Boils On Inner Buttocks
Reoccurring boils on inner buttocks in the same place, would hair removal help or prevent new ones from occurring?
Why do I have reoccurring boils on inner buttocks? No staph. 24, f, smoker, no children, married. They never pop on their own. Have to get them lanced.
Colonization: You may have staph colonization of the nose or other areas. See a physician to culture the lesions and start an oral antibiotic and topical bactroban (mupirocin) ointment. These boils can occur from friction and sweating as well, so wear loose clothing during exercise and shower immediately afterwards with hibiclens or dial. Use bactroban (mupirocin) one week each month on nostrils and fingernails. See a dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I be sure I don't have staph? Had boil on inner buttocks lanced&sent to lab to test for staph. It came back negative. I have reoccurring boils. Why?
Negative?: Context may be missing- 1) you may not have mrsa, but you may still have "staph", 2) not all boils are caused by staph, but others can also be involved such as fecal bacteria that grows in the absence of oxygen (anaerobes). 3) if you were on antibiotics against staph when the boil is lanced, a negative culture can occur. If possible, get a copy of the culture result.
Reoccurring boils on inner buttocks. Lesion cultured negative for staph.24/f/smoker/married. Laser hair removal helps but what's causing this?
Further cultures: There are other organism that can cause skin abscesses other than staph. For instance if you've been in a pool you could have picked a pseudomonas infection. Further vulturing may be necessary.

See: See dermatologist for evaluation and to discuss treatment options.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Staphylococci: Are common causes of this, sometimes mrsa.
Not likely.: Millions of people have these and very very few ever die, but it would be a horrible way to go. Boils in this area can get out of hand and require surgery. They are more of a major nuisance than life threatening.
What are some basic and easy home remedies for treating boils and cysts? I have them all over my buttocks area, they are in pain and itch.
See your doctor.: There are no easy home remedies for treating these. It sounds like you are contaminating yourself as you scratch. One may be infected and you scratch and infect another area. You may need these lanced and antibiotic treatment. Wash your hands frequently and do not scratch. These can be come serious.
