Men with boils on the thighs, back of neck line or throat, can use this scrub to polish and brighten blemishes. With all skin types, any chemical protein - specifically birth control - causes boils. Men dont take birth control, but men conceived while the mother used birth contol are born with a chemical protein that displays itself with boils. Boils are not to be confused with hair bumps. It may seem like a hair bump, but boils are tender, reoccuring, porous and never seem to go away permanently. Massage this scrub on damp skin, work into lather and rinse. There is also a balm and soap coming soon.
