Boils are superficial infections with a thin layer of skin over fluid. Abscesses are generally larger and deeper than boils with redness and painful swelling over an area filled with pus. Cellulitis is an infection within the skin and the area just beneath it; the skin is red and tender.. Both Are caused by gram negative micro organism.

Furuncle is infection of hair root While cellulitis is induration of subcutaneous tissues with signs of inflammation and infection Cellulitis may be primary or secondary to infection of other components Mx broadspectrum antibiotics like amoxyclav625mg 1bd Antiinflamatory

Cellulitis indicated infection of skin and soft tissue without any pus formation. Furuncle indicated infection of single hair follicle and usually with small pus like little blisters. But, both conditions are created septic forms. Needs broad spectrum antiseptic antibiotics for recovery of both infections, if necessary With antiallergetic or antihistamines drugs.

Thank you Sir@Dr. Shivraj Agarwal .
