Hello. I am 19 years old soon to be 20 next month. I am currently in the US Navy. Up until a year and a half ago which is when I went to boot camp I never had any problems was rarely sick, a healthy man if you will. Now a year and a half since boot camp, I find myself getting skin boils or abscess' on my skin in various places. They do not get much bigger than a dime or nickel in size and usually form a head which I can squeeze the pus out. After several days, they subside and go away. It seems like I get one or 2 every month and its very annoying and painful at times. None of them have been so sever in which they need Lansing I can take care of them on my own, however, I want to know whats going on? I don't have diabetes, the Navy would have found that out already, what could be the problem what can I do? I was told by a friend who had a friend with this problem and he said it eventually goes away like a teenager and acne it just runs its course and thats it. I fear its more severe but I hope for the best. Along with that I always have itchy skin almost like poison ivy but I know for a face its not that and I have had it for months now itchy skin. So itchy skin and recurring boils my life is great. Can anyone help me out? What can I do????
