Hi ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the boil keeps recurring at the same place & has pus with fever occassionally then it is not getting treated completely and some focus of infection remains there.Please consult a surgeon for treatment & also see if the culture & sensitivity test of pus is done so that specific & indicated antibiotic can be prescribed.Or if it is a infected sebaceous cyst then it will have to be removed surgically.Please get him to a surgeon for further treatment.
