Boils - Symptom, Causes & Treatment

Boils (furuncle, carbuncle) are painful swellings of the skin caused by deep skin infection with bacteria. A boil is a deep form of bacterial folliculitis. Boils usually start as red, tender lumps. The lumps quickly fill with pus, growing larger and more painful until they rupture and drain. Boils begin as red, tender swellings, which may later ooze pus.

Boils can occur anywhere on your skin, but appear mainly on your face, neck, armpits, buttocks or thighs — hair-bearing areas where you're most likely to sweat or experience friction. Causes fo boils are not known, but it is estimated that 10- 20% of the population are Staph. carriers.
