In the family of unpleasant skin infections boils, whitlow, and impetigo. Three infections caused in the majority of cases by the bacteria staphylococcus aureus and/or streptococcus.

The boil is characterized first of all by a small inflammation centered around hair, painful, hot, covered with shiny red skin. After a few days a hard, yellow cone is formed, filled with pus, with the characteristic appearance of the boil. Leaving a red crater when it is eliminated, its scar is sometimes permanent. It is caused by infection with staphylococcus aureus.

Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial skin infection caused by staphylococcus aureus or streptococcus. It is localized on the face (around the nostrils, mouth or eyes) and mainly affects children under 10 years of age. Symptoms of impetigo begin with a small red plaque on which vesicles that fill with pus appearance. Then the very fragile lesions quickly give way to yellowish crusts. We sometimes witness the multiplication of lesions, the scraping of the crusts transporting the microbe from one point to another. 

Whitlow is a very painful acute infection of the edge of the nail. It is caused by the inoculation of a germ following a small wound (splinter, bite, nails cut too short, tearing of the skin around the nail ...)Whitlow manifests itself first of all by redness around the edge of the nail most often, accompanied by swelling, a feeling of heat, and painful throbbing. Then the pain becomes permanent and pulsating. A whitish ball filled with pus then forms. Most often mild, the infection must be treated in time to avoid spreading to the tendon sheaths, joints, and finger bones.
