My husband has recently had a lot of large cyst-like pimples all over his body...what could these be a symptom of?

Posted by wellspring75

First they started showing up on his head...about a week or 10 days ago...then, he found one under his armpit, then on his back, legs, and buttocks, now on the back of his neck...this one woke him up tonight (which is quite a feat in itself).  He has become very tired lately, taking 2-3 naps a day, as well as going to bed much earlier, he is feeling ill, slight upgrade in temperature...what could these be symptoms of???  They are deep pimples, very very large, very painful, almost like boils.

I could understand developing one or a few boils in a single area due to localized irritation.  I could also understand developing a rash due to environmental exposure.  But the whole body?  That's a bit of a stretch without invoking other bad things like might have shut down his immune system, especially since it doesn't appear that you've been affected at all.  Regardless, give that he's feeling ill & tired as well as running a fever, he needs to get checked out by his family physician who can then perform a more thorough evaluation.  Good luck!
