BOIL (FURUNCLE) DESCRIPTION
AN INFECTED NODULE
Boils, referred to as furuncles by medical professionals, are round pus-filled nodules on the skin that result from a bacterial or fungal infection. Boils are often infected with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The infection begins in the deepest portion of a hair follicle, and then the bacteria bore into the skin's deepest layers and the inflammation spreads. The infected hair follical can be on any part of your body - it is not limited to your scalp. When the hair follicle becomes infected, the skin around it also becomes inflamed. The furuncle looks like a red, raised bump on your skin, but can later rupture and weep fluid. Furuncles are most commonly found on the face and neck. You might also develop a boil on your thigh or buttocks.
Poor nutrition, illness that has depressed immune function, diabetes mellitus, and the use of immunosuppressive drugs are common contributing factors. This disorder is common, especially among children and adolescents.
TYPES OF BOILS
There are several different types of boils. Among these are:
RELATED SKIN PROBLEMS
- Furuncle or Carbuncle: This is an abscess in the skin caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. A furuncle can have one or more openings onto the skin and may be associated with a fever or chills.
- Cystic Acne: This is a type of abscess that is formed when oil ducts become clogged and infected. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue that the more superficial inflammation from common acne. Cystic acne is most common on the face and typically occurs in the teenage years.
- Hidradenitis Suppurativa: This is a condition in which there are multiple abscesses that form under the armpits and often in the groin area. These areas are a result of local inflammation of the sweat glands. This form of skin infection is difficult to treat with antibiotics alone and typically requires a surgical procedure to remove the involved sweat glands in order to stop the skin inflammation.
- Pilonidal Cyst: This is a unique kind of abscess that occurs in the crease of the buttocks. Pilonidal cysts often begin as tiny areas of infection in the base of the area of skin from which hair grows (the hair follicle). With irritation from direct pressure, over time the inflamed area enlarges to become a firm, painful, tender nodule making it difficult to sit without discomfort. These frequently form after long trips that involve prolonged sitting.

BOIL (FURUNCLE) CAUSES
Any type of bacteria or fungi can cause a furuncle. The most common cause is a bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus. You might also refer to a boil as a staph infection. Everyone has Staphylococcus aureus on their skin as a normal occurrence. The bacterium causes an infection only if it enters your bloodstream through an open wound, such as a cut or a scratch. Once the bacterium is in your blood, your immune system tries to fight it. The boil is actually the result of your white blood cells working to eliminate the infection.
You are more likely to develop a boil if your immune system is compromised, or if you have a medical condition that causes wounds to heal more slowly. Diabetes and eczema (a chronic skin disorder characterized by extremely dry, itchy skin) are two examples of chronic conditions that may increase your risk of getting furuncles. Your risk can also increase if you engage in close, personal contact with someone who already has a staph infection.
RISK FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THE CAUSE
Both furuncles and carbuncles may affect healthy young people but are more common among the obese, the immunocompromised (including those with neutrophil defects), the elderly, and possibly those with diabetes.
Clustered cases may occur among those living in crowded quarters with relatively poor hygiene or among contacts of patients infected with virulent strains.
Predisposing factors include bacterial colonization of skin or nares, hot and humid climates, and occlusion or abnormal follicular anatomy (eg, comedones in acne). Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a common cause.
BOIL (FURUNCLE) FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
STAGES OF BOIL FORMATION
SYMPTOMS THAT A BOIL MAY BE FORMING
Itching. Mild pain. Localized swelling.
WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE FIRST SYMPTOMS
Boils often appear suddenly on the scalp, buttocks, face, or underarms. Tenderness, pain, especially when attached to underlying structures (nose, ear, fingers). The boil becomes red and filled with pus. Fever and swelling of the lymph glands nearest the boil may occur.
A furuncle may begin as a benign-looking bump on your skin, similar to a pimple. As the infection worsens, however, the boil can become painful and hard. Bacteria and dead skin cells may then build up underneath the skin, forming pus. The pressure from this accumulation of debris builds, which may cause the furuncle to erupt and release its fluids.
The pain is usually at its worst right before a furuncle ruptures and will most likely improve after the boil drains.
Furuncles can range in size from as small as a pea to as big as a golf ball. The skin around the infected hair follicle may become red, swollen, and tender. Scarring is also possible.
