Pus filled boil on the back. Recurring. Remedy?

My boyfriend has a strange spot/ boil on the middle of his back. It is very hard under the surface of his skin + has a brown head that seems to sit below the skin. It s very hard to squeeze + produces a thick, white puss that has a very strong smell of cheese. It squeezed the same one about 4 months ago + it has now re appeared.
