Boil Treatment, Causes, and Symptoms
Chronic Boils are a sometimes painful health condition characterized by infections that take the form of a pus-filled abscess. Signs and symptoms of a boil include swollen, painful, and inflamed skin accompanied by a large, often red, lump. While some people may experience only one boil on their face or body, chronic boils are often the symptom of a misdiagnosed condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS).). HS is a non-contagious, recurrent skin health condition; typically manifesting as a progression from single boil-like, pus-filled abscesses, or hard sebaceous lumps, to painful, deep-seated, often inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage (suppuration) involving significant scarring. HS is painful, often misdiagnosed, it is difficult-to-treat and currently there is no known cure.
CAUSES OF BOILS
Typically, boils are caused when the area around a hair follicle becomes congested with a build up of staphylococcal bacteria. Think of it as an infection that’s trapped in one part of the body. Pus gets trapped underneath the skin and around the hair follicle, resulting in an infection that looks like a large red lump. Eventually, pus may begin to ooze out of the boil. Boils may be caused by poor health, poor nutrition, or bad hygiene, skin contact with harsh chemicals, or a weak immune system. Those with health problems like diabetes are often at a higher risk of developing skin infections like acne, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, or boils.
TREATMENTS FOR BOILS
For treatment of boils at home, applying warm water can alleviate pain and bring the pus to the surface. Applying a warm wash cloth will often do the trick and the boil will naturally burst likely within about ten days with continued treatment. Though it may be tempting, popping the boil with a needle is not the best treatment option, as it could cause infection. Once the boil drains naturally, applying a medicated boil cream or antibiotics to the body or face can help along with a bandage. If you develop a fever or develop additional boils, you may want to see a doctor about possible treatment options such as antibiotics.
