Caption: Close-up of a boil or furuncle on an infant's forearm. A boil is a painful skin infection, usually caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, which may enter through a hair follicle or a break in the skin. It starts as a red painful lump, which progressively fills with pus. Boils are treated with antibiotics or, in severe cases, may be lanced by a doctor to allow the pus to drain.
