A skin abscess is a pocket of pus just under the surface of an inflamed section of skin. It’s usually triggered by a bacterial infection.
Abscess drainage is the treatment typically used to clear a skin abscess of pus and start the healing process. Smaller abscesses may not need to be drained to disappear.
An abscess doesn’t always require medical treatment. Milder abscesses may drain on their own or with a variety of home remedies.
You may be able to help a small abscess start to drain by applying a hot, moist compress to the affected area. This may also help reduce swelling and start the healing.
At some point in life, most people will have experienced a condition called a boil (also known as an abscess or furuncle). Draining these painful skin infections can be tricky and is typically best left to a medical professional.
