Brief Answer:
Can be arthritis with a skin infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

The pain associated with boils is suggestive of a skin infection with a joint inflammation- can be arthritis or gout. Pain killers and oral antibiotics are needed for proper treatment. I'd suggest consulting a physician for direct examination and proper prescriptions.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
