Boils – The Science Behind Them:
Boils are essentially a skin infection, which starts in the oil gland or a hair follicle that is embedded in the skin. They are otherwise known as skin abscess. This is caused by a bacterium, Staphylococcus aureus, which resides in our body. The bacterium enters the body through skin lesions.
Now that you know what causes boils, let’s take a look at the reasons why they are caused:
• Damaged hair follicles.
• Excessive scratching with infected fingers and nails.
• Sharing toiletries.
• Weakened immune system.
• Waxing or shaving.
• Allergic reactions.
• Excessive sweating which in turn leads to accumulation of dirt.
• Fabric allergic reaction.
• Recurrent rubbing of thighs.
• Irregular nutrition.
• Poor hygiene.
• Stress and overexertion.
• Infected lymph node.
More often than not, boils do land up in the most private of places, especially the groin. As the groin is naturally filled with hair follicles, it is more susceptible for the boil to lead to jock-itch.
