Thanks for writing to us.
As you are having multiple boils please start a course of oral antibiotic like amoxycillin or cefixime after getting the prescription of same from your local doctor. Use antibacterial soap to bathe and apply mupirocin cream over affected areas. Hopefully in few days the lesions would resolve.
Take care
