I am a truck driver and had a boil on

I am a truck driver and had a boil on my neck. It drained just fine and is almost gone but now I have one on my right back shoulder. The redness is spreading out and the pain is most of my shoulder. How .ca. I get antibiotics to treat this? I've tried to open it up in the shower and by digging in it. Neosporin is kind of helping

My husband has what appears to be a boil that is growing right beneath his scrotum above his anus. This happened once before when he was in a moving truck for 5 hours and after a week or so it eventually started bleeding and resolved itself. It is painful to sit. He now has it again and would like to know what causes this and is there anything he can do to prevent it or help the pain he is experiencing.

5 year old son has had 2 prior boils on the lower forearm--about 4 week apart and about 2 inches apart, now he has another boil on the same arm but upper arm. When to doctor and got creams, never got culture to determine if MRSA because was treated with Septra and had alergic reaction. What and how should I treat this new boil? Why is he getting boils only on one arm. No one else in family has been sick or getting boils. HELP!!
