Boils over underarms could be due to various reasons.get a bloodworkup done for CBC,ESR,Mantoux and pus culture and sensitivity from the wound swab.Treatment is given accordingly.Try using a Betadine wash twice daily and continue with the same antibiotic with T.Metrogyl400mg thrice daily for 5 days and topical T.Bact cream and Nadoxin1% cream once daily for 5 days and report to me with the results.
