I have been having boils that will go away and return in a different area on the breast. i have large breast and have never had this condition until about 6 months ago. when i first got a boil i thought it was a pimple and popped it and cleaned it with peroxide. it does not go away, it just scabs over and of course i pick at the scab. about every other week another one appears, my question is when should i contact my doctor?
