I keep getting recurring boils on my butt. PCP prescribed Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) but not working. More popping up while on it. Any suggestions? See Dermatologist?

In brief: You may

Your PCP can also take a culture for lab analysis and treat you with a definite antibiotic based on the sensitivity profile.
This is not beyond what your PCP can handle. A change of antibiotic will likely take care of the problem
