If you get reoccurring boil-like, cyst-like, abcess-type spots under arms, on or under breasts, groin areas, inner thighs and other places, it might be a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa. This condition is often misdiagnosed by doctors as ingrown hairs, acne and other things.
There is a lot of misinformation about this condition within the medical community and on some websites as well.

Hi. Recurring boils is also a symptom of low thyroid. To get a good official list of symptoms, go to the american medical assoc. website or the thyroid assoc. website. If you have even some of the symptoms for low thyroid, make copies of that list and the list for high thyroid too. Take one of the copies to your doctor. Give the other copies to blood relatives as this runs in families. Ask your doctor for a thyroid test and a thyroid anti-body test. I hope this helps you. Strawberry
