I just recover(87%) from abscess. It's on my face(near my chin) At first, I thought it's a zit but then I realized it's not. I've read a few articles about that and am planning to share it with my dear readers :) Mind you that I'm not responsible on the validity of this sharing. But somehow, I did make comparison between articles I read and write this based on that.


Ever heard about that? it is actually a collection of pus that generally developed in response of bacteria. There're a few type of abscess namely skin abscess, hepatic abscess, brain abscess(rare but it's life threatening),dental abscess,etc. I'll focused on skin abscesses. It's actually related to a bacteria called Staphylococcus Aerues. Everyone can develop an abscess and they can occur everywhere in our body. During 2008 and 2009, there were 34,390 reported cases of hospital visits in England due to skin abscesses.(source: NHS) It may get red, swollen, pus-filled lump under the surface of skin and it often painful. Usually doctors will lance the abscesses and give antibiotics. In general, it must open and drain to get better.


#1 Skin care- Ensuring your skin is clean, healthy and free of bacteria can help reduce the risk of skin abscesses developing. Eg: Wash your hands regularly

#2 Healthy diet

#3 Weight control- People who are overweight are more at risk of developing abscess
