Kerions are fungal abscesses that develop as a side effect to severe cases of scalp ringworm (tinea capitis). Often confused with a bacterial abscess, a kerion is a large, inflamed and pus-filled lesion. When touched, it simply feels like a mushy lump on the scalp; however, a kerion is quite a serious infection. If left untreated, a kerion can lead to hair loss in the area surrounding the lesion, as well as permanent scarring. When a kerion first develops on the scalp, the body begins to send excessive white blood cells to fight the fungal infection. This causes increased swelling and growth of the abscess.
Kerion and scalp fungal infection are most common in children, since adults are ususally resistant to such infections. The underlying condition, scalp ringworm, is caused by an infection of dermatophytes (fungus). Scalp ringworm causes scaly spots and patches of hair loss, but is generally easy to treat.
