Skin Boil Treatment

My daughter is suffering from Skin Boil this time and it is spreading on her legs. I  used an antibacterial ointment but it seems it doesn't work.

I had been searching online for Skin Boil Treatment and I had found some helpful articles from Healthy Skin Guide.

A Skin Boil or Skin Abscess is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells. The combination of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. Eventually, the pus "forms a head," which will eventually drain. 

Many things can cause a boil.  and they include: 

-Ingrown hair.

-Result of a splinter or other foreign material that gets lodged in the skin.

-Plugged sweat glands that become infected. This can be seen in several of the pictures of skin boils.

-Any break in the skin, even a small cut or scrape, can develop into an abscess which can become infected with bacteria. 

 It is important to treat the boil immediately. Complications can set in if left untreated. Boils are extremely contagious. If the pus leaks from the boil it can spread to nearby skin and cause more boils to form. The pus can also enter the blood stream and spread the infection to other parts of the body.
If you are prone to skin boils, there are two important things you can do to prevent them. The first is to keep your skin clean by washing two times a day. This will prevent bacteria from building up and infecting your pores.

The second and extremely important thing is to use a skin supplement. Having healthy well nourished skin is essential for avoiding skin boils.
 It would be better if we will go to my daughter's pediatrician so we could buy a prescribed treatment for her skin boil.
