The most common cause is a bacteria - usually staphylococcus aureus, because the blisters can also be interpreted as a local infection on the skin. Originally just an infected hair follicle, but because of friction, irritation, and less net body treatment, the infection can spread to surrounding tissue, and become ulcers. Initially the cause can also be due to ingrown hairs, cuts, or the entry of foreign objects into the skin.

Abscess usually begins with red bumps and soft on the skin area, which over time will become harder. Then in the middle of the lump will form a white top - that will break down or be removed by a doctor (through a minor surgical procedure). The liquid that comes out is called pus, containing white blood cells (which sent the body to fight bacteria that infect the skin area), bacteria and proteins.
