Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, sorry for the delay in response as I got struck in an emergency.
This is the inflammation of sweat gland most likely which is common in hot and humid climates and in patients with oily skin.
Just apply T-bact ointment twice a day and take a painkiller like Lyser-D (diclofenac and serratiopeptidase combination) twice a day along.
Painkiller intake will reduce inflammation also and help in early recovery.
This is the treatment but to avoid it in future
- apply talcom powder in that area daily
- avoid deodorant till it heals
- avoid humid climates
- wear cotton based clothes as far as possible
Take care

is there no permanent cure for this? this kinda boils are coming often. I thought its because of the heat in the body.

Brief Answer:
Precautions are the only cure

Detailed Answer:
Not really but definitely these are more common in hot climates and in people who sweat a lot.
Simple local hygiene will help a lot.
Talcum powder application in a generous amount and avoiding tight and synthetic clothes for long periods of time.
Also increase your water intake to more than at least 2 litres a day.
All the best.

Hi, I am 29 yrs old female. Few months back I started having skin sores mainly on my thighs and buttocks. initially I thought them to be heat boils and ignored few times. but they kept erupting one after the other continuously after which I visited a doctor who told me that it must be folliculitis and prescribed me antibiotics. after taking the medicine they subsided for a while and then started again. I visited the doctor again and advised me for blood tests for sugar. i have a family history of diabetes and the doctor wanted to rule out the same. As guessed my sugar levels were higher than normal. she advised me on total avoidance of sugar and everyday work out or atleast a walk. i followed it strictly for 2 months and then i could not make time for workout though i am avoiding sugar completely. i started getting those skin sores again with increased intensity. Am scared i might need to start taking medicines else this wont stop. i am scared to check my sugar levels again. Can you give me the possibilities and best solution.
