Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Usually such boils occur due to bacterial infections. Yes, there are chances wherein you could have gained or transmit the infection to your partner even by contact.

If you get any boil again, do get the pus culture and sensitivity test done. This test gives a list of antibiotics which are effective against such boils. Taking such antibiotic course can end the infection and prevent recurrences.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Yes, a consultation with sexual disease specialist (venereologist) would be needed to rule out sexually transmitted diseases.
