    Ok most horrible moment happened earlier.
    I often get blister type things on inside of my legs, I thought this new one was just the same. But no, it was a boil! I went to the gym which was so painful! :-( then had sauna and swim. Came home I was in so much pain. My friend was with me' and she looked at it. She said it looked infected as it was black!!! :-( she's a nurse so I trust her judgement. It took me' half hour to find the guts to let her pop it with a sterilised needle and I cried so much as it hurt but then I carried on crying for about an hour after realising it was my obesity that got me' to this situation and how on earth did I let myself get like this! :-(
    Major depressed right now, I'm so so upset!

    It happens to the best of us chick. Just try to look on the positive side, at least your caring friend was there to look. If she hadn't you could have got septicemia!

    Just be thankful you caught it when you did :) x

    I used to get these all the time, also under my arms. I now have really bad scarring from it........ BUT as you lose weight they do go. I don't get them now at all. If u feel them come up, before they get too far try a bit of savlon cream.... Sometimes pop it on a cotton wool pad so it sticks there for a little while and can be absorbed, they arent always in the easiest places to apply cream to stay there!

    At least you got it chick, and you are in the right place to get is sorted now :)

We get them with stress, particularly if Im working lots an have lots on at Uni! Don't be too disheartened and blame it all on ur weight, check what's going on in ur life also ?

    That's prob the reason too then! I'm sure you are well stressed! The doctor was able to give me tablets to take for six wks an thankfully I haven't had anymore, though things have been pretty calm at the min. I'd say there is more pus inside it if it is still really red an swollen. Try putting a hot compress on it for ten mins see if u can draw anymore out. Another thing is I never cover mine after lancing them as its best to let the air heal it.

    Please go and see your doctor or your practice nurse.

    I do not want to frighten you but septicemia is very unforgiving and so unpleasant.

    Do not wait until Monday if it is still red, hard and swollen go to A&E. They would rather see you as an outpatient than see you admitted with something that has been allowed to develop beyond what is normal.

    I am not trying to panic you or over-reacting on your part, just being concerned of Spain.com

    hugs xxx

    i had a similar experience a few years ago now. A boil/cyst where a bloke doesn't particular want a boil/cyst. Being a brave (read foolish) man, I didn't want to bother the doctor.

    Eventually, I had to. I was in agony and it could not merely be "popped". There was complications as I was diabetic.

    Long story short, I went it thinking it would be lanced (I was due to go away that weekend) 2 major abdominal operations, 8 days in high-risk isolation ward and 10 days later I was was released. Not only that but had to have the whole thing drained and was rated 40-60 (against!!) survival at one point. I had to have the dressing changed and wounds cleaned every day at home until cleared (couldn't be stitched).

    3 months after this I was able to return to work. I was insulin-dependent, and thought it was only a bloody little boil!

    That scared the life out of me and I changed my entire lifestyle.

    Anyone with any lumps or bumps, boils or cysts get them checked out - especially if you're diabetic!!!
