Majorly, boils are caused because of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria that is commonly found on the skin and inside the nose. This causes the formation of boils that are filled with pus over time.
You can get rid of boils fast by doing some of the home remedies like warm water soaks, applying turmeric or by using an anti-bacterial cleanser. However, if the boils on skin are severely infected, you should consult a doctor.
Boils on skin need to be open and you must drain out the pus for them to heal. This usually takes around two weeks of time.
Usually people with immune system disorders, poor hygiene or malnutrition are prone to getting boils. Even if you do not lack anything in your body, you can still get boils.
No, you should never squeeze a boil as it can push the infection deeper into the skin.
