Hello, i have been getting boils in my groin area and thighs for about 4 years now. i have gone to my dr many many times. I have had blood tests to rule out diabeties. they have never taken a swap from me even when i have gone with boils in full swing but nothing is done. They now say there is nothing i can do about. i just get them im jst unlucky. I dont buy this and was pee'd off when the dr said you just got to live with them. anyone who suffers with boils knows how painful these can be and being told i had to live with it is not an option. i did some looking up online and found out about HS. (hidradenitis suppurativa) i told my dr this as i fits perfect and she laughed at me and said i may have staplycoccal carrage. ( sorry about spelling). so i looked it up online and i just does not fit with me. so im asking if anyone else has any ideas. all i have been given by drs is shower cream to help with itch. I always have them they never go just keep spreading all round my bikini line, thighs and groin. i have two or three at a time all the time. and now i seem to be getting small cysts under my arm pits. Can anyone out there help me or give me some advise as i feel compleatly let down by my drs. As i said this is been going on for nearly five years. I cant wear underwear and dont want to go out. this is making me very depressed i need help. thank you for reading. i hope someone will reply.
