Suggest remedy for boil type scars in inner thigh oozing pus

I had an inner thigh lift and the scars are 10 years old (inner thigh close to the pubic hair area). At times the scar will have some larger bumps (boil type bumps) that when squeezed hard puss comes out of it. The entire scar is not really fine but bumpy all the way from top to bottom. Trying to see what I can do with this scar. Is there any topical solution that I can put on it to get rid of the bumps on this area. When I work out and if sweating, it makes that area look worst. Any recommendations. Wish I could show pictures to describe it better.

As per your query you have boil type scars in inner thigh oozing pus which occur due to the abundance of sebaceous glands in these areas. It could be due to the hair follicle and bacterial infection as well.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you wash these areas daily with lukewarm water and body wash containing salicylic acid twice a day. Apply topical antibacterial ointment. Take diet rich in multivitamins. If the condition doesn't get well in a week then consult a dermatologist for proper examination and treatment. The doctor may prescribe antibiotics like minocycline, steroid ointment and may recommend chemical peeling for marks.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

What to do after boil on the inner thigh bursts and starts bleeding ? I had dressed the area using concentrated dettol after cleansing it with diluted dettol in warm water and a washcloth. But it was burning badly so I removed the dressing. Its 1.30 am now and now I shall sleep. What measures can I take in the morning? The boil is still draining and zI have removed the dressing keeping the boil open as it was burning.

I have had a boil for 3 years would always drain and fill back up when it would drain i would squeeze it a little bit and it would spray like a hose and sometimes I would be in the bath room for an hour at a time because the boil would not stop draining. To make a long story short I have been to different doctors and even to the hospital because it swelled up the size of a base ball, the only thing anyone would do is give me antibiotics which never worked for me. I have tried every home remedy there is and I know I m going to have one heck of a scar. The boil has several openings and I have gotten other boils near it. I have suffered from boils all my life and unfortunately they are all in my thighs and private area, this puts a real damper on my personal life. About 3 months ago a black seed like thing came out of the boil along with a bunch of pus, blood and dead tissue but the boil is still filling up and draining. My question to you is, what can I do to get the boil to stop draining and is there anything I can say or do to get a doctor to cut it out? I have so many scars from having this disease all my life is there anything doctors can do? Is rhere anything i can put on it to help my scars? I need it to go away! Please help!!!
