In brief: Infection
Skin infections are commonly caused by staph.
Frequent multiple boils could represent a chronic resistant infection. The fact that you are on Imuran (azathioprine) already makes it harder for you to clear infections. You should be seen by you doctor and have these boils cultured to plan the appropriate treatment.
