Boils are a condition where there is an infection of the skin tissue. Boils can occur anywhere on the body. Boils can cause a feeling of lumps, pain, swelling, and accompanied by discharge of pus (pus).
Boils that are large enough to make the leg feel painful and swollen can expand. But usually the boil itself rarely causes swelling of the entire leg.
if you have swelling all over your leg and it is very painful then it may be due to a deep vein obstruction (DVT). DVT is a condition where there is blockage of deep vein flow, usually occurs in the legs and occurs in people with old age. DVT can be dangerous, because the blockages in these veins can escape and block other organs such as the lungs or the heart. DVT often occurs in people who have risk factors such as smoking, old age, high cholesterol, diabetes. Severe DVT can cause swelling of the entire leg, pain, redness, and in an advanced state, there may be visible injuries to the feet.

Therefore, it is recommended that you immediately see a doctor, so that the doctor can check your condition directly first and later the doctor can provide the right therapy for you. If the cause is due to boils, the doctor will give you certain antibiotics. It is important not to scratch the boil, avoid using any drugs.
