I've never gotten boils or had bad acne Im 40


Q: I've never gotten boils or had bad acne. Im 40. I've recently gotten married and moved into a new apartment. Within 2 weeks, I had 3 boils, one under each arm and one below my belly button. I went to the ER with fever and a lot of pain. The doctor lanced 2 of them and said the other would clear up with antibiotics. They cleared up but I'm breaking out with acne and other boils, which have now spread to my face. I'm worried and the hospital keeps giving me scripts and sending me on my way. I get headaches, my ears ring all the time, im coughing a lot but only white foam comes up, and cold sweats ate ona nd off... but no fever. What could be causing all this??? I eat right, work out, and drink nothing but water. Im a US Army Ranger vet. I smoke but haven't lately. I'm miserable. Any ideas?
