Our expert says:
there is a bacteria called staph aureus that lives on the skin and that can cause boils if your immunity is low ( as in diabetes). It may help to bath with antiseptic soap like Hibiscrub, use Bactroban on the spots as soon as infection is noticed and get antibiotics to drink if you develop a boil. Have her iron levels tested too.
