Very Painful BOILS, inner-thigh?

It started as a single pimple-like boil and got as big as a can lid. It was very tight and was in my inner thigh RUBBING between my legs when I walked or even breathed. NOW it's 4 separate Boils, some oozing pus while others are tight as a drum with pain. The entire area is about the size of my skull cap.:eek:

Some are scabbing over but they are still under tremendous pressure. This is a complete nighmare. I've had pnumonia and the flu before and I'd rather have BOTH than this boil condition.

Doctor gave me anti-biotic CIPRO and I don't know if it is working or even if that was an appropriate one for this condition. The doctor diagnosed this by me 'telling him' what it looked like, he never even saw the boils areas.

I've been putting almost a half tube of anti-biotic cream on the area everyday and I should own stock in that company.

I basically cannot walk short distances without immense and intense amount of pain, the kind of pain compared to a broken bone or gunshot wound. I can't even sit in a chair and it hurts. The PRESSURE is so great, I want to POP these boils and I'VE TRIED!:mad:

Does anyone know what in the ***l this is? Will it get better or go away? What should I do for treatment? Why does God hate me?:mad:

  • Well, he should scrape one and run it through the lab; it could be herpes or a staph infection. Try another doctor...or go back and have him run it through the lab..maybe syphilis, but you need to rule out the other two..

  • run your symptoms through this and buy a bottle of what comes up as the best for you, 30 X http://abchomeopathy.com/go.phpThat seems to be a commercial money making website:mad:?I entered BOIL and it suggested like 20+ remedies but I already done those treatments myself like gooops of antibiotic creams and CIPRO 1,000MG 4 times daily for 30 days.Thanks though I guess?:confused:If anyone can help me for a treatment for my BOILS ON MY INNER THIGH I would be most happy. The affected area is about 10 sq. inches or as big as your entire hand fully opened.I now have DEEP permanent scares where some BOILS have went down but other BOILS have taken there place just to the side. If I have staphacocllus infection then I bet I'll lose a 3 inch thick deep piece of skin soon via surgical methods to cure me of this bacterias.I'd really like some help from somebody here. I'm already take a MEGA DOSE of CIPRO as it is, been taking the CIPRO for 12 days and have about 18 days remaining of the CIPRO. I hope the staphaccoculus infection doesn't reach my main blood area since I read that kills people in just a few days and I don't want to die, not from this anyway.Anyway, if someone else can help please do??:confused:

Sorry to be negative but this life seriously does suck..maybe i'll die from staph infection and be done with this cruel life.:(thanks for trying to help me with my running pressured boils on my body.I get these all the time usually the hotter and humid it is:I would like to say you have an in grown hair or more that is causing the boil and in the inner thigh area is a lot of friction get some Epsom salt very cheap and soak in it every night until it opens and goes away. Take raw bacon with gauze and put it on it at night. It will draw the core out and fall out while you sleep. I see that your attitude is messed up.

  • Sounds like you have Hidradenitis Suppurativa based on what you have said but I could be wrong. Do you get them anywhere else or is this the only place you have had them?

  • hey darlin, hows it going?okay, i have had the EXACT same thing for a long time now. let me give ya a few helpful hints and tips: dermatologist = no results, at least not mine. i have tried EVERYTHING from way expensive "medicated" cream to orajel, and nothing worked, UNTIL about two weeks ago. my parents were talking w/ me about it and we got two things at the store, that have worked WONDERS on my legs.1. Cetaphil anti-bacterial bar soap2. Gold Bond powder.if you take a shower and wash throughly with the soap, then gently dry the legs, put the powder on the bumps and go sit somewhere with them open (sorry, a little weird), for a while...i promise, my legs were so bad i was gonna have to go to the ER possibly, but this has cleared them up! i hope this helps, and good luck.
