Hello Matheus Ferry,
Boils or boils are infections of the skin tissue that are usually caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. Ulcers are characterized by reddish lumps, pain, and pus. If the infection occurs in deeper tissue an abscess will form larger in size than a boil. Patients can complain of fever in these conditions.
Furuncles and abscesses can form due to infection of the skin (both small and large). Risk factors for ulcers are:
Lack of body hygiene Suffer from immunosuppressed disorders: HIV patients, diabetes mellitus, undergoing chemotherapy, using long-term corticosteroid therapy, malnourished patients Experiencing skin problems such as eczema Peripheral vascular disorders Diagnosis of furuncles and abscesses can be established from physical examination by a doctor. Furunkel with small size and shallow, generally can break by itself and heal leaving scars / scar tissue without any treatment after 2-3 weeks. In larger and more common abscesses additional medical procedures are needed to remove pus and clean up the remaining inflammatory and dead tissue, then the wound is given gauze to absorb the remaining pus, and the wound is treated routinely to facilitate the natural wound healing process. Administration of antibiotics by drinking or in severe cases intravenously (injected through a vein) is needed for abscesses.
If possible, you can come and see a doctor to get the appropriate medicines in the form of antibiotics and pain relievers. The doctor will also evaluate whether or not additional measures are needed to remove the pus if it is still present. At home you can warmly compress the lumps several times a day. Clean broken boils after every bath and avoid wounds exposed to dirty environments. If the doctor gives topical treatment (topical), always wash your hands with soap and water before applying the medicine to the skin. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
