: I’m already sober/ been heavily involved in recovery for years. BUT I had some bad dating moves in the rooms- one of which resulted in a stalker ex bf. Also worked in treatment- transitioned and got a normal job with people that are sober. But recently I deleted all the sober groups and recovery acquaintances from social media- like 600 of them. Don’t go to meetings anymore mainly because the weirdo stalker and kinda giving up a whole group because of a handful of bad apples/ generally tired of the same old song and dance.
I also love animals. The rat was really sweet and amazing!
What do you think it means?
