I've lived with boils on my skin for a long time. I took bactrim for preventive measures for a couple years. I came off of it a year ago simply because my RX ran out (and I don't want to be on pills forever if I can help it). Two months ago, I went on a vegan based cleanse for 7 days. Within 2 weeks of ending the cleanse, my skin has broken out worse than ever before. I have them in my groin area, arm pits, stomach, legs, arms... everywhere!! I'm curious to know if any of you of any 'magic' on how to deal with this crap?
You are running a major infection in your body that manifests as boils. Your dr needs to culture one to find out what kind of infection and what antibiotics to treat it with. I'm not used to seeing bactrim used for skin infections.
