About 6 weeks ago he had an allergic reaction to his deodorant. At first it was huge welts on his arm pit and it was warm to the touch. About a week or so later the welts went away and he strted getting pimple-like bumps. The bumps spread toward his elbow and down his side. They're still there and one of the bumps right in center of his arm pit looks really bad. It has a lump smaller than a bouncy ball but bigger than a marble. This morning he squeezed it (which REALLY hurt him) and this mucus came out. At first it was pink then it was yellow.
He's also got 2 spots around his hips from where his belt rubs against it. They're bumps about the size of a quarter and they're red all around them. The redness spreads about the width of a softball...
So I'm trying to get him to go to ER and he doesn't want to go. What do you ladies think? My guess is it is Staph, but not sure....

it sounds like staph to me, what you're describing about the pus that came out when he squeezed it(which is NOT a good idea) they sound like boils that are really bad, they could be classified as abscesses. the stuff that is coming out(the yellowish pus) is very is contagious, as in if any of this ooze gets on another pore of his skin,that pore WILL get a boil as well.
do they hurt thruout the day? and them being warm to the touch it sounds like boils.they SUCK!! and as mmmmegan said it can get into the bloodstream. google boils and read about them, i used to get them horridly and i was in tears all the time the hurt so bad, thankfully mine were poor diet and from shaving, so mine went away after i changed these things.
if he wont go to the er, which what they will do is drain them, you can "kinda" do this at home. PM and i can tell you how.(too long to wrire out here,)
