I keep getting skin abscess/boils. I've had several surgeries to have them removed. Any suggestions on how to prevent them?

Mupirocin

Boil
Talk to your doctor about treating the inside of your nose with mupirocin ointment. Staph aureus, which is responsible for most boils, is carried in the front part of the nose. You can also wash several times a week with Hibiclens in the shower.

Dr. Hanul Bhandari answered:

Is there anything that I can do to prevent/cure restless leg syndrome? It affects my legs and arms and is interfering with my sleep. Thanks!

See below

Sleep
If you are experiencing restless legs syndrome (RLS) that is causing sleep disruption, please see a sleep medicine specialist to determine if it is truly RLS and to adequately treat it. RLS can affect the arms, but it is not as common as the legs. Until then, try to keep hydrated, do gentle leg stretches prior to bedtime, avoid caffeine, and try to regularize your bedtime. Hope that helps!

This may be hidradenitis suppurative which should be addressed at once, or any of several other skin problems.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

I get boils under my arms and in my groin area, what can i use to get rid of those for good?

Antibiotic

Diabetes
Boils are purulent bacterial infections of hair follicles, groin and axilla are conductive to multiple/recurrent infections due to excessive moisture. Infection in the axilla and groin may need antibiotic treatment and removal of ingrown hair, if present. If the boils are recurrent you should get checked out for predisposing factors like diabetes or immune deficiency.
