    Why do I keep getting boils?

    I keep getting what I was told were boils in my armpit and under my breasts. One under my arm keeps seeping and looks as though it has a tiny hole in it.  It will itch, get red and then look fine sometimes, but I feel the lumps under the skin.

    When you notice changes in the skin, it is important to see a doctor. It could be a sign of cancer (you can be any age and get cancer) or it could be another type of infection but it should definitely be looked at. Good Luck


    *I have a boil under my arm right now and am waiting for it to burst and if I get another one, I will definitly be seeing a doctor*


    I don't think you should be worried that it is an STD, sounds like a bacterial infection but you never know w/the human body because there are so many things to irritate the skin
