Caption: A skin boil, a tender, inflamed area of skin containing pus. The infection that causes a boil is usually due to the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus entering through a hair follicle or a small wound. Boils may be more likely to form when a person's resistance is low. They are treated by lancing to release pus & with antibiotics. Occasionally, they may cause a more widespread infection.
