Boils anyone? At least twice a year I end up with boils, normally at a surgeons to have lanced. The last one was lanced, cut out and lanced again, the entire time for this to heal due to all of the cutting was 2.5 months. Yes I said months. I am now leary of going to the doctors this time because of that experience and yet I know I need too. I have been checked to confirm I am not a carrier of MRSA which could cause these at this frequency. The only answers I am now receiving is that it is because of my diabetes. I am so tired of my diabetes being blamed for things when my doctors don't know. They say I need to get to them sooner to to stop their growth., how ever the current one looked like a little pipple last nightand by this morning was 3 inches in diameter. So everytime I get a pimple somewhere other than my face I am to run to the doctors...I can't take these anymore....Please HELP!!! I am a Type 1 Diabetic, and my thighs front, back, inner and outer are covered with scars from all of these over the past 6 years.
