The Cause Of The Lump Under The Chin Never Heals?
Hello, I want to ask. My 11-year-old brother has been suffering from ulcers under the chin for 2 years and has already been pre-treated, he said it is only udun and given an ointment, it has dried up, but later relapses again. Actually it hurts
Good evening, thanks for the question
Boils or abscesses are caused by bacterial infections of the skin due to the organism Staphylococcus aureus. Most children who experience recurrent abscesses do not have immune disorders that need to be worried about, as long as the infection responds well to the treatment given, the child's growth and development is normal, the child is completely recovered after treatment, and returns to health after the infection is treated.
In humans there are microorganisms that live permanently and do no harm, for example on the surface of the skin or intestinal mucosa. This condition is called colonization. In children who often experience skin abscesses generally occur due to colonization of Staphylococcus aureus. This bacterium can also be transmitted to other family members who come in close contact with children.
These recurrent abscesses are generally harmless, only they can cause scars after healing which can interfere with appearance. What needs to be done so as not to get infected often is to maintain personal hygiene and the environment, often wash hands with soap after activity, and eat foods rich in vitamins and nutrients to enhance immunity against pathogenic microorganism infections.
That's all, hope you can help
