Hi! Recurrent boils are seen in a skin disease called Hidradenitis suppurativa, which presents as recurrent
boil-like pus-like discharge abscesses resulting in difficult-to-heal open wounds and scarring. It can also be
due to staphylococcal skin infections. A culture sensitivity of the pus can tell which antibiotic will best
help eradicate the infection. If your blood sugar is high as in diabetes, then too you can get recurrent
You can treat this by applying a warm cloth to the area. This encourages the pus to come to the surface, make
a mouth and drain. Once the boil has drained, the area should be washed with antibacterial soap and an
antibacterial cream applied and kept dry, bandaged and sterile. It is difficult to comment beyond this at
this stage. Do consult your doctor preferably a skin specialist. Take care!
