For the past couple months I have been getting boils on my inner thigh. It is restricted to this area and the first one I thought was an ingrown hair but when I tried to squeeze it it was EXTREMELY painful. It was like a hard lump under the skin. After squeezing it, it got even bigger and the area around it became all red as well. Then it looked like there was a pouch of pus on the surface the next day and I punctured it with a needle but I couldnt drain it all out. It took several days to heal and left a purple scar. And everytime one heals, a new one comes along. What is going on?!?!
