A skin abscess is caused by infection. It's normally a contamination caused by a microorganism called Staphylococcus aureus, which attacks the skin.
The body tries to prevent the contamination from spreading, so it gathers the microorganism, white blood cells and dead tissue in one spot. This makes the sore on the skin.
