Most likely it is just an aphthous ulcer or a canker sore. They are usually found on on movable tissue and self resolve after 14 days. It wouldn't hurt to get a dentist to look at it.

What medical condition causes boils to appear on your body consistantly even on the paraneal area. Rash on testicles have taken antibiotics and use skin creams, noting has seem to work..please help

It

It sounds as though you may have a skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by Staphylococcus Aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by MRSA, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. No one knows why some people are susceptible to getting boils while others are not. There is a type of neutrophil-associated immune deficiency that can predispose you to boils, so it might be worth getting tested. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should go to your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develops fever, chills, or feels ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Some doctors also advocate bathing once a week with a 1/4 cup of bleach in a half-full bathtub or washing with chlorhexadine to decrease the bacterial count on your skin. You may also want to consider using intranasal bactroban twice a day for a month to eliminate the staph bacteria living in your nose. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. Good luck!

Hi.I am having small white boils and skin tag like growths on my foreskin.I have tested negative for hsv syphillis and gonohrreh.please advice?

See a dermatologist

Hpv
The foreskin is not a common place for skin tags. Two possibilities are molluscum and warts. If the diagnosis is not clear from a physical examination, a small biopsy can be done to confirm. Both of these are viral infections of the skin and can be sexually transmitted. Until you figure out what these are, please use a condom with your partner.

Can you tell me is there any antibiotics for boils?

Boil

Open-uri20140322-29543-1v1sjp9
Boils are referred to as abscesses, in the medical community. They can occur from breaks in the skin, which provide a route of infection for bacteria to form an abscess (collection of pus/infection). When this happens, you may need to see a medical provider who may need to prescribe you antibiotics or incise and drain the abscess. Incision and drainage is preferable over antibiotics however.

Glutathione

Antibiotics
This product which claims to improve skin and promote resistance to infection is not likely to interfere with antibiotics being taken for boils, but no guarantees.

How can I stop the spread of boils? What antibiotic is safe for lactating moms like me?

...

Boil
Boils are typically caused by the bacteria called staphylococcus aureus (MRSA and MSSA). It is usually spread through contact with someone’s skin or personal items (towels, razors, etc). To prevent MRSA wash your hands often, keep cuts covered, and don't share towels or razors. Treatment of boils can include drainage and antibiotics depending on the sensitivity of the bacteria isolated.

My first daughter has boils that have persisted and affected my second daughter after using several antibiotics and peniccilin. How can I treat this.?

Boils

Antibiotics
Staphylococcal infection is a common cause of recurrent boils. Other family members may carry it on the skin without symptoms and pass it around. Need to find out the exact cause of it. Your physician can culture the pus. If Staphylocoocal infection is confirmed discuss with your PCP about treatment options to try to eradicate Staphylococcus from skin
