I have been treating it (tea tree oil soap) its going away as well but can they be related? and also I take lisinopril and Antonolol for BP should I notify my doctor it may be a side affect of the lisinopril?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Not likely related to the medications.

Lisinopril will cause more widespread rash.

Boil is likely due to the skin bacterial infection of hair follicle.

Purple spots can be due to the bleeding under the skin if you take aspirin --a common cause.

Nothing serious.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
