Hello Ahmad, Thank you for the question.
Boils are lumps that are formed due to a bacterial infection in the hair follicles on the skin. This infection causes inflammation and pus collection. Boils can appear in any area of the skin and can enlarge. Besides appearing lumps, boils can also be accompanied by skin redness, swelling, pus out, and cause fever. Sebaceous cysts (fluid-filled sacs formed from oil glands in the skin) with a secondary bacterial infection can also cause lumps similar to boils.
Handling of this infection depends on the severity. In general, bacterial infections are indeed treated with antibiotics which can be ointments and / or drinking tablets. However, if the infection has caused the appearance of a large enough lump and pus discharge, generally additional treatment is needed in the form of a small surgical action on this lump to remove and clean the pus. After the source of the infection is cleansed, the doctor will recommend regular wound care and antibiotics. At this time, please advise your wife to further consult the closest surgeon. The doctor will examine your wife's feet and do the next treatment. While waiting for a doctor's consultation, your wife can apply a warm compress to this lump, not solve this lump, keep this lump clean and dry, and avoid contact with water.
I hope this helps.
