You seem to be suffering from recurrent furunclosis caused by most likely MRSA ( methillin resistant staphylococcal infection ).
MRSA infections are very difficult to treat but a persistent and proper antibiotic treatment can treat this difficult infection.
You must get the pus culture done from your boils and then according to the culture report,take antibiotics.
Generally combination of antibiotics like clindamycin and rifampin in is prescribed.
Other alternate regimen is o use vancomycin with linozolid.
Your doctor shall be able to put you on a proper antibiotic treatment regime.
Adopt hygienic measures like
Taking bath with chlorhexidine soap
Repeated washing of your pillow cover,undergarments and bed sheets.
Applying muciprocin antibiotic in your nose.

Be persistent with the treatment and you shall be alright.

Dermatologist Dr. Rahul Kumar's  Response
hi dear, it can be either recurrent folliculitis or a problem related to menses. but as u say u have this problem since 11 yrs of age, at that time u must not be mensturating. so probably folliculitis, now i can suggest u an antibiotic which is highly effective. its rifampicin 600 mg daily for 10 days.

but before taking it better consult a dermatologist. one more suggestion apply oint mupirocine twice daily in ur nostrils and around anus area, as these area contain lot of bacteria, this ll help u.

thank u
