Thanks for posting your query

Recurrent boils are known to occur because of following reasons :
1] Inadequate treatment
2] Poor hygiene
3] Associated disease like diabetes mellitus
4] Reduced immunity

I think the surgeon has prescribed you antibiotics and if the wound doesn't heal he may need to drain it properly and send the pus for a culture report and then treat you according to the report

If drained properly and treated as per sensitivity report the chances of recurrance are very low

Hope this helps
