How to cure an abscess

  An abscess, also known as a cutaneous abscess or furuncle, is a painful, pus-filled lump that appears on the surface of the skin. The abscess can be small, the size of a pea, and large, the size of a golf ball; It can occur on any part of the body. Most often the abscess is provoked by an infection in the hair follicles or cutaneous sebaceous glands. Although boils often are quite painful and unattractive, this is not such a serious problem, and you can very effectively cure it at home.

Treatment of an abscess

   Apply a hot compress to the abscess. Once you have found the first signs of an abscess, you should start treatment with hot compresses. The sooner you start treatment, the fewer difficulties you will have in the future. To make a hot compress, take a clean towel and hold it under hot water until it gets wet, then wring out excess moisture. Press a warm wet towel to the abscess for 5-10 minutes. Repeat the procedure 3-4 times a day.
- Hot compress performs several useful functions that will accelerate the healing of abscess. First, heat increases blood circulation in an infected area, facilitating the flow of antibodies and white blood cells to the site of infection. Also, heat pushes pus to the surface of the abscess, improving its outflow. Finally, a hot compress relieves pain.
- If the abscess is on a part of the body that is sensitive to a hot compress, you can replace it with a warm one. In the case of abscesses in the lower half of the body, sitting in a hot tub can also be helpful.

 Do not pierce or squeeze out the abscess at home. When the surface of the abscess becomes soft and filled with pus, you may have a desire to independently pierce the boil and merge its contents. However, this is not recommended, because so you can infect the abscess with bacteria or spread the infection inside it to the rest of the skin surface, causing many new boils. Under the condition of continuing hot compresses, the abscess should burst and drain itself by the next couple of weeks.

  Wash out the abscess with antibacterial soap. When the abscess starts to leak, it is very important to keep the skin clean. Carefully wash the abscess with antibacterial soap in warm water until the pus flows. After everything flows out, wipe the boil dry with a clean towel or paper napkins; Immediately after that, discard what was wiped out to prevent the spread of the infection.

  Apply antibacterial cream and cover the abscess. Next, you need to apply antibacterial cream or ointment and cover this place with gauze. Gauze will allow the abscess to continue to flow and dry, so that the bandage will need to be changed frequently. Antibacterial creams and ointments are designed specifically for the treatment of abscesses, they are available without a prescription at your local pharmacy

Continue to make hot compresses until the abscess completely heals. After the abscess has started to flow, you should continue to apply hot compresses, clean the site of inflammation and cover it until the boil completely heals. As long as you conscientiously maintain the cleanliness in the place of the abscess, you should not have any difficulties, and a boil should take place within a week or two.
- Do not forget to wash your hands with antibacterial soap before and after contact with an abscess to avoid spreading the infection.
