    Sounds like a sebaceous cyst. Many times they start out as clogged oil glands. The areas you mentioned may be tight or restricted by clothing causing sweat and irritation. May become inflamed and eventually rupture.

    Hope that helps.

    not herpes. herpes are tiny blister, fluid filled pustules. a boil would not keep coming back. get your blood tested to see if you have a bacterial infection. the doc will prescribe some tough antibiotics. in the meanwhile, flush your body clean with lots of water. get it as healthy as possible to fight the infection. you definitely have an infection. treat your outer area too, clean well with soap and water and keep it dry.

    It's a boil. There is a product called boil ease. It'll help with the pain.

    If you have one now you need to go to the doctor for a culture. This sounds alot like staff infection. My son gets them often and has to take antibiotics. If staff is not treated it could get worse. Please have it checked just to make sure.

    possibly just an occassional pimple around dirty or sweaty areas. Or could possibly be fasiculitis=hair follicle inflammation, in-grown hair.

    just suggestions!!!
