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:
