Recurring boil on scrotum. Gets swollen, pus, blood comes out on bursting. Reason and cure?

My husband has a boil I am assuming on his scrotum . The problem is it comes and goes. It will get real swollen and festered and bust pus and bloody mixture will come out and then it will go away for a while. Then it will return within weeks or sometimes days. What causes this and is there a treatment for this? Lildeb1069@aol. Com

hi there, what you have described sound like a furuncle or it could be a sebaceous cyst. Get your husbands blood sugars done. A furuncle is infectioon of a hair follicle and usually it is aggravated by diabetes. He will need a course of antibiotics to take care of it. If it is a sebaceous cyst then you will need to to visit a doctor and see if it can be excised so that it does nto recur. Either case do visit a doctor and let him take a look at it and decided a course of treatment. Take care.
