Hi there.
This persistent boil you describe appears to be an ingrown hair or a sebaceous cyst that gets recurrently infected.
Your best recourse would be to go across to a competent dermatosurgeon or general surgeon & get it 'excised'!
Do let me know where you live & i would be happy to recommend a doctor close to you if possible or one may look up the XXXXXXX directory for addresses!
Cheers & Good Luck .
P.S. It is a minor procedure that can be done under local anaesthesia in the Outpatient & do not worry; charges will vary with the centre & the size of lesion etc.
