for 10 years,my boil kept recurring,what is the best medical treatment?
Applying warm compresses to a boil can help it to drain. Large boils should be incised and drained. Antibiotic( topical or oral) therapy is advisable for large or recurrent boils or those that occur in sensitive areas (such as around or in the nostrils or in the ear)
The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Recurring Boil includes the following list.
