Causes of abscess/boils on body
Abscess is an accumulation of pus that can occur anywhere in the body, including on the skin and inside of organs and tissues.
But when an abscess forms around a hair follicle, it’s known as a BOIL. Dr. Samuel Yu, a Medical doctor at Bethsaida clinic in Wandegeya describes an abscess as a swelling on or in the body where a thick yellowish poisonous liquid (pus) has gathered on a human body.
The causes of abscess are poor diet, impaired immune system, trauma, puncture wounds or cuts, clothing rubbing against the skin and bacterial invasion.
