Question:What diseases could cause me to get sores around my neck and armpit all the time?
Answer:Weeping infections of the skin can take on many different forms, but they all look and feel most unpleasant. They will include diseases such as school sores, boils and carbuncles. School sores are caused by one or more of several differenr bacteria. The bacteria sptead easily from one person to another, and are known as school sores because of their rapid spread from one child to another in a crowded classroom. A boil or furuncle, is a localised infection of the skin, often caused by die ' Golden Staph' bacteria. It usually starts in a hair root, and appears as a rounded, red, sore lump with a centtal core of pus. They are most common on the back and neck. A carbuncle is an area of infected skin through which there are many openings for pus to escape. Unlike a boil, it is only slightly raised, but still quite red and sore. Once a sore is present, a doctor should be seen as soon as possible for an appropriate antibiotic to be prescribed.
