Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. At present yyour problem is cellulitis, due to pricking of the boils you had, they got infected, and cellulitis developed. It causes pain, swelling, fever, and everything.
I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. If necessory you may have to go for culture and sensitivity of the pus of the swelling.
The treatment of choice is the drainage of the pus from the most dependant part of the swelling, so that whole of the pus is drained, and remaining pus is dried with the antibiotics locally and systemically. wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
