Boils are due to some infections, you should allow hime to scratch the boils it will spread to other places. Put some antibiotic creams .

Avoid him playing outside the house in the mud and soil, this will cause boils. Put full pant while going out side to prevent infections

I have been plagued by boils since I was a teen. I finally saw a dermatologist and he put me on minocycline, which helps some. I also shower with antibacterial soap. Lately, now that I am older I notice that they are more painful and last longer. Is there really anything over the counter that works? I might add, I sit for long periods at my job. The boils seem to show up in the creases of my legs and my buttocks. Any help would be appreciated.
