    Referred to as a skin abscess, which of these is considered a boil?

    Correct Answer
    B.
    Explanation
    A boil is a skin abscess that is referred to as a localized infection of the hair follicle or oil gland. It is typically caused by bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, entering the skin through a cut or break. Boils are characterized by a painful, red, swollen lump filled with pus. They can occur anywhere on the body but are commonly found on the face, neck, armpits, buttocks, and thighs. Treatment for boils often involves applying warm compresses to help bring the infection to a head and may require medical intervention, such as lancing and draining the boil or prescribing antibiotics.
