Angry Boils!

[B]Does anyone on this board have boils all the time, if so, do know you why?
I have had boils now off & on for years, and I can't get rid of them no matter what, Doctors told me to use antibacterial soap, which I do, did not help.

Please give me some feedback on this.[/B]

Re: Boils!

Get checked for diabetes. My hubby had boils for years before the diabetes finally showed up so if you are okay now, keep watch for it.

Thank you ladybear44 for your feedback.

That was the first thing that was checked and that was normal, but they did tell me that I had peripheral neuropathy & gastroparesis which they say is very common for people with diabetes, so they are not sure what is going on
with me. So I'm going to go through a lot of testing. Those old boils hurt and I'm ready for some diagnoses, I swear I get rid of one and two more come up.

Again Thank you

Exclamation Re: Boils!

[B][SIZE="3"]Boils can be caused by poor hygiene, but in some cases can be a suppressed immune system, acne or other skin problems.[/SIZE][/B]

[I][B][SIZE="3"]For me I have very good personal hygiene[/SIZE][/B] [/I]
