Why there are abscesses on skin?
The reasons of emergence of abscesses on a body can be the following: skin injuries through which the infection, the general decrease in protective forces of an organism, frequent colds, disturbances of a metabolism, the administration of drugs oppressing immunity gets to an organism. Also abscesses on different parts of a body appear owing to influence still of some factors described below.
White abscesses in a throat appear at an adenoid disease, one of stages of which is the inflammation of almonds. Unlike symptoms of purulent quinsy, at an adenoid disease initially there are abscesses in a throat without temperature. But if timely treatment was not undertaken, the condition of the patient can be aggravated. In spite of the fact that at an adenoid disease abscesses on tonsils without temperature are observed, this disease often is the indication to removal of almonds. However sometimes abscesses on almonds without temperature manage to be cured in the conservative way. A course of special washings is for this purpose conducted, measures are taken for immunity strengthening.
Quinsy provokes strong rise in temperature, at the same time to the person the throat hurts. How to treat quinsy, only the doctor after carrying out inspection has to solve.
