I get boils under my breast physician thinks it is Mrsa could I die from that?

Unlikely

Mrsa
Mrsa is generally a skin infection and will not kill you unless it gets into the bloodstream, which means that these skin infections need attention when they happen and you need to discuss prevention with a doctor.

I get boils under my breast ,underarms and underwear line and also on my leg by my underwear line.what is it?what do i do to get rid of them?

Hidradenitis?

It sounds like you might have Hidradenitis suppurativa, which is a condition where sweat glands become chronically infected, forming boils or abscesses. It commonly occurs in the armpits and groin but can happen in other places also. You need to see a doctor for this. Treatment can include chronic antibiotics and sometimes even surgery.

I have a boil under my breast , I went to the doctor she gave me antibiotic , it's still there and draining for about 2 mos. isn't this too long .

Yes

Antibiotics
You need to be reevaluated, recultured and the antibiotic changed appropriately and perhaps undergo some surgical drainage.

how can i treat boils/abcess on my bum, in between my legs/groin area, under my breasts and under arms?

See Dermatologist

Groin
For a single boil, you can do sitz baths where you soak in the bath tub for 10 minutes 1-2x/day and this usually helps. However, what you are describing sounds like Hidradenitis suppurativa. See http://mayocl.in/PYZA6t . I would recommend that you see a dermatologist for treatment as you may need antibiotics and/or other treatments.

I have a rash that resembles boils all over my sides, breasts and back. There are about 50 of them. Very painful. What should I do?

Boil rash on side

Open-uri20130308-28290-1s2s6fr
What you describe may be shingles(herpes zoster) I doubt they are boils. Shingles are very painful and go around usually on one side of your body. See your doctor because early treatment is very important to prevent complications.

i have two boils on my breasts and one on my stomach, they are purple/black and have been there for 2months approx. this is not the first time. ?

Necrotic tissue

Mrsa
This may represent dead (necrotic) tissue that is sometimes seen with infection with community acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylocccicus aureus, (CA-MRSA) . Have yourself seen by a medical professional to have these incised and drained; antibiotics may be given to "mop up" the infection.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Best way to get rid of boils/cysts from labia lips and boils from breasts? They don't hurt an I don't know u got them till I wash myself or check.

Exam

Breast_cancer
I would definitely get an exam from a doctor for both of these areas. Boils or cysts on breasts ALWAYS need to be examined to rule out breast cancer. A boil is typically an infection, a cyst may or may not be, thus treatment is different for each. But definitely get an exam as wouldn't want to miss anything important. Good luck!
