What is boils in children?

Boils are infections just under the top layer of the skin. Boils often form in the glands around the root of a hair. The wall of the gland keeps the infection in one place, so it does not spread into the surrounding skin. At first, the skin turns red in the area of the infection and a tender lump develops. After four to seven days, the lump starts turning white as pus collects under the skin. The most common places for boils are on the face, neck, armpits, shoulders, and buttocks. When one forms on the eyelid, it is called a sty.

Causes of boils in children

Most boils are caused by a germ called staphylococcal bacteria. This germ enters the body through tiny cuts on the skin and can travel down the hair to the follicle. Boils generally appear when a person is in a run-down and devitalized condition.
