Severe boils around lips

I have been facing some very severe boils, redness, pain and irritation around my French beard area. This has been a constant occurrence since a few years. I have been taking antibiotics but once I am done with the course the boils come back. Can anyone suggest me a permanent solution?

Hi You could be suffering from recurrent folliculitis or fungal infection of beard area. Dispose off ur shaving blade aftrr a few uses. Try using betadiene lotion to cleanse after shaving. We can tell you more specific treatment after examination. So plz consult a dermatologist.
