Hi Recurring boils over the feet may be an indication of underlying problems. Check blood sugar in fasting and after breakfast to rule out diabetes. Check for I'll fitting shoes that may put pressure on the feet causing boils. Check pus culture and sensitivity to rule out gram negative infection. Keep feet dry and use open footwear.
