Boils do not necessarily have types, but some situations can occur when they are given different names.
The boil can affect regions with several hair follicles nearby and infect several of them. The nape of the neck is a frequent target of this type of multiple infection, which is now called carbuncle, in which several furuncles form a single, very painful mass, full of pus and necrosis.
Furunculosis is characterized by several boils in different places or by recurrent boils in a patient. It can be caused by scratching a boil and transporting bacteria elsewhere in the body, or by a weakened immune system.
