Dear Dona,
One thing that comes to mind is you get yourself checked for Diabetes. Get two samples checked - one fasting sample and second, two hours after your normal meals.
You may take an antibiotic like a Macrolide for long period of time (15 days).
Use a good antiseptic soap for bathing.
Kindly post your sugar results

Hi!Dona,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Dona you have not mentioned sites where you get these abscess or boils .You might need a long course of antibiotics in this case.Also you should apply creams like mupirocin not only over these lesions but also over pri-oral area,peri-nasal area and peri-anal area. These are the sources of infection in chronic cases.
As far as marks are concerned ,there are certain group of patients who have tendency to develop pigmentation following a very trivial injury.There are lot of medicated bleaching cream which can be used to reduce them.If marks on the exposed areas then don't forget to use a sun screen daily.

regards,
Dr.chawda
