Suggest treatment for boils appearing on the thighs & nipples

I've been suffering with boils for 17 years after the birth of my son. Usually they are on my inner thighs. they always flair up the week that I start my periiod. For the last 3 months I have been getting the boil on my nipple in the same spot. It is on a nipple that I have had waxy white substance come out before. Now it swells and pusses up. I am able to relieve it by hot compresses and after 2 days or so the greenish pus drains. I do not have health insurance and I was wondering if this is something I should worry about. Oh I am 41 years old, 5'4, 245 lbs and no bad medical history.

Hi
Thank you for writing to Health care Magic

I reviewed your history.
Recurrent boils require treatment by the use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
I would also advice you to go for evaluation to find the causes for decreased immunity which may be responsible for recurrent boils.

Do consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you. Do write to me for further questions and I will be happy to help.

Thank you
I find this answer helpful
