The boils are caused by sweating and small hairs that get infected. This infected hair in turn causes the boils. To treat the boils, you will have to use oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication. The boils might have to be drained and this procedure can be done by your GP.
To prevent this, you should not use roll on. Shave your armpits dry and use Fissan paste directly afterwards.
