hi since you recurrent boils ... that means you have staphyloccocal infection so for that you need to take tab doxy 100mg twice a day fro 14 days and neosporin powder for your boils daily three times a day for 10 days . get back to me after 10 days i am sure you will be cured .

Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
First of all you need to stop all over the counter ointments and creams. Ring guard and all have steroids in them and they will just increase your problems. Such combinations are not recommended also.
Just get your self checked out by a physician and get some tests also done.
Maintain proper hygiene.
Best regards.
