What is a skin boil
A boil (aka skin abscess) is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. This can be seen in the skin boil pics. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells. The combination of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. Eventually, the pus "forms a head," which will eventually drain.
Causes of boils
Many things can cause a boil. They include:
- Ingrown hair.
- Result of a splinter or other foreign material that gets lodged in the skin.
- Plugged sweat glands that become infected. This can be seen in several of the pictures of skin boils.
- Any break in the skin, even a small cut or scrape, can develop into an abscess which can become infected with bacteria.
It is important to treat the boil immediately. Complications can set in if left untreated. Boils are extremely contagious. If the pus leaks from the boil it can spread to nearby skin and cause more boils to form. The pus can also enter the blood stream and spread the infection to other parts of your body.

Please do not delay treating your skin boils. If you delay treatment and an infection sets in, you will then need to get an antibiotic.
Skin boil prevention
If you are prone to skin boils, there are two important things you can do to prevent them.
The first is to keep your skin clean by washing two times a day. This will prevent bacteria from building up and infecting your pores. It is extremely important to use a quality cleanser. We have been recommending a cleanser for several years now. It removes dead skin, unclogs pores, nourishes the skin, and helps to protect the living layers of your skin. It has no side effects, and we have had remarkable success with it. It is called
Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser.
Although it was originally designed for acne, it is the best all purpose cleansing skin care product we have ever tried. Follow the link to find out more about it, and how it can help you.
The second and extremely important thing is to use a skin supplement. Having healthy well nourished skin is essential for avoiding skin boils. Many people forget that your skin gets nourishment from the foods and supplements that you consume. Improper nourishment often leads to skin problems. Using the right skin supplement will keep your skin healthy and youthful looking, and make it more resistant to potential skin problems such as boils.
The other benefits of skin supplements include:
- Help your skin to be healthier and look younger.
- Help in fighting skin ailments such as acne and boils.
- Help to protect the skin from environmental pollutants
- Improve your immune system.
The best skin supplement on the market is all-natural, and will give you all of the above benefits. The professionals associated with this site highly recommend it, and many of us take it ourselves to be proactive. That product is