The development of several boils in the same general area of your body is called a carbuncle. Carbuncles may cause a fever and chills. These symptoms are less common with a single boil.
BOIL (FURUNCLE) TREATMENT
BOILS ARE CONTAGIOUS
The pus that drains when a boil opens can contaminate nearby skin, causing new boils. The pus can enter the bloodstream and spread to other body parts. A carbuncle is a cluster of boils that occurs when the infection spreads and other boils are formed. The formation of a carbuncle may be an indication of immune depression.
Without treatment, a boil usually comes to a head, opens, drains, and heals in 10 to 25 days.
With treatment, symptoms are less severe and new boils should not appear.
CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL TREATMENT
Many people do not need to see a health care provider for treatment unless a boil remains large, unruptured, or very painful for more than two weeks. Usually within this timeframe, a furuncle will already have drained and begun to heal.
Diagnosis is made by appearance during an examination. Material is often collected for culture. Treatment is warm compresses and often oral antistaphylococcal antibiotics. Treatment for stubborn furuncles generally includes steps to promote drainage and healing. Warm compresses can help speed the rupturing of a furuncle. Apply a warm, moist compress throughout the day to facilitate drainage. Continue to apply warmth to provide both healing and pain relief after a boil has ruptured. Wash your hands and the boil site thoroughly and frequently with warm water and antibacterial soap to avoid spreading the staph bacteria to other areas of your body.
Boils may be symptomatic of a more serious infection within the body. They should always be treated with care, especially if they are accompanied by other symptoms, such as a fever or a poor appetite.
Boils should not be squeezed or punctured prematurely. In very serious cases, boils may need to be incised by a health care provider.
The area around a draining boil (especially on the face) may be protected with a prescribed antibiotic cream to help prevent complications such as septicemia or meningitis.
A health care provider may prescribe an oral antibiotic. These drugs have side effects, however. It is best not to use them unless other measures fail.
Over the counter antibiotic ointments are ineffective for boils and should be avoided.
With treatment and change in nutritional habits, the boil should clear up.
Abscesses are incised and drained. Intermittent hot compresses are used to facilitate drainage. Antibiotics, when used, should be effective against MRSA, pending culture and sensitivity test results. In afebrile patients, treatment of a single lesion less than 5 mm requires no antibiotics. If a single lesion is equal to or greater than 5 mm, an oral antibiotic is given for 5 to 10 days; choices include:
Systemic antibiotics are also needed for
- Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) 160/800 mg to 320/1600 mg bid
- Clindamycin 300 to 600 mg q 6 to 8 h
- Doxycycline or minocycline 100 mg q 12 h.
- Patients with fever, multiple abscesses, or carbuncles are given 10 days of TMP/SMX 160/800 mg to 320/1600 mg bid plus rifampin 300 mg bid.
Furuncles frequently recur and can be prevented by applying liquid soap containing either chlorhexidine gluconate with isopropyl alcohol or 2 to 3% chloroxylenol and by giving maintenance antibiotics over 1 to 2 months. Patients with recurrent furunculosis should be treated for predisposing factors such as obesity, diabetes, occupational or industrial exposure to inciting factors, and nasal carriage of S. aureus or MRSA colonization.
- Lesions less than 5 mm that do not resolve with drainage.
- Evidence of expanding cellulitis.
- Immunocompromised patients.
- Patients at risk of endocarditis.
Contact your health care provider if your furuncle remains unruptured or if you are in severe pain after a couple of weeks. You may need antibiotics to clear the infection. Your health practitioner may also elect to manually drain the boil with sterile instruments in his or her office. Do not try to open it yourself by squeezing, pricking, or cutting. This can increase your risk of deeper infection and more severe scarring.
The majority of furuncles heal without medical intervention or complications. In rare cases, boils can lead to more complicated and dangerous medical conditions. Blood poisoning is an infection of the bloodstream that may occur after having a furuncle. This type of infection, called sepsis, can lead to infections of the heartís lining or the brain.
Another possible complication associated with boils is the development of an infection called MRSA. MRSA is an abbreviation of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Standard antibiotics to treat furuncles and other types of infection are not able to eliminate MRSA. Your health care provider will most likely prescribe a different kind of antibiotic called vancomycin if you develop this more serious infection.
