The Causes Of Boils On The Inner Thighs Or Buttocks

The Causes Of Boils On The Inner Thighs Or Buttocks

By | February 21, 2023

Treatment usually involves home care and, if the boil is large, antibiotics.

Most boils eventually rupture and release pus. This can be painful, but it generally relieves the pressure and lets the boil heal. Once the boil opens, it drains on its own and heals in about two weeks.

A carbuncle is a large, deep boil that has many interconnected root systems under the skin. A carbuncle is more serious and requires treatment by a healthcare provider.

If you have a boil, you may be tempted to pop it. But this can make the infection worse and lead to scarring. You should never try to burst a boil yourself.

If you have a boil, you can try the following home treatments:

-Wash the area with antibacterial soap

-Apply a warm, wet cloth to the area for 20 minutes, three to four times a day

-Take over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen

-Don’t share towels or other personal items

-Don’t sit for long periods of time

If the boil is large or doesn’t improve with home treatment, you may need antibiotics. Your healthcare provider will likely lance (make a small cut) and drain the boil.
