Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. don't worry you didn't use the medication for which your infection is sensitive. you are not expected to use steroids, which supress the infection. then again it flares. when you get a boil you get the pus tested for culture and sensitivity. which give you an idea of antibiotics to be used in order of sensitiveness. for allergy avoid brand of soap powder, and some foods like fish and brinjal. use green leafy vegetables, fruits. drink plenty of water, and juices. thank you.
