Hi there,

This thing is a cause for concern and should not be taken lightly. You have a case of a continuing soft tissue infection. If you have completely drained the first one, then it could have healed completely but another boil in adjacent areas could imply a continuing infection and progressing. Seek medical consult now to start an antibiotic treatment. Feel free to follw up.
