My husband had a boil about three years ago. He had it surgically removed,and carbuncles seem to reoccur a year later right next to the healed area. Dr.'s do not seem to have any answers for us and he has been on every antibiotic known to man for the past three years. He is still in pain and the antibiotics seem to be worthless.Our quetion is what is causing this pain in the butt. Litterally. My husband is a health finatic with 6% body fat,weighs 220 at height of 5ft11 and takes suppliments every day.He drinks protein shakes with milk three times a day.He does extremely hot soaks every night and takes the antibiotics faithfully. What are we doing wrong? Please let us know we can not seem to make any progress and I am seriously afraid the infection might eventually harm my husband. It has already spread to his scrotum.Can he become sterille or even die from this?Is there any natural remedies we can try?
