Boils are an infection of the skin that usually start from an ingrown hair but may result from a sweat gland or even a splinter. The infected area usually reddens, becomes tender and a pus filled center core forms as the body fights the infection with white blood cells. The most common is a deep staph (bacterium staphylococcus aureus) infection forming a single infected area. There are other types of boils including cystic acne which is similar to the acne common to teenage years but penetrates deeper into the skin.
A carbuncle is the same staph infection as a boil but it has multiple cores or is a cluster of boils.
