A Hidradenitis boil is a painful swelling that grows underneath the skin of your buttocks. In many cases, you can use home remedies or alternative remedies for treating boils on buttocks, but sometimes they are so painful or serious that you have to undergo certain conventional medical treatments.
Boil typically look like little swollen red bumps that look like great pimples. Boils on buttocks occur when a hair follicle becomes infected and form an abscess filled with pus. Boils can be extremely painful, depending on their location and size. At some point, usually within two weeks, this abscess is ruptured and the pus is drained.
Treatment of boils on buttocks
One of the most common treatments for these pimples involves puncture and drainage of abscess. This treatment involves cutting the tip of the boil and draining pus, but is usually reserved for large, persistent or severe boils. To relieve pain and cure the infection, your doctor may ask you to keep a gauze pad over the lanced boil and take antibiotics.
If you have diabetes, weakened immune systems or chronic tendency to get abcesses, you may have to take some preventive measures too. To avoid recurrent boils, avoid tight clothes, keep your skin clean at all times and use antibacterial soap and thoroughly clean or treat any cuts, scratches or minor injuries. Frequent hand washing and general hygiene practices can reduce the chances of contracting or spreading a bacterial infection also.
In many cases, you can take care of boils at home. Home remedies for them typically include applying warm compresses to the affected area three to four times a day for about 20 minutes at a time. Treating it and making sure that the surrounding area is cleaned with antibacterial soap at least twice a day is recommended. Covering it with a bandage can also help heal the wound. Boils continue to grow bigger than ping-pong. Particular ones near your anus, near the spine or face should be treated by a health care professional. If its boiling point becomes progressively worse or more painful, or if the pimple refuses to drain, you should consult your doctor.
More about this Disease
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic disease characterized by rounded nodules that are deep, painful and presents itself in the form of recurrent abscesses. The main features are the rear hypertrophic scarring and suppuration of apocrine sweat gland skin: armpits, groin, and peri-anal regions.
It has been estimated that the disease has a prevalence of 1%, although usually considered lower. The armpit and inguinal infections is more common in women, while the peri-anal form is more common in men. It may appear after puberty, but is most common during the third decade of life and may persist in old age. The disease tends to become chronic with subcutaneous extension leading to indurations, cavitations and fistulas, with a profound impact on quality of life.
The causes are unknown. We must not associate it with a lack of hygiene. Although the causes are unknown, people are wary that it may be caused by genetic and hormonal factors. It is believed that genetic determines an alteration in the terminal follicle epithelium and this creates Hidradenitis suppurativa. The subsequent bacterial invasion by bacteria such as coagulase-negative staphylococci and Staphylococcus aureus, is secondary to the disease.
There are factors that favor its appearance. These are the snuff, obesity, tight clothing, deodorants or other topical cosmetic products in the area of disease or shaving.
HD is often associated with other pathologies; Among them the Crohn’s disease. In fact, the beginning of the disease is so similar that some authors claim that Hidradenitis is a symptom of Crohn.
