I used to get horrid boils on my under arms when I was a kid.. and I switched deodorant to something that didn't have Aluminum zirconium in it, and they went away. I still have big scars from those nasty lil buggars, but at least they're gone. I used to get them between my legs as well, I was a really overweight kid, and once I lost the weight, the leg ones went away. I randomly get them on the top of my hoo-ha. but none have appeared until recently. id say at the beginning of the month, I saw one down there and im like 'well F.' so I used a warm compress before bed, and I woke up the next morning and it appeared to be going away. so I shaved the area clean just to make sure no ingrown hairs got in or near it. and I figured it would drain on its own. The past couple days, I've had 3 giant ones appear, and 2 small ones. what the literal F. they are SO painful! one drained on its own, and the others will NOT go away. I did a warm compress last night thinking it would help, and it did nothing. I stopped using anti bacterial soap, because I hear it was bad for your skin? but I cant stand the perfume scented frilly body soap, I feel like its not cleaning my body. after this painful outburst, I think i'll switch back. I cant believe I have 5, this is insane. I completely changed my diet back in January to really healthy, and ive kept with it. I guess diet has no impact on these things.. and I wear really loose clothes at work, so what could be causing them?! I'm going to try that ointment from rite aid y'all are saying, because im sick and tired of these damn things.
