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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 1 year old has a boil on her bottom and it popped and puss comes out then it closes and reopens and bleeds a lot. What can I do to help it go away?
Warm soaks: The main treatment for a boil is to open and drain the pus, but if it closes and reopens, it may need more effective incision and drainage which your doctor or surgeon can do. Warm compresses help the body to bring the infection to the surface. Depending on the size of the boil, your doctor may also choose to obtain cultures and Rx with antibiotics. Please see a doctor. I hope it clears soon. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Incise & drain: The definitive treatment for a boil is incision and drainage. Try soaking the foot in hot water to see if it will drain on its own. If not, it will have to be lanced, but don't attempt this yourself - it will hurt too much and you run the risk of making things worse, particularly on the sole of the foot. Let a doctor do it under the proper sterile conditions, with an anesthetic. ...Read more

Are all boils in need of medical treatment? I noticed one on my 2yr olds bottom today for the first time. I bathe him regularly
Boils: Unfortunately, we can't make definitive statements about "all boils". Whether to seek treatment depends upon health of individual as well as intensity of infection. Small pimple might respond to just warm compresses while larger abscesses in diabetics most likely would require lancing (incision & drainage aka I&D) plus antibiotics.

Should i be worried about bump on breast? I have a small bruised bump on my bottom right breast. It does not hurt unless im wearing my bra or if i apply pressure to it. When i touch it it feels soft i thought it might be a boil but im not sure.
Any : Any breast lesion should be evaluated by a doctor. If it is infectious then you will need antibiotic treatment. If the diagnosis is unclear then you may need an ultrasound or even a mammogram depending on your doctors findings. If in fact it is just a bruise (hematoma) then it will go away in time. An anti-inflammatory like advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen can help with the healing process and with pain. Good luck. ...Read more
