Furuncle on Face Pictures - 10 Photos & Images

A furuncle is an infection of the pilosebaceous unit, therefore is more extensive than a folliculitis because the infection also involves the sebaceous gland. A furuncle frequently occurs on the neck, face, armpits, and buttocks. It begins as a small, tender, red nodule that becomes painful and fluctuant. Frequently, pus will spontaneously drain, and often the furuncle will resolve on its own. Factors that contribute to the development of furuncles include:
Blood disorders
Taking oral steroid medications
