Boil in Nose Pictures - 4 Photos & Images
Boils are inflamed cavities on the skin, filled with pus, usually caused by bacterial infection of the hair follicle. Boils may occur anywhere in our body, but they are most often found on the underarms, thighs, buttocks, butt, shoulders, face, nose, lips, and stomach.
Nose boil requires immediate treatment, as the infection on this part of the face may spread through the veins that are connected to the brain. If this happens, this may lead to a serious condition called cavernous sinus thrombosis, which may result to death.
Boil is commonly caused by bacteria such as staphylococci. Nose boil is very painful as it lasts longer. Some people experience repeated episodes of boil, thus causes of recurring boils can any of the following:
Squeezing the nose boil. Squeezing the boil can spread the infection from other areas on the nose that may cause another boil to grow.
Picking the nose with dirty hands. Dirty hands can be bacteria carrier causing infection that leads to boil formation.
Nose boil recurs frequently to a person with underlying diseases such as diabetes, HIV infection, or other immune system disorder. A nose boil is likely to appear repeatedly because their nasal passages are the carrier of bacterial (staphylococci) colonies.
