Many people get boils on buttocks. A skin boil (aka skin abscess) is a localized infection deep in the skin. Boils on buttocks generally start as a reddened, tender area.

Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. 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 in due course drains.

Treatment of buttocks boils is very important. If left untreated, a skin boil can spread and/or become infected. If it becomes infected, antibiotics are necessary.

Fortunately, there is a very safe and effective treatment for these boils. It disinfects the area of the boil, prevents the infection from spreading, and helps to speed up the healing process.

Boil symptoms

Boil symptoms include:

  • Pus-filled lumps that are red, tender and painful.
  • The center of the lump will become white or yellow when it is ready to drain the pus.
  • People with multiple boils can develop fever and/or swollen lymph nodes. A boil that keeps recurring is called chronic furunculosis.
  • Some people have itching before the boil develops.
  • Boils are most often found on the face, back, shoulders, underarms and buttocks.

Causes of boils

Many things can cause boils on buttocks. They include:

  • Ingrown hairs.
  • Result of a splinter or other foreign material that gets lodged into the skin.
  • Plugged sweat glands that become infected. (This is the most common cause of boils buttocks).
  • Any break in your skin, even a small cut or scrape, can develop into an abscess, which can become infected with bacteria.

Treatment of buttocks boils

Once a boils on buttocks diagnosis is made, you need to begin treatment immediately. Complications can set in if left untreated. Skin boils are extremely contagious.
