Boils Information and Treatment

Boil or furuncle is a skin disease caused by the inflammation of hair follicles , thus resulting in the localized accumulation of pus and dead tissues. Boils usually start as red, tender lumps. After 4-7 days, the lump starts turning white as pus collects under the skin. The most common places for boils to appear are on the face, neck, armpits, shoulders, and buttocks. When one forms on the eyelid, it is called a sty. If several boils appear in a group, this is a more serious type of infection called a carbuncle. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells that the body sends from the blood stream to eradicate the infection. This collection of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin.

Boils is a common skin disorder and in most cases are not due to anything wrong with the blood. A milder version of boils is folliculitis. This is an infection of hair follicles, usually with Staph bacteria. These often itch more than hurt. The appearance is similar to acne pustules. It is also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. The most common cause of infection are germs called staphylococci. These germs already exist on the skin and in the nose of some people without causing any problems. Often, several or many boils may develop together. This is known as folliculitis. Boils often occur in places where clothing catches on the skin.
