What are facial boils and how are they dangerous?
Furuncles are not just a cosmetic problem. Large abscesses on the face are most often localized near the wings of the nose or above the upper lip. The boil differs from the usual pimple by the presence of a dense rod. Inside, it is filled with pus. Outside, a dirty white bump appears. The adjacent tissues are reddened, slightly swollen. Furuncles can leave not only scars on the face, but also cause bloodclots. The close connection of the blood vessels of the face with the skull can cause the spread of the inflammatory process to the brain. The fusion of several boils leads to the formation of carbuncles. If you delay the treatment of such inflammations, the price can be even more serious complications, for example, osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone marrow, bones and soft tissues) or sepsis (blood poisoning). Plus, the cost of treatment at the initial stage will always be lower.
Causes of furunculosis:
- damage to the skin with penetration of the infection;
- dermatological diseases;
- problems associated with metabolism substances and a decrease in the protective properties of the body;
- regular skin pollution;
- hypothermia, overheating;
- infectious diseases.
Most often, the formation of boils is caused by streptococci and staphylococci, some other bacteria that are detected in association with these. It is impossible to squeeze out boils or massage the skin around them. Treatment should be performed by an experienced professional.
Furunculosis can be acute or chronic. In the first case, several abscesses are formed at once, in the second case, the process can last for a very long time (after the disappearance of one neoplasm, another immediately arises). Under any circumstances, a certain therapy is required to eliminate the inflammatory process.
Treatment of boils
Initially, they try to remove boils using conservative methods. Diagnostics follows first, involving the delivery of tests in order to identify the true cause.
At the next stage, special ointments are prescribed. To strengthen immunity, drugs of the interferon group and vitamins can be prescribed. If the cause is infection, antibiotic therapy is mandatory.
If conservative treatment does not help, surgery is indicated. In Israel, maxillofacial surgery has reached a high level of excellence. Specialists in this area are able to remove the boil without leaving a noticeable scar, which is very important when the abscess is located on the face. Moreover, it is worth contacting the doctors in Israel if the boil has arisen due to problems with the teeth, on the gums. The price of services is quite democratic, it stands out favorably against the background of other clinics.
In general, the operation is very simple. It takes a little time. It involves dissection of the abscess, elimination of exudate, disinfection of the wound.
