In brief: Recurrent boils

Your boils are more than likely caused by a staph infection.
To eradicate the problem, get some Bactroban (mupirocin) Ointment and insert the ointment in both your nostrils. In addition take warm soapy baths to which you have added 4-5 tablespoons of bleach.Take at least two baths a day and used the antibiotic ointment several times a day hopefully, this should eliminate your recurrent infections.
