Hi. Greetings. It may not be the best thing to do to pop antibiotics every time you have a boil. You may be have hidradenitis or recurrent furunculosis. Please see a good qualified dermatologist and get examined and evaluated for same. Pus culture from the boil may be required. If hidradenitis you may require long term treatment. If recurrent furunculosis, you'll require other measures of prevention and treatment. Hope this helps.
