Carbuncle is an acute inflammatory nodule of the skin caused by bacterial invasion into the hair follicles or sebaceous gland ducts. It is actually a boil, but one that has more than one focus of infection, i.e., involves several follicles or ducts. Carbuncles occur more often in men because of their more extensive body hair growth.
A bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus infects an area under the skin or in a hair follicle. The infection can occur when a cut, wound, friction, pressure, or moisture forces the bacteria deeper into the skin or hair follicle
Antibiotics commonly used are flucloxacillin and erythromycin.
