due to excessive creams and oils as you described the infected boil can occur in the area
use doxycycline 100 mg bd short course
with clindamycin gel bd on area
keep airy and dry
non toxic soaps shampoo oils and body applicaton materials
no greesy oily fatty food
idea is to reduce the oil and oil production to get rid of boil which is due to oils

Dermatologist Dr. Raghuveer Murki's  Response
hi the home made treat should for boils may work but it is not proved that the treatment works.monistat cream is a antifungal treatment but i think the description u mentioned is not a fungal infection.boils can be best treated with a broad spectrum antibiotic and a anti inflammatory agents like combiflame tablet and application of mupirocin ointment can cure prevent recurrences apply the mupirocin ointment over the nares,umbliculis or perianal area can cure it
