Greetings, healthy, r n r nI have no ulcers for a week and they have burst by themselves but the pus has not completely come out (because it is still a little swollen and soft) but the wound where the pus came out has closed. I wonder how?

Hi Nana, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Boils are red bumps on the surface of the skin that form due to a collection of pus under the skin as a reaction to the body's defense against bacterial infection. In addition to appearing red bumps, usually you will find a white dot at the top of this lump, the skin around the lump can also be red and swollen, and this lump can also be painful. The treatment of boils usually depends on their severity. Ulcers that are small in size can generally be treated at home by:

doing warm compresses on these bumps
if the boil has burst, please clean with clean gauze and cover the wound with sterile gauze

Ulcers that are large usually require further treatment by a doctor. If your boil has burst but not all of it comes out, you should consult your doctor for further treatment. The doctor will make a small incision in the boil to remove all the pus and clean this scar. Avoid trying to break the boil as this can cause the infection to get worse. In addition, the doctor may also give antibiotics depending on the condition of the boil after the doctor's examination.


Hope this information is useful.
