Hello. : Hello. It sounds like you may be getting bacterial infections of your skin. Staphylococcus aureus is often the cause. You can place warm compresses on the boil, replacing as it cools down for 20 to 30 minutes at a time every few hours. However, since this is a recurrent problem for you, recommend that you see your regular doctor or a dermatologist to determine the cause. Don't cut it open. I know it is hard to resist squeezing them but that can cause the infection to spread. So don't squeeze the boils either. If you get redness and warmth in the surrounding skin - it could be a sign of cellulitis. If the boil is very large or doesn't resolve within a few days, recommend getting is seen more promptly. If you develop a fever in reaction to the boil - than you need to get immediate care. Don't know your age or health, but if you are diabetic or immune compromised for another reasons, you should not delay in getting seen. Take care. ...Read more
