Me too. I used to get horrible boils that had to be drained. Yes. Boils can be very painful, depending on how large they are and where they are located.
The worst skin infection I had lasted for some five plus years. Antibiotics did not kill the infection. They only kept it from getting worse. The skin infection finally went away on its own when I eliminated bread and cheese from my diet.
I've tried honey, tea tree oil, toothpaste, aloe vera, lemon juice, and a whole bunch of other home remedies for acne. None of them worked. I'm really, really prone to getting skin infections.
