Boils on buttocks and thighs Watch

    Hey, I'm male, in my mid to late teens. I recently have had a problem of recurring boils - which I think is due to stress of school - and they've left really ugly scars, particularly on the butt. I'm extremely self-conscious of my body, and these just make me feel ashamed.

    Does anyone know any way to get rid of them, without having to get cosmetic surgery, or going to the doctors?

    I used to have this when i was in mid to late teens and i think stress and worry was a big factor.
    The scarring will go and they will eventually stop. Try to ignore the fact they are there, as soon as i started doing that they pretty much went. I used to get so paranoid about my ex seeing them when we had sex and i think the worry made them worse.

    I feel for you, they are horrible.

    I always get boils during exam period, it's horrible.
    Sudocrem helps

    I'd really rather not... I know the boils are down to stress, so they should go away after this little rough patch in my life, its more the scarring.

    I will go if its a last resort though.

    I don't think the scarring will go though Some have been there for a few months, and while some of them are a light brown colour - which doesn't bother me too much - others are a really dark purple which is just ugly. I'm honestly ashamed.

    Scars unfortunately often the only way to get rid is to have cosmetic surgery but i would say that the scars you have are not that serious so over time they will heal by them selves, there are also creams/oils you can buy that are supposed to help remove the scar tissue, maybe these would work for you.

    Take care

    I find I only get boils round my nether regions when I've been wearing the same pants too long or haven't washed my pyjamas recently enough. (Gross I know, I'm sorry).

    It will go, dont despair, maybe try bio oil like someone else suggested? or look online for other things that help scarring
    You could try sudocrem on fresh ones. But dont try too many things on the fresh ones as it could make it worse.
