In brief: If you are

experiencing recurrent boils - I would encourage medical assessment to determine the cause.

If an infection it needs to be seen. Pustular(pus) like raised bumps need help.

In brief: Abscess Treatment

An abscess is a tender mass generally surrounded by a colored area from pink to deep red.
Abscesses are often easy to feel by touching. The middle of an abscess is full of pus and debris. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/abscess#1
