Location of abscesses

An abscess may be on the surface or on an organ inside the body. The most dangerous abscess are those that cannot be seen.  They can form where a break in the skin becomes infected, resulting in boils or carbuncles. Carbuncles are large skin abscess with several openings. Abscess often develop in bone below an infected tooth or below a fingernail. Visible or not, it can be painful to the touch, cause an unexplained headache and feel hot. Below a tooth an abscess may result in continuous or throbbing pain. The infection that causes the abscess often produces swelling of lymph nodes; it may also result in fever and a sick feeling. All cuts, however small, should be cleaned with soap and water. Any lingering boil, large abscess, or painful swelling needs the attention of a physician.bacteria

Causes of abscesses

When the immune system fights a local infection, the area swells with dead cells; abscesses chemicals from immune cells dissolve dead cells into a thick fluid called pus. The result is an abscess. The abscess is often painful to the touch or sore and aching, and it may be part of an infection that can spread to the other parts of the body. But some abscesses are hidden, making themselves known only through fever or fatigue.


Among various other organisms the most common bacterial organism responsible for the development of skin abscesses is Staphylococcus aureus.
An inflammatory reaction to an infectious bacteria or parasite.

A foreign substance (e.g. needle or a splinter ) within the body.
May develop because of obstructed oil (sebaceous) or sweat glands.
May develop after a surgical procedure.
Inflammation of hair follicles.

Minor breaks and punctures of the skin.
