The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in
areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast
, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery. Thankyou for your information also because now I think i will phone my doctor and ask her if its serious enough for surgery, or just a big pimple?
