I had boil a month and some weeks ago on

I had boil a month and some weeks ago on my left lap and I took antibiotics after it opened and dried up. And now I have 3 painful boils on my right armpit. Been taking ampiclox anyway. So what could be the causes of these boils, even after I thought I have taken enough antibiotics previously. Seems my immune system is getting weak or so??

I have a genital boil that will not heal. I finished a round of antibiotics a week ago and have been soaking in hot water 3x a day and putting bactriban on it after for about three weeks now. I can t really put a bandaid on it because of where it s located. It s not really big anymore, it s almost flat but the very small hole that the pus is coming out won t close. I don t feel very confident about going back to the doctor but I don t think treating it on my own is working either. This has been a 2 month ordeal total and I can t take it anymore.

I was started on Norvasc, Micardis and Lasix about 5 months ago as beginning treatment to get blood pressure under control and alleviate fluid. The side effects that I am experiencing aside, I have started, for the last 2 months, to have constant boils, all size ranges and sometimes they open and sometimes not, they are in my RIGHT armpit only. I have 4 at this time, 1 drained, the others no. When they go away, others are already forming to replace them. This is horrible and I can t help thinking that it is not coincidental and is related to the medications. I was formally diagnosed with Left Ventricular Diastolic Heart Failure and echocardiogram confirmed Left side enlargment and left ventricle stiffening. I was not informed of a class or stage, but have have shortness of breath upon any exertion, lung fluid, liver fluid and extremities, often face and neck also. Are these boils something to do with this...or is it something I need to have checked separately. I go back to my cardiologist in about 2 weeks, but am in a lot of pain.

I had a boil on my chin about a month ago, I just thought it was a zit. At that time I was taking care of my mother who was in the hospital with MRSA. Now the boil is back and for two weeks. It hasn t came to a head and now there is another one right next to it. Tonight it started to turn purple. I haven t tried to squeeze it or anything. What should I do? I ve tried soaking it in hot water for 20 minutes 3-4 times a day.
