Yes, I’ve had boils popping up in my armpits several times in a month, maybe 2x on the same part and place on my arm. At first I felt normal but over time my boils did not heal completely but only subsided and appeared again. I also sometimes use gentamicin to help heal boils that I have. The thing I want to ask is whether the boil that I suffer from is very dangerous for my health? So what steps should I take to solve it? Thank you

Hi Lydia,

Boils are inflammation of the skin caused by bacterial infection so that red bumps appear, there are white dots / pus, pain, and sometimes itching. Boils generally get better within a few days without special treatment.

However, if the boil is larger than 5cm, occurs close together, or occurs repeatedly and recurs frequently, I suggest that you consult a doctor so that further examination can be carried out to confirm the condition. The doctor will then provide further treatment for you.

Recurrence of boils can be caused because the previous infection has not completely healed. To treat boils that often recur, doctors can give oral and topical antibiotics, anti-pain, and if necessary drainage of pus fluid.

While waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:

Warm compresses on boils Do not break boils Take pain relievers if necessary Clean around boils with antibacterial soap Be careful when shaving or pulling armpit hair If boils burst, clean with NaCl solution and then apply antibiotic ointment, and if necessary cover the wound with sterile gauze, then immediately consult a doctor, yes.
