Do any of you get the boils that open up wide and leave gaping holes in your skin? I had one in my armpit several years ago that took months to close. When my Dr saw it she just referred me to a general surgeon because she said the only course of treatment would be surgery. Well, it took several months, but it eventually closed and left a strange scar. Now I have one on the back of my thigh, just below my butt cheek. Needless to say, it hurts pretty bad to sit. :( I have to keep a large bandage on it all the time. I can't take baths anymore because when water touches the wound, it burns. It's awful. The wound is in a place that is hard to see, but I managed to get a good look the other day and you can see directly into the flesh on the inside of my body. I am just wonder if anyone has had these types of holes and what you do to treat and care for them? I've had it for over 2 months now and it just gets bigger and deeper. I don't know what I can do to get it to close.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
