Boil Initial Stage Pictures - 3 Photos & Images
The symptoms of boils are red, pus -filled lumps that are tender, warm, and painful. Boils tend to get larger and more painful over a few days, before bursting and releasing the pus. A yellow or white point at the center of the lump can be seen when the boil is ready to drain or discharge pus. In some people, itching may develop before the lumps begin to develop. Boils are most often found on the back, underarms, shoulders, face, lip, thighs and buttocks, but may be found elsewhere. The same bacteria that cause the boil may also produce a toxin (poison) that causes blood clots, usually in the blood vessels that are around the boil.
Sign and symptoms may include the following :
Pus -filled lumps.
A yellow or white point at the center of the lump.
Fever and itching.
Swollen lymph nodes.
