I am a medical student, i do get boils, i have done lot of research, if boils under armpits r very frequent, better go to a skin specialist, there are some severe conditions of skins like hydradenitis supprativa. My belief is that when our blood become thick and has lot of impurities, increased amount of fat in blood, heat, clogged sweat glands, all these things lead to occurence of boils. If these r really bothersome, please visit a good skin specialist, thanks
