Introduction: A carbuncle is an abscess in the skin caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. It usually involves a group of hair follicles and is therefore larger than a typical furuncle, or boil. A carbuncle can have one or more openings onto the skin and may be associated with fever or chills. Boils and carbuncles are painful, pus filled bumps that form under skin when bacteria infect and inflame one or more of hair follicles.
Symptoms: Swollen, red lump deep in the skin, may “weep” or ooze clear fluid, or develop a crust, may spread to surrounding skin, creating a carbuncle, cause fever and chills or other symptoms, heal more slowly, scar the skin.
Current research: For carbuncles and boils, a warm compress may be used to help promote drainage of the lesion, surgical incision (making an opening in the skin overlying the infection) and drainage of the pus. Geographical analysis: In India mortality rate due to Boils and Carbuncles is 14,428.
Without immediate treatment, you can have permanent vision loss. These symptoms may be caused by retinal detachment, retinal tear, bleeding within the eye. Eye floaters, when seen usually appear to have some slight. They generally appear to dart away when you try to focus on them. Eye floaters can appear in many different shapes, such as black or gray dots, squiggly lines, threadlike strands, which can be knobby and semi-transparent, cobwebs, ring shaped.
It pulls away from the retina and it is often the areas of previous attachment to the retina which are seen as floaters as they now float freely in the vitreous gel. Most eye floaters and spots are harmless and merely annoying. Many will fade over time and become less bothersome. Sometimes people are interested in surgery to remove eye floaters, but doctors are willing to perform such surgery only in rare instances when vision seriously is hampered.
