The doctor gave me antibiotics but I am really really scared. I read an online article about them sometimes becoming life threatening. Yes I am one of those people who worry way too much but I just want information, advice and reassurance. Thanks
Info on the internet can be lies sometimes, just listen to your doctor, and take the medicine they gave you. if the doctors didn't say it's life threatening, don't worry.
My hubby gets boils. take the antibiotics and make sure you finish them. keep it clean and try warm( hubby says as warm as you can stand) wet wash rags on them. once they break you'll feel better. you need to take the medicine because if you don't not only will the infection get worse and make you really sick(fever and all) but then you'll have to have the doctor lance them. not fun and being on your bottom crack pretty embarrassing.
source hubby has had boils on and off since he was 13. you might also try sitting on a heating pad too to help them to hurry and break on their own. oh and wear ratty undies until the problem clears up. sometimes when they break they make a real mess even for a day or so after.
I wouldn't worry about what the internet says, the internet is just like the Media, like newpapers, scare you for nothing, and don't get worryied, you're doctor gave you medicine for a reason, for it to get better, all you have to do is take it and if it doesn't go away, go back and he should sort it out.
Why so serious?
You shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. Doctors are professional and if you take the medicine they prescribed you it should be fine don't worry so much because stress can kill you too.
