Daily Health Tips: Multiple Boils

Q: Good morning Doc, I really appreciate the good work you’ve been doing in this forum. May the good Lord reward you. Now to my question, I had boils all over my body especially on my laps and private areas when I was pregnant with my first child and when it goes, it will leave white dead skin which I always made sure to peel off the ones I could see. After my delivery it stopped few days after, then appear once in a long while. When I got pregnant the 2nd time, the boils started again, accompanied by heat rashes. It’s been 4 months since my delivery but the have just refused to go. It’s everywhere even on my areola and makes breastfeeding painful. It goes when I am taking antibiotics but after the antibiotics wear off, it recurs again with d white dead skin all over. Please Doc what is the cause of the recurrent boils? I think the rashes is because of the weather. Please help. Thanks as I await your reply. Have a nice day.

A boil, also called a skin abscess, is an infection of a hair follicle deep in the skin. Boils can occur in any part of the body, but most frequently in the armpits, groin, around the vagina/anus areas, around a tooth and at the back. They are often swollen, painful, and after a few days collect as a head of pus and debris (this explains what you noticed) which can rupture on their own when soft or ‘ripe’ or may require a health expert to cut it open and drain it…
