Caption

Axillary abscess. Close-up of an axillary abscess in the armpit of a 16-year old boy. Abscesses are pus-filled infections surrounded and walled off by damaged and inflamed tissue. They can develop in any organ in the body as well as in the soft tissue beneath the skin. Those under the skin are usually red, painful and very tender. The usual cause of abscesses is infection by bacteria of the genus Staphylococcus, although other types of microorganism may be responsible. Treatment includes making a surgical cut in the abscess to allow pus to drain, and antibiotic drugs to prevent a recurrence.
