Hello warohmatulloh hi wabarokatuh
Good evening, thanks for the question
Skin abscess is a lump that forms on the surface of the skin that contains pus or pus and is caused by a germ infection.
Skin abscesses can appear in any part of the body but often on the back, face, chest and buttocks. Skin abscesses can also occur in areas with hair such as armpits or pubic areas.
Staphylococcus bacterial infection is the most common organism to cause skin abscesses. Skin abscesses are formed due to bacteria entering through the hair follicles or through previous skin sores.
Treatment of skin abscesses can be done at home by using warm compresses to help shrink the abscess.
If the abscess is getting bigger then it is advisable to do drainage or remove the contents of the abscess made by a doctor. In the vicinity of the abscess, a local anesthetic will be performed then an incision is made to remove the pus mass in it. Then the wound will be closed to prevent contamination. Afterwards the doctor will usually give oral and topical antibiotics to prevent infection after the minor surgery. To prevent the recurrence of these conditions, it must maintain personal hygiene and the environment and if you have an open wound, do good wound care so as not to be contaminated with germs from the outside.
So, hopefully it can be useful
