Abrasions - a disease of an infectious nature, in which the formation of boils.
Boil (a boil vulgar name) - purulent inflammation of the hair follicle, which is involved in the surrounding tissue. Inflammation is caused by the introduction of the hair follicle of an infectious agent, which is a staph.
The most common cause is Staphylococcus aureus boils, at least - White aureus.
Causes of boils
The immediate cause of boils is a pathogen penetration into the skin through microtrauma and reproduction of it there, resulting in a necrotic process involving the hair follicle with surrounding tissues. However, the leading factor in the mechanism of this immunity is to reduce inflammation, both local and general.
Staphylococcus aureus refers to an extremely common pathogens usually gets on the skin of a healthy person, without causing disease. Microtrauma of the skin is also very common. Reducing the protective properties of the skin is the favorable factor that leads to the implementation of the internal environment of staph. At the same time, of course, important to respect the rules of hygiene, as unsanitary conditions increase the frequency of contact with the causative agent of furunculosis.
As a rule, even a single boil indicates low immunity, but the abrasions, which are formed when multiple boils, is always at the heart of the failure of the immune system. The reasons for such a failure can be many: common diseases of the body, circulatory problems, endocrine disorders, stressoneustoychivost, physical and psycho-emotional stress.
Thus, the cause of boils is a combination of local and general damaging factors: local causes staph boils it hit the skin through microtrauma, a common cause of boils - reduced immunity.
Furunculosis children formed by similar mechanisms, and occurs more often than in adults. This is due to imperfections in the age of the immune system in children as well as more frequent minor skin injuries or contact with contaminated items, moreover, has a value of overall health.
Especially common in children abrasions adolescence. This is due to hormonal instability of the body of a teenager, as well as external factors causing reduced immunity (stress, poor nutrition, etc.).

Furuncle passes a certain cycle of development: first, there is a painful pimple (pustule), then comes the stage of infiltration when pustule and surrounding tissue are sealed. In the next step the hair bulb undergoes purulent fusion. The pustule is formed necrotic center, the center of which is a dense core. Then the necrotic tissue are rejected, the wound is cleaned, the process ends scarring. Small boils have consequences in the place of deep tissue damage may be left scars.
Since the formation of multiple abrasions happening boils suffers overall health. Boils are very painful, and depending on location, may hinder perform normal household activities - walk, sit, move your arms, turn his head, etc. May show signs of intoxication: fever to subfebrile figures, the overall deterioration of health, headache, decreased appetite.

Diagnosis boils usually straightforward, since the surface location of the foci of inflammation. However, the stubborn, not susceptible to the disease during the treatment may require detailed diagnostics to establish the exact causes of boils. In this case, seeding is carried out bacterial pus follicular pustules, full blood count, immunodiagnostics. In the absence of results was carried out a full examination of the body, as the cause of boils in this case can be a common disease (diabetes, blood disease etc.).
