Posted last week as I had a boil on my groin, I applied magnum sulphate at it cleared quickly, last night another boil appeared near my anus, this is the 3rd boil in a month and the most painful. I can hardly sit. Im not sure if it warrants a doctors appointment? I have never had them before this so I'm wondering what's causing them?
I would speak to your gp, yes. There’s a condition called hydradenitis supperativa that can develop in the groin area, and boils can also be a symptom of type 2 diabetes. It could just be one of those random things though!
I'm wondering if I'm just a bit run down? Have had mouth ulcers this week too, hoping it's nothing. Will go and see my gp or nurse tomorrow and maybe get my bloods checked, just really don't want to go and get my bum out for the doctor .
I've followed you over here. Definitely try the silica tablets, I went through a stage of having bartholins cysts just randomly popping up. These tablets would get rid of them before they turned too nasty.
Get checked out at the doctors, I'm pretty sure they will test for everything with no need to go to the sexual health clinic. You might just be really run down.
I went to the gp, have been given some body wash and anti viral meds (in case it's a viral thing), booked in for blood tests to check for diabetes. I have to go back in a couple of days of no better to possibly get it lanced. I'm off work today so it's 'mission get boil to burst', I'm led on the sofa with my legs in the air and warm compress on my bottom. Still very painful.
It's so bloody painful isn't it..... Not helped by the area they decide to pop up in 😔. I had an appointment booked to get it lanced but it burst before hand, it got to the point of such pain I was eyeing up sharp objects thinking sod it I'll sort it myself. Good luck with it!!
