Furuncle is an acute purulent inflammation of the hair follicle, sebaceous gland and surrounding subcutaneous tissue.

It can develop on any part of the body that has hair, with the exception of the palms and soles, where there are no hair follicles. The predominant localization is the face, back of the head, inguinal regions, buttocks, the back surface of the forearms and hands. The most common causative agent is staphylococcus aureus.

Carbuncle - several boils, interconnected by numerous passages. The infection usually develops as a result of ingestion of Staphylococcus aureus, and can lead to significant necrosis of the skin. In the process of treatment, the patient is prescribed antibiotics, sometimes surgical intervention is required.

Symptoms of a boil

- The disease begins with a slight tingling, changes in sensitivity (numbness) of a certain area of ​​the skin, chills and a slight increase in body temperature.

- Pain, swelling and redness of the skin appear with the formation of a dense nodule with a diameter of up to 2 cm.

- Then, in the center of this nodule, corresponding to the exit of the hair, a so-called rod (an area of ​​​​dead tissue) appears, which is gradually rejected, after which the wounded defect is cleared of pus and heals with the formation of a scar.

- With a boil in the region of the upper lip, nose, nasolabial folds and bridge of the nose, there is a high risk of infection spreading with the development of purulent meningitis and sepsis. During 1-2 days, an inflammatory infiltrate is formed. The furuncle of the face is accompanied by severe swelling, although soreness may be slight.
