Hello and welcome to HCM,
The boil on the ye lid and its recurrence is due to infection especially bacterial infection.
The boil can be due to infection and inflammation of the hair follicles of the eye lashes.
Consult your ophthalmologist for clinical examination of the eye.
In case there is any discharge in the eye, it needs to be examined.
Presence of infection has to be treated with antibiotic eye drops.
If the infection is limited to the eye lid only, oral antibiotics may be required.

Thanks and take care
