repeatedly getting boils on butt cheeks and inner thigh

User Profile
I have a friend who keeps getting boils on her butt cheeks and inner thigh. She's always in pain from them. She has been at the doctor's and they give her antibiotics or they have to Lance them. Nobody can give her to answer on why she's getting them all the time.

Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. Recurrent abscesses in butt cheeks and anal creases should be evaluated for pilonidal sinuses and fistulas and other local causes. Good hygiene sweat free perineum and groins and keeping area hair free will help.

I hope it helps. Please consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purpose only.
