Simple Causes Of Boils. by tobeetoe(m): 8:22am On Jun 26, 2015
Boil, also called furuncles, are painful, red
lumps filled with pus on the skin above
infected hair follicles. When boils appear in a
group, they are called a carbuncle.
Boils are painful as they get bigger, before
bursting on their own after some days or
weeks.
The most common places for boils to appear
are on the face , neck, armpits, shoulders and
buttocks. When a boil forms on the eyelid, it is
called a stye.
Causes of boils
Most boils are caused by a germ
(staphylococcal bacteria). This germ enters
the body through tiny nicks or cuts in the skin
or can travel down the hair to the follicle.
Some health problems make people more
susceptible to skin infections, including:
- Diabetes.
- Problems with the immune system.
- Poor nutrition.
- Poor hygiene.
- Exposure to harsh chemicals that irritate the
skin.
