In the end, the central part of the boil becomes soft and filled with white blood cells, infection-fighting. The compound of white blood cells, bacteria and proteins known as pus. Finally the pus forms a "head", which can be open by surgery or boil
Boils and carbuncles - will warm compress
he burst. Pus, located in the tissue abscess considered. Furuncle also relates to skin abscesses.
The following types of boils:
- A boil or carbuncle. It is a skin abscess that causes staph bacteria. We boil may be one or more openings in the skin, which may be accompanied by fever or chills. The term "boil" is used for a typical boil, which is found in the hair follicle. The term "carbuncle" is used to refer to a more extensive abscess, which is a group of capillary follicles. Carbuncle can form a solidified tumor that can be felt on the skin. A condition in which there is a chronic, recurring boils, called boils or carbunculosis.
- Cystic acne. This form of abscess occurs when the channels for removing fat clogged and they formed an infection. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue than the more superficial inflammation from usual acne

. This form is characterized by skin boils on the face and most often in adolescence.
- Suppurative hidradenitis. This is a condition in which there is a lot of abscesses formed under the armpits, and often in the groin area. This is the result of inflammation of the sweat glands. This form of skin infection is difficult to treat with antibiotics alone, this usually requires a surgical procedure to remove the inflamed sweat glands to stop the infection.
- Pilonidal sinus. This is a rare form of abscess that occurs in the crease between the buttocks. Typically, this form of infection begins with a tiny infected areas of the skin where the hair grows (ie, hair follicles). From irritation as a result of direct pressure from the inflamed area eventually grows in size and becomes hard, painful and sensitive unit that delivers great discomfort when sitting. This often happens after long journeys from long sitting.
What causes boils
There are many causes of boils. Some boils can occur because of ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs - pinprick
. Others may occur due to splinters or any other foreign materials got into the skin. These boils like acne, can appear as a result of clogged pores or clogged sweat glands in which the infection occurs.
The skin is a major part of the protection of immunity from foreign materials and microbes that are alien to our body. Any break in the skin such as a cut or scar may go into an abscess

If the infection gets there.
Most simple boils treated at home. Ideally, treatment should begin as soon as you notice a boil, as earlier treatment can prevent complications.
The very first treatment for most boils - a warm compress or poultice. This procedure increases blood circulation in the area where the boil, which helps the body to better fight infection by reinforced supply of antibodies and white blood cells to the site of infection.
As long as the boil is small and hard, to open and release the pus is not recommended, even if the painful area of skin. But when a boil becomes soft and forms a "head" (ie, a small pustule), it can be opened. During this procedure, the pain can be very severe. Most small boils, which formed around these filaments, intrude themselves as swelling. In the case of large boils abscess requires opening a medical professional. Often these large boils contain several pockets of pus that must be opened and cleaned of pus.
To reduce the effect of the infection is often used antibiotics. They are particularly relevant when infecting the surrounding skin. Nevertheless, antibiotics are not needed for the treatment of all kinds boils. In fact, it is difficult to penetrate the wall run up area of the skin and often they do not bring any effect, if not to resort to surgery.
Who is most susceptible to the appearance of boils
Any person may appear a boil. However, people with certain medical conditions or methods of treatment that weaken the immune system (the natural defense system against foreign materials and microbes), are more prone to the appearance of their boils. Among the diseases that weaken the immune system, diseases such as diabetes and renal failure. Such diseases where there is a violation of antibody (as with antibody deficiency syndrome) and the immune system have deficiencies, may also increase the tendency to the appearance of boils.
Many medications can suppress the immune system and increase the risk of boils. These include drugs cortisone (prednisone and prednisolone) and drugs for chemotherapy.
