What Causes Boils And Abscesses?

Boils and abscesses are skin conditions caused by bacterial infections. They often develop when hair follicles or oil glands become infected with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, leading to the formation of painful, swollen bumps filled with pus. These infections can occur anywhere on the body and may vary in size. In some cases, abscess boils may be the result of an STD/STI.

While anyone can develop abscess boils, factors like genetics, underlying health conditions, and lifestyle can all contribute. Issues such as poor hygiene or close contact with someone else who has abscess boils can all play a part as well.

Symptoms Of Boils And Abscesses

Abscess boils are characterized by a range of distinctive symptoms, each signaling the possible presence of an underlying bacterial infection. These symptoms can include:

Raised Lump On Skin

The primary sign of abscess boils is a raised lump on the skin, often accompanied by redness, inflammation, and pus accumulation. The lump’s size may vary and can cause discomfort.

Redness and Swelling

The infected area surrounding the boil or abscess typically becomes red and swollen due to the body’s immune response. The affected area may feel tender and warm to the touch due to inflammation.

Pain and Tenderness

Abscess boils can cause varying degrees of pain and tenderness. As they grow, discomfort intensifies, making movements or pressure on the area painful. Pressure buildup from pus and inflammation contributes to the pain.

Localized Heat

The presence of abscess boils can trigger increased blood flow to the area, leading to localized warmth. This warmth is a response to infection and can help differentiate abscesses and boils from other skin problems.

Fever and Fatigue

Sometimes, if the infection is spreading, you may get a fever. You may also experience feelings of fatigue or weakness. These things together might mean the infection is affecting your whole body.

How Long Do Boil And Abscess Treatment Take?

Simple abscess boils treatments typically take a short amount of time, often under an hour. The actual duration can vary based on the specific circumstances of the case, including the size and severity of the abscess boil and the chosen treatment approach.

While our staff can examine and treat a wide range of abscess boils with fast and effective treatments, you should always seek immediate attention from a hospital for serious infections or emergencies.
