i noticed the other day that a friend of mine has a lot of boils like sores on her body. they seem to be where clothes rub. like under arms and along where a bra sits, sides where pants sit and on her butt. when she is fully dressed you would never even know she had them. the only reason i saw them is cause she was changing before we went out the other night and needed help with her dress. i dont know if its anything i should be worried about, simply because i know that mrsa can be very contagious. i dont want to bring it up to her if its nothing cause im sure she is embarrassed about it already. does anyone know what it could be?
Bed sores would not appear on someone who is active and up and about.
They are caused by continuous pressure on a bony area of the body.
Were these "boils" red and irritating and coming to a head?
In those areas you mentions, they could also be skin tags, which some people are more prone to and they can get pretty large in areas like bra line and waist line.
It could also be acne.
For it to be MRSA, she would be ill and these sores would get huge and worse very quickly.
