I am 22 years old, female, living in Kansas... In the last year I've had issues with boils popping up around my very private area, which is the most uncomfortable spot to get them.
The only health service I can get are through Indian Health Services & the doctor I saw about this issue is a pediatrician, so I already knew she didn't know much about the topic.
She gave me ointment that is supposed to heal the boils, but only seems to make them bigger & hurt a lot more; and she also gave me pills to take for ten days (which I didn't take because they were way to big; horse pills, and I have issues taking pills as it is)
My only wish is that they would have popped up on any other part of my body. If anyone can tell me how to prevent them quickly, and little pain, I would greatly appreciate it!
