Our expert says:
It could be that you have a skin gland that is a bit blocked there and then builds up oily tissue which irritates and develops into infection. Try washing with Hibitane soap in all the warm places, like under the arms, inbetween toes and the anal area. Be careful as it can burn if you get it in your eyes. Ask your GP to look at the boil -whether it needs draining and ask him to prescribe an antibiotic to use. Use Bactroban ointment on the area.
