Boils occur when hair follicles are infected by bacteria. This condition is clinically often characterized by the appearance of a lump that is swollen, reddish, feels painful, and contains pus in it. Boils can appear in various parts of the body. Not infrequently, boils that are quite large in size, can cause sufferers to experience fever, chills, and muscle aches and joints. Some other conditions can also show clinical symptoms similar to ulcers, such as acne, abscesses, cutaneous candidiasis, insect bites, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant tumors, and so on.
One risk factor that causes a person to experience boils is poor endurance, for example due to diabetes. In addition to poor immune system, blood vessel disorders experienced due to diabetes can also make ulcers heal longer, can even spread to cause more severe complications. This diabetes, clinically often does not show typical symptoms early in its development. However, along with the progression of the disease, sufferers can experience frequent hunger, frequent thirst, frequent urination, frequent tingling or numbness, weight loss dramatically, and many other complaints. If the doctor suspects that your father has diabetes, further tests can be done, including by checking blood sugar (GDS) as you go. Normally, GDS levels are less than 124 mg / dL. If your father's blood sugar level is 101 mg / dL, it certainly means he is not a diabetic. The results of this examination can be confirmed by further tests, such as fasting blood sugar (GDP), blood sugar 2 hours after eating (GD2PP), HbA1c, and so on. Try to reconfirm the results of the examination with the doctor who treated your father.
So that your father's ulcers heal quickly, in addition to undergoing medical treatment, you can help your father do the following trick:
Do not handle boils with dirty hands, let alone solve them by force Keep personal hygiene, including by taking regular baths, always use clean clothes. Drink more, eat fruits and vegetables. Do not exchange clothes or other personal items with others. If the boils still do not heal, check your father goes to a dermatologist
