I have been getting infected painful boils on my inner thighs for as long as i can remember. Most times there is one/two on each leg, i have even begun geting them under my arms. They smell awful when they burst and are becoming very embarassing. Any suggestions?
Please help, the scars left by these boils are preventing me from enjoying my sex life with my husband and exposing my body to others even my family and 8yr old daughter has rarley seen me in shorts or underwear...
Have you seen a dermatologist? these sound like they could be ingrown hairs. The dermatologist can recommend something to keep the area exfoliated and prevent ingrown hairs. If you are shaving the areas then stop until you consult the dermatologist. Shaving can aggravate ingrown hairs.