Prevent furuncles through good personal hygiene. Wash your hands often, clean all open wounds, and keep wounds covered with bandages. Avoid contact with those infected with staph or MRSA.
HOME TREATMENT & MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
Use a dietary cleansing fast to clear the system and rid the body of toxins that may cause boils.
MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Fasting
To relieve pain and help to bring the boil to a head, apply moist heat 3 or 4 times a day. Wet a clean towel or sterile gauze pad with warm water and apply it to the boil. Place a heating pad or a hot water bottle on top. Do this for 20 minutes, 3 or 4 times daily. Use a clean towel or fresh piece of gauze each time to prevent spreading the infection. Warm Epsom Salts baths are also good.
MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Hydrotherapy
MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Hot & Cold Therapy
Do not cover a boil with an adhesive bandage, but do avoid irritation, injury, or trauma to the affected area. To avoid sweating, do not exercise or engage in strenuous activity until to boil heals.
Keep the skin clean. Hygiene is very important. Wash your hands with soap and hot water before and after handling the infected area. Wash the infected area several times a day and swab it with antiseptic.
You can apply Honey directly to the boil. Vitamin A and Vitamin E emulsion, applied directly on boils is helpful.
Clay packs and/or Chlorophyll are also good. Both of these can be found in health food stores. Apply them directly to the boil with a sterile gauze pad.
Charcoal capsules made into a paste and applied to the boil will help draw out the infection. Break open 2 capsules of charcoal and mix with just enough water to make the paste.
Belladonna, as a homeopathic remedy, helps reduce swelling and inflammation. Another homeopathic remedy, Calcarea sulphurica, is useful if a boil has opened and is draining but is not healing properly.
If a boil is very large, persistent, or recurrent, consult with your health care provider. Surgical incision and drainage may be necessary. Severe cases may require bed rest.
Black Salve has a strong drawing power to promote healing. It has been used on such skin ailments as boils, abscesses, splinters, carbuncles, felons, skin infections, skin cancer, cysts and tumors.
Burdock root and Pau D'Arco are natural antibiotics that help rid the body of infections and toxins.
Comfrey is one of the most well-known healing plants, especially for its ability to heal tissue and bone. Use as a poutlice alone or with plantain leaves.
Crush Plantain leaves and squeeze out the juice. Apply the extract directly to the sting. Within 30 minutes the pain and swelling should be greatly reduced. Make a plantain poultice by crushing and mashing fresh leaves by hand, using a mortar and pestle, food processor or in a blender with just enough water to turn them into a mushy pulp. Apply the mushy leaved directly on the wound area and wrap with gauze. Keep it there for at least 30 minutes, but can be left on longer (overnight), if desired. This is good for all kinds of wounds, bruising, stings, blood blisters and skin sores and irritations.
Poultices made from Comfrey, Slippery Elm, and White Oak Bark and Leaves ease pain and promote healing. Also good are Lobelia poultices and Plantain poultices or salve. Note: Comfrey is recommended for external use only unless under the supervision of a health care provider.
Dandelion and Milk Thistle are liver cleansers.
Echinacea and Goldenseal help to cleanse the lymph glands. Caution: Do not take goldenseal on a daily basis for more than one week at a time, and do not use it during pregnancy. If you have a history of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or glaucoma, use it only under a health care provider's supervision.
Flaxseed and Fenugreek, simmered together and mashed into a pulp, can be used as a compress.
Oat Straw, taken in tea form, supplies Silica, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Red Clover acts as a natural antibiotic and is good for bacterial infections. It cleanses the liver and the blood stream.
Chinese health practitioners today use Rhubarb Root teas to treat stubborn infections of the skin caused by Staphylococcus aureus. A powder of Rhubarb Root and Licorice can be made into a plaster to treat boils and furuncles.
Suma boosts the immune system.
Onion poultices are good for boils. Apply pieces of onion wrapped in a piece of cloth - not directly to the area.
Tea Tree Oil Compresses act as an antiseptic. Add 9 to 10 drops of oil to 1 quart of warm water. Soak a clean cloth in the warm liquid and apply to the boil. The Tea Tree Essential Oil can be left on the boil for 30 minutes or more, and may be applied 3 or 4 times a day.
