Old boil os turning painful
I had a boil on thigh 9 years back. It was quite painful. I took antibiotics and later the pus and root was squeezed out after which it healed. There left a scar with slight depression. Of late the scar is being painful and itchy. Slight pressure from the finger gives enough ache. The scar and the surrounding 10 cm is constantly itchy. Is this worrisome? What is the treatment?
