Facial carbuncles are a serious reason to contact a specialized specialist

This pathology is caused by an inflammatory process taking place in the hair follicles or sebaceous glands located nearby. It is accompanied by the formation of purulent exudate in large quantities, followed by necrosis of the skin, subcutaneous fatty tissue. In fact, the carbuncle of the face is the fusion of several boils. Unlike the latter, it is characterized by the presence of a number of symptoms of infection, intoxication.
The main causative agents of the inflammatory process: staphylococci, streptococci, sometimes a mixture of both pathogenic organisms. In some cases, Escherichia coli play this role. Chronic diseases accompanied by metabolic disorders, obesity, severe infections, exhaustion, etc., also contribute to the appearance of carbuncles on the face.
General symptoms accompanying the appearance of a carbuncle on the face:
- hyperemia of the skin around the lesion;
