Why does my husband get recurrent boil on his face?
Q: My husband is getting one big painful red pimple almost every month on his face (near eyebrows, nose and cheeks). It’s very painful and takes 8 to 10 days to go off. What is the reason for this?
A:If your husband is getting a recurrent swelling at a fixed point, then it could be a cyst which is getting infected again and again. On the other hand, if they are occurring at different places then, it could be due to acne or pyoderma. In the latter case, he needs to be investigated in addition to the relevant antibiotics.
