Hi shashank,
Welcome to HCM.
These skin eruptions are infection caused by bacteria. When you scratch one of the boils and touch other part of skin, it will spread to that area. You need to consult a dermatologist and get antibiotic treatment to kill all those bacteria otherwise they will keep on recurring from one place to the other.
Moreover these mainly affect the sweat gland blocking the sweat gland ducts opening on the surface of the skin. Take bath twice a day, washing your body well with soap and warm water, and use talcum powder to keep your body dry. You may use Detol Soap or add a little bit of detol or Savlon solution to your bathing water to get antiseptic cleansing.

Hi shashank
The way you are narrating the element of heat in your body in Ayurveda we regard it to be vitiated pit, The infectious boils can be the result of this imbalance. We generally use blood purifiers to get rid of such problems. Tab. Allerin and gandhak rasayan will cure your boils. To counter effect of heat have aamla.
