Causes of Furunculosis
The furuncle is a pustular formation on the skin that has hair. As a result, inflammation of the follicle and the tissues surrounding it occurs. Boils are single and multiple. If multiple boils appear regularly, this disease is called furunculosis. It manifests itself in different parts of the body, mainly on the face, neck, back, buttocks and under the knees. In this article we will learn what boils come from.
Why does furunculosis occur?
There are several reasons why this disease occurs. As a rule, the causes of furunculosis are as follows:
- Bacteria. The main cause of furunculosis is a pyogenic bacterium. Most often, it is staphylococcus. Once in the body, it infects it, thereby triggering the inflammatory process.
- Hygiene rules are not followed. The most prone to the appearance of a furuncle are people who are owners of oily skin. As a result of increased sebum secretion, there is pollution in the face and neck. If:
- there is no proper care for oily skin,
- profuse sweating occurs,
- there are skin lesions (abrasions, microcracks, scratches) that are not treated with antibacterial agents, then all this can be a conductor of bacteria in the body that can lead to the formation of a boil.
- Overcooling or overheating. Furunculosis can be the result of both persistent hypothermia and overheating of the body. This mainly concerns people working on open sites - loaders, builders, laborers, janitors and others. Prolonged exposure to very high or very low temperatures leads to disruption of the rational functioning of the body.
- Diseases of the internal organs. Often, furunculosis can be the result of a chronic or recently suffered illness associated with a violation of the general hormonal background of our body. It can be diseases associated with the violation of the digestive tract (cholecystitis, gastritis, dysbacteriosis), endocrine and urinary systems. Furunculosis may also occur due to diabetes.
