Boil Furuncle Skin Infections Walk in Medical Clinic Orlando

We have seen a patient who is 25 years old who came in with the history of swelling of right upper back for 7 days. The patient is also is in the pain and has redness. The patient had normal blood pressure and temperature. The patient had infection of the skin and tissues around it. The patient was seen by Dr. Jain who took a sample of the infection and gave the antibiotics Septra DS. The patient responded well to the antibiotics and culture grew MRSA infections.
Boils are red, pus-filled lumps around a hair follicle that are tender, warm, and very painful. They range from pea-sized to golf ball-sized. 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 a severe infection, an individual may experience fever, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue. Skin infections tend to be recurrent in many patients and often spread to other family members. Systemic factors that lower resistance commonly are detectable, including: diabetes, obesity, and hematologic disorders
