Boil On My Buttocks
I have broken out in boils on my buttocks. As one heals another develops. They are large, hot and painful. My son also gets lots. Could it be serious?
Apply warm compress: In general, we apply heat to infections and cold to injuries. Heat draws infection fighters to the area while cold keeps blood flow away. Don't drain the boil on your own but you can help your body fight it off by signaling w/warm compresses where to focus immune systemt's defense. If it drains on its own, that's fine. But don't puncture it yourself as this may spread infection. Go see your doc. ...Read more
