How to prevent boils on upper thighs between legs?
Q: I have been getting boils on my upper thighs since I became overweight and my thighs rub together. The doctor long time ago told me that it was a form of staph infection and that I would have to be on a round of antibiotics and it would take a very long time to get rid of my body. Well for health reason I can not be on those antibiotics because of another unrelated medicine I have to be on. They are usually very big and painful. What home remedies that you have used AND worked if you suffer from these? I do workout and have lost weight. I do not sit in wet clothing or overly sweat. I do sit at a desk all day, and I sit with my legs apart as much as possible to let the air get to them. I have used powders to help with sweating, but like I said, I dont sweat(only when working out).I try not to pop them and force more of the infection into the body but when it hurts so bad and can cause me to walk funny, I want relief!Help!
A: I have to say my sister and family suffers from this. Lack of vitamins E and D . Also from over active sweat glands. So dont pop them. You can put heat ...(hot pad) to help them. You want to take vitamin e and Acidophilus. Its a bacteria that you get from shaving or when you sweat. You want to heal the insides, Take Vitamin E. Then acidophulius has pro biotics...which take away bad bacteria. I hope this help, know one has actually come up with a clear answer. Not even doctors, so i researched it this what i came up with. The combination of the two helps.
I seem to get alot of boils under my breasts and between my thighs, any ideas how to avoid them ?
Q: I seem to get alot of boils under / on my breasts and between my thighs. I know they are associated with diabetes but not so in my case. I shower every day, but of course this does not prevent them. They grow hard and painful under the skin, marble sized to walnut size but never come to a head. What is going on and why me ? Thanks.
A: So sorry to hear that you have to go through this. Boils are very painful and I've had them for over 5 years now in the same places you mentioned. In order for them to feel better you'll have to use a warm compress, sit with your legs spread eagle (looks funny but works) or hold your breast up (wherever the boil is) and keep the compress on it. Do that for about 3 days and it should come to a head then pop on its own. Once it does, make sure you have a covering on it because it will make a mess if you don't. That is when the boil will drain and you'll feel relief instantly once that happens. Although what I wrote above will make it feel better you still need to see a dermatologist for them to give you the proper antibiotics. If you have a "fresh" boil, they can drain it and take a culture to see what type of infection you have. Once the infection is gone then use Hibiclens soap (you can find it in any drug store) it's in a small blue bottle (like peroxide) when you take a shower. I've been using it and haven't had any boils since. Just be careful to only use it from your shoulders down. Use it under your breasts as well so those don't come back. I hope this information helps. Any other info you might need on the subject feel free to e-mail me. Good Luck to you!!
