hi this is embarassing but i have been taking iron pills because my iron level is really low so i found out a month ago im iron deficent anemic..

my question is i have been getting boils on my butt, i was using a cream and a hot pack and it was helping but now it looks like there are more and im confused why

i shower daily n change my underwaer and only wear cotton.. its annoying and i want them to be gone.. is there anything I can do?

thanks so much

This is really something best discussed with your doctor - it's a bit outside of our scope here. In the meantime, keep up with the cotton underwear and keep your skin clean and dry.

No problem. [Smile] There's never any harm in asking.
