Information on the Symptoms of Boils.
Boils can occur anywhere on the body but they appear most often on the face, eyelids, back of the neck, upper back and buttocks.

Initially a painful red nodule appears on the skin. This grows in size and then breaks down in the middle for the pus to form and looks yellow under the skin. It creates a great deal of irritation and itching. There may be a single boil, or several may develop in the same area or different areas at or about the same time, or they may come in successive crops. The swellings may not be limited to one hair follicle but may extend to many follicles. There may therefore be many openings when the boils ripen and discharge. Fever may sometimes accompany the boils.
