Boils With No Eyes, Swelling, Pain And Chills.?
it’s been 5 days that one of my fingers is swollen and painful and makes it difficult for me to walk … my guess is that it is a boil but until now it has no boils but only swelling and pain that makes me feel chills … lymph nodes near my boils also sick … guess what the medicine
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lumps or swelling on the surface of the skin accompanied by redness, palpable heat and pain is a sign of inflammation or inflammation of the skin.
These lumps can be caused by conditions that underlie inflammation, for example:
1. Folliculitis, which is an infection of the hair glands.
2. Furunculosis, which is an infection of the hair glands accompanied by inflammation of the surrounding tissue.
3. Ectima, which is a superficial wound in the skin layer.
4. Abscess, which is a pus-filled lump in the deeper layers of the skin that is getting bigger due to a germ infection.
Risk factors for these conditions include:
1. Poor hygiene
2. Nutrition deficiency
3. Immune disorders
4. Skin that is not intact
This skin infection can also be accompanied by enlargement of the surrounding lymph nodes in response to infection by the body. Doctors make the diagnosis based on symptoms and direct physical examination of abnormalities in the skin. Additional tests may be needed such as microscopic examination to determine the type of bacteria or other organisms that cause it.
Treatment of cases like this is to maintain personal hygiene and good nutrition. The doctor may suggest compressing the wound with sterile liquid if the wound is wet. Antibiotics either in topical or oral form are given if the lump is clearly caused by an infection from the results of the examination.
Consult a doctor to be assessed for skin disorders that occur and the appropriate treatment.
So, hopefully this information can help
