Does your DH have problems?

My poor DH seems to keep a carbuncle on his inner thighs. He's clean, so I know filth isn't causing them. If yours gets them, how do you treat them? And is there any way to prevent them?

  • A carbuncle is an infection connected to the hair follicles. See www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000825.htm

  • Mine gets them from wearing shirt stays on his uniform. They rub against his hair, he sweats, etc.

  • A carbuncle is more than one boil. The pus has bacteria in it. When my boil popped, I used alcohol wipes to kill the bacteria and to keep any more boils from forming.
