Recurring boils and carbunclesMy friend, 30 year old male has boils and carbuncles in his body. They appear everywhere in the body. He has them all the time, all year and already for many years. They keep appearing one after the other. Some are small boils and some are big carbuncles.
There is some burning and itching and he has also frequent urination with burning - also for years.
I am trying to read about different remedies and I see Anthracinum many times indicated for recurrent big carbuncles that continue appearing one after the other. Also I see Echinea mother tincture indicated for the 'boil habit'.
Should I try either of these or would it be better to see the whole case with all the mentals etc.?
Some remedies have been already tried - Lachesis and Arsenicum. He felt some relief for the itching but not for the boils. Now he is trying Lycopodium, but he says that he doesn't feel better either.
He has had these boils already for years, so there must be some infection in the blood. He is also overall tired and frustrated because of this situation.
I would be grateful for any help.
