Boils in head

Doctor, I often get boils on my head. I have a oily scalp for the past few years I get boils which lasts for 4-5 days which is also very painful. Once I take all the pus from the boils pain goes away. What would be the reason for it?

Hello....... Is it boil or pustules?? You should have attached your photo.Local examination is required If it's pimple, it is usually common at this age , due to harmonal secretion , Thick or greasy make-up may, possibly, make acne worse. Picking and squeezing the spots may cause further inflammation and scarring.wash face twice daily with mild soap and lukewarm water. consult dermatologist.
