Boils arise when areas of skin containing hair follicles are exposed to friction and perspiration. Small ones may resolve with warm compresses. Larger ones need incision and drainage of pus. She should probably see a doctor. ...Read more

And within 7 days recurrent herpes would go from red bumps to blisters or open sores or scabs. If the bumps are in an area where you shave, folliculitis (hair follicle inflammation, ingrown hairs) is a good bet. See a doctor if they persist or if you remain concerned. ...Read more
