Hello, I Have been suffering from boils problem for the last 5 years. The breakout is on the face, neck, chest, underarms, buttocks, and genital area. The boils tend to grow bigger combining one or two nearby boils and is extremely painful. The old boils also have left a black scar on the spot where they occurred, and many of the boils reoccur on the same spot. Most on the Buttocks, face, underarms and genital area. I also suffer from Diabetes and Gout, which was diagnosed just few months back. I haven't visited any doctor yet as i thought this was hormonal. Kindly let me know the next course of action or any medications that I need to start. Also please advise on how to get rid of those black scar on the face and other areas. Thank You.
