Question Depression and Boils or other skin problems?

Hi everyone,

I was just reading on some website that the cause of some boils is depression. Does anyone suffer from these?

Re: Depression and Boils or other skin problems?

Hi,

Boils are caused by staphylococcus (staph) bacteria and are contageous (spread easily from one area or person through contact with the bacteria). They definitely are NOT caused by depression or stress.

I believe you may be thinking of hives. I believe that they are psychosomatic, but are also caused by allergies of meds, drugs, foods, products...etc.

Do a check on the internet for hives. See what you come up with and if that's what you mean.
