Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Recurrent boils on the nose are usually due to staph aureus which usually resides in the nasal alae/nostrils.A few things to do-wash your hands frequently,especially when you touch your nose/mask area.Take Augmentin for 7-10 days.Use Fucidin ointment to clear the nostrils of the staph bacteria by applying the ointment 2-3 times daily for 4-5 days and washing your hands properly after that with soap and water.If anyone in the household has similar boils,he should also be treated similarly at the same time.Clearing the nose of all staph bacilli is the key,avoid reinfection which may occur by shaking hands with a person who may be infected similarly.Discuss this with your PCP/Doctor who can guide you and prescribe the medication.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
