I have horrible problems with boils. Not only are they very painful they also affect me mentally. My boils are in the groin area, more specifically 90% of them are on my left labia over to the area where the elastic of my panties lays. I have 7 at last count. I've been suffering with these for 25 years. I've followed all the directions my doctors have given me to treat them. I even had 2 drained on the same day without any anesthetic. I nearly passed out from the pain. My doctor packed the draining boils with gauze and sent me home. The next month they were back again. I am at a point where I don't know what to do anymore. I don't have much faith in doctors as far as treating boils goes. The boils can be so very painful when they flair up that I cannot sit down without doing it very, very gingerly. It's agony to even move at times. I wish I had a magic wand..
I’ve had boils my whole life and they seem to get worse. I’ve always felt like there was something wrong with me, but it is normal for some people. The quickest way I’ve found to get rid of them is some antibiotic ointment and a bandage, and let it do the rest..
