Hello, you should have attached photo of boils . A boil is a skin infection that starts in a hair follicle or oil gland. At first, the skin turns red in the area of the infection, and a tender lump develops. After four to seven days, the lump starts turning white as pus collects under the skin. Most boils are caused by a germ (staphylococcal bacteria). You may need antibiotics ,consult dermatologist
