I’ve had recurring boils on my face for 7 years now, I get them mainly on my chin but get them on other parts of my face & my shoulders. I’ll get a chin boil at least twice a month, usually after I come off my period. They can be bigger than a 50p and will swell up changing the shape of my face. They can’t be hidden, I usually wear a scarf to cover it if I can.
I can’t cope anymore & im at the point where I’d be happy to just not exist.
They last a week & then scab for another so I don’t really get a break from it.
The doctors are not good, they keep giving me creams & different antibiotics, I had one I took for 8 weeks but couldn’t do anymore as they made me unwell & gave me thrush.
I asked the doctor if they could test me or my skin to find out what is causing it but they said they can’t do it. I don’t even know 100% that they’re boils, it could be cystic acne.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing it?
Who do I go & see for some advice or to have tests done? A dermatologist or a private gp? I’m so lost & really just can’t deal with this anymore, I don’t know what to do. I couldn’t afford expensive treatment but I might be able to afford a monthly thing. Any advice would be great.
