For a few years now I keep having recurring boils on my bottom and groin area. I have spoken with my doctor several times now but continues to tell me to change my diet. I am very healthy and eat properly. I have exhausted all of my options and can not prevent them. I am sick and tired of being in so much pain and it is starting to effect my relationship.
I too had your problem. For years also. Antibiotics didn't help much, so my doc told me to stop wearing underwear, panties, and I haven't had one since. I feel weird with undies on now, I do wear my bra and powder up with cornstarch in sweaty areas.
There you have it. Hope it works for you.
There is also the possibility that you have a bacteria in the system that makes them recur. The drainage of a boil should be cultured to see if that is the case. The lady I was taking care of had them, and we sent a speciman of the drainage and it turned out she had MRSA and we got her on antibiotics and they stopped.
