Dear Dona,
One thing that comes to mind is you get yourself checked for Diabetes. Get two samples checked - one fasting sample and second, two hours after your normal meals.
You may take an antibiotic like a Macrolide for long period of time (15 days).
Use a good antiseptic soap for bathing.
Kindly post your sugar results

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Dona you have not mentioned sites where you get these abscess or boils .You might need a long course of antibiotics in this case.Also you should apply creams like mupirocin not only over these lesions but also over pri-oral area,peri-nasal area and peri-anal area. These are the sources of infection in chronic cases.
As far as marks are concerned ,there are certain group of patients who have tendency to develop pigmentation following a very trivial injury.There are lot of medicated bleaching cream which can be used to reduce them.If marks on the exposed areas then don't forget to use a sun screen daily.
