my girl and i both broke out in boils, not bumps,...boils. Hers came 2 days before mine. There is no fever, or red lines. Symptoms point to HS but that can't be passed from person to person. I had one large and five smaller ones pop up on my legs, the big one was on my belt-line. Two weeks later, mine were almost all gone with very little scaring. Hers have spread, legs and now back side and groin. We both did the same things for treatment but I used hydrogen paroxied and she used the stuff they use on kids cuts, I cant think of the name but it's like ouch-less cut cleanser. We both did the Holy grail thing, Tumerik and Te Tree oil. I am so upset I cant spell right.
What could this be?
We broke out over a month ago? Could it be staff even without fever ex...
please help
