Liquefaction: If you had a boil and now it appears to have blood inside, it's quite possible the germs have caused some localized liquefaction or damage to the tissues. I wonder also if you may have squeezed it and caused some localized trauma. These boils can become worse, so you may need to see a doctor for that to get some antibiotics and or surgical (lancing) treatment. Staph causes alot of these BTW. ...Read more

Why do I keep getting boils on my bottom. There really painful and I also have these kind of spots with blood in and after there squeezed it weeps?

Wrong treatments: Recurrent infections mean that the original infections were not eradicated or you keep exposing the area to the same causes. If recurrent, then you may have chronically infected cysts which need removal. Simply opening them does not get rid of the infected parts. Squeezing is bad as it "injects" the infection deeper into the tissues. A surgeon needs to help get rid of these. Enough antibiotics! ...Read more
