Hello good night Villa.

Abscess is a term commonly used to describe a swelling or lump filled with pus. The abscess is reddish in color, warm to the touch, and painful to the touch. Abscesses usually arise in the skin of the armpits, the area around the anus and vagina, and around the teeth. However, abscesses can also grow in other parts of the body, including the face, one of which is the result of severe/severe acne.

The severity of a pimple that causes an abscess stems from a comedone. Blackheads are formed from clogged skin pores which are composed of oil from the oil glands in the skin mixed with dead skin cells. The blockage forms an environment favored by acne-causing bacteria, one of which is P. acnes bacteria. Along with the bacteria that continue to multiply, the infection also continues, causing an inflammatory reaction in response to the body's immune system, until an inflamed pimple is formed, which appears as a reddish bulge on the surface of the skin, which in the middle can contain a pustule. If the inflammation that occurs does not stop, for example due to inadequate treatment, the bulge will get bigger and swollen due to the accumulation of pus and P. acnes bacteria. In more severe conditions, white blood cells will move from the blood vessels and fill the inflamed area, so that the pus will be more and more, and an abscess is formed. Regarding how big the percentage is, until now there has been no research that says with certainty the incidence of abscesses due to acne.

If an abscess occurs, then immediately consult a doctor. Treatment in general is to perform drainage, to drain the pus contained in the abscess. However, in particular, the treatment will be tailored to the condition of each patient. In addition to drainage, other treatment can be in the form of antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs. Do not delay the examination, especially if there are signs of a more severe infection, such as a high fever.

I hope this helps.

Regards, dr. Denisa
