Boils, pimples and blackheads on bikini line, inner thighs and bum, painful, leave scars and holes on bursting. Cause and cure?

I get boils, pimples and blackheads on my bikini line, inner thighs and bum. They are painful and often take a week or two before forming a pussy head and bursting. It is embarrasing and have around 10 at any time. once they burst i am left with holes and have many dark purple/red scars coving the whole area. What are these and how an i get rid of them?

Hi, N.marie,
Thanks for query.
Common cause for having boils,pimples are fungal infection or hair follicle infection.
Due to itching there is infection leading to boils,bump.
So if you got fungal infection,go for treatment and you will be alright.
Apply triple action cream on the part.
At present go for antibiotic medicines for 3-5 days to clear infection,
Keep local hygiene clean,dry and airy.
Ok and bye.

. Firstly, I m a 46 yr. old female whose been under an extreme amount of stress lately and having some trouble sleeping the entire night, often waking in a sweat. I’m having hunger pains more often than usually lately and a sweet tooth I can’t seem to curb. I then become very lethargic after I eat no matter the amount of food, i.e. full meal or snack, and most of the time I have to take a nap or I find myself nodding off at work. I ve been also experiencing breakouts of acne about twice a month. I have a history of a hyperthyroid and my family has a history of diabetes, but my blood sugar seems to test normal. Could this be the onset of menopause or possibly Type II Diabetes?

Hi, I have a brief question. How do I get rid of inverted blackheads? The dirt and excess oil build up seems to be very deep in my pores and I am unable to squeeze anything out as one might do with a regular blackhead. There is a little black hole with a small hard surrounding area. Should I see a dermatologist or are there solutions I can try at home?
