hi everyone i know exactly how you feel if u keep getting the same problems as i am. I am currently in hospital with the worst boil i have ever had and it is on my right index finger it was absolutely huge and hurt like ***l this thing constantly oozed but was getting bigger and bigger as time went by. I have been operated on and has now left a huge hole in my finger shortly after the op they realised because of the sheer size of the hole they had to do a skin graft of which they took from my lower.

This is a persistent problem and am trying to get to the bottom of as to why i keep getting them at the minute i have been told it is (STAPH) which means nothing to me so i have asked them to run more tests to find out what the ***l is going on.

I have had 15 of these things all causing excrutiating pain here are some areas i got them (index finger, buttock, kneecap most have been here, elbow right on the joint, palm of my right hand, right leg)

will post again when i get more info good luck all if u have them just go to the hospital its not worth going through all the pain.
