I've been all over the forums and can not find one that addresses this. Please feel free to guide me to the right one!!

I have been prone to boils for years.....2 or 3 a year, no big deal.

For the past several months, I have 'chronic boils', one right after the other. Some hurt more than others, some come to heads and pop, once in a while one might disappear after a while without causing much trouble.
I currently and quite acutely have 4 boils in typical places :)
This is making me crazy and actually a bit ill feeling, not to mention the soreness.
I have no idea what to do, what could cause it (not hair follicles), how to find out if it's something else (staph-bacterial).
Please help, any suggestions appreciated.
I'm a middle age female.

Meds: Zofran, Domperidone, Hydrocortisone, Essential Oils, Homeopathy, Herbs, etc.
