Embarrassing Bodies presents: Angry Boils

The Embarrassing Bodies clinic has been overrun with patients suffering from multiple medical maladies. Someone needs to take control of the clinic and direct the medical staff to where they are needed most and help treat all the patients before they drown in a sea of snot or get buried under a plague of boils. Dr. Dawn, Dr. Christian and Dr. Pixie need your help!

The game puts you in control of the Embarrassing Bodies clinic as waves of patients test the Doctor’s skills to the limit. Players must marshal their resources to treat all of the different illnesses that present themselves at the clinic, from Conjunctivitis and Diarrhoea to Pubic Lice and Flatulence. The National Health Services’ finest will help the doctors, from Triage Nurses to Anaesthesists, but players must choose the right combination to successfully deal with each illness and ensure that no patient leaves the clinic untreated.

Angry Boils is available from the App Store, Google Play and Amazon

sounds like you'v been unlucky there are so many reasons it hard to pin it down, it sounds from the very limited info you'v given that that second one may of been partly down the the first one not going to well. Things to remember an Ulcer/Absess is an infection under the skin arm pits are naturally sweaty so can be difficult. Hygiene and blood flow are important, so changing bedding even how hot your bedding/quilt can help old heavily used mattresses allergic reactions to bed bugs steroid creams lack of mobility due too not feeling well, these are all things to think about As for the pain I think you should get back in touch with gp and get it rechecked Then ask for a follow up (WELL BEING CHECK) which should be at-least a 30min appointment to see if there is underlying heath or life stile problems ...... best of luck

I have had several bite like bumps come up on my lower leg, it happened shortly after I got chickenpox for this first time (24 years). They were really itchy at first, then the skin on and around became dry and now it's really hard. I don't know if they have anything to do with cramps that I get from cold weather in bed or if it's unrelated as it seems to happen at the point on cramp. I've been to the docs and they dismissed it as in growing hair and also went walk-in where I was given antibiotic cream- no changes- they've now been with me for 5 months! Please help.

I am a 34 year old female, I have a dark raised area on my scalp which is growing very fast and now moving down onto my face. where ever it grows my hair falls out. I am scared that it will spread even further. My doctor doesn't seem to know what it is, i have had biopsys etc but no one seems to know what it is or how to treat it. My Doc treated it as fugus, exema but nothing has worked. I really hope you can help me.

Might be to do with something you wear I always get it and I know how irritating it is. What helps me a lot when I'm at home I'll just chill in some really baggy shorts and then when I'm out wear something baggy around that area. Mine clears in about 2-3 days. Hope this helped X
