Recurring Boils
Hi, last week i had about 30 boils. Went to the doctor and had strong antibiotics. They cleared up. My thighs became very sore (inside) and now it looks like a boil is reappearing. My bones are very sore. I have thrush in my mouth constantly too.

Hallo Lisa
It sounds to me as if your immunity is seriously impaired - please let your doctor check your full blood count and also do a HIV test if you think you are at risk for HIV. This can also be caused by using chemotherapy or high doses of cortisone.
