Carbuncle is an acute inflammatory purulent-necrotic process in the skin, which involves several hair sacs, sebaceous glands and the surrounding subcutaneous tissue, characterized by the formation of extensive abscesses.
The causes of the carbuncle are the ingress of pyogenic microbes, in particular, golden and other types of staphylococcus, streptococcus, E. coli, non-clostridial anaerobes, proteins and others under the upper layer of the skin.
Symptoms of the carbuncle
The carbuncle appears as a small inflammatory nodule with a superficial abscess, which rapidly increases in size. Often in the affected area, sharp, bursting pains disturb. The skin in this area is tense, swollen, with a crimson hue.
After some time, the skin above the carbuncle erupts in several places, several holes ("sieve") are formed, from which thick greenish-gray pus is released; dead tissue is visible in the holes. Separate holes merge, forming a large defect in the skin, through which much pus flows and dead tissue is torn away.
Body temperature rises to 40 ° C. Intoxication is present (nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, severe headache, insomnia, occasionally delirium and unconsciousness).
With large sizes, as well as with the location of the carbuncle on the face, general phenomena are especially pronounced, but quickly decline, when pus is excreted and dead tissue is rejected. After cleansing, the wound heals.
The same symptoms can be signs of different diseases, and the disease can not proceed according to the textbook. Do not try to be treated yourself - consult a doctor
