Boils, also known as furuncles, are common, deep skin infections that starts in a hair follicle or oil gland. Most are caused by bacteria called staphylococcus. Bacteria enters the body through tiny breaks in the skin, such as cuts or scrapes. Plugged sweat glands, ingrown hairs and puncture wounds such as splinters are all common starting points for infection. Boils most commonly appear on the face, neck, armpits, shoulders, groin, buttocks and thighs.
A boil generally begins as a tender, reddened 1-inch spot and progresses into a firm, painful lump. Generally, after a week or less, the center of the boil softens and develops a white or yellow center, or pustule. This may provide significant discomfort, along with weeping or crusting. Pain is relieved when the pus is drained either spontaneously from the skin’s surface, or with surgery.
They can be tender; become inflamed; and pose a high risk for infection. Healing requires diligent, gentle cleaning and intensive relief. Terrasil Skin Repair powerfully guards against bacterial infection while promoting healing. It also soothes inflammation, redness and irritation.
