    You don’t indicate whether these boils are all occurring within one area of the body or distributed at distant sites. There could a number of causes from skin infections like a staph infection, folliculitis and so on. Recurrent boils always raises the concern about immune impairment as may be seen with patients who have long term diabetes that is poorly controlled or those with HIV infection. You should follow up with your family doctor and possibly see a dermatologist as well. The key is to identify the cause or predisposing factor that is contributing to this and treating it appropriately. Therefore your doctor will have to assess you and make a diagnosis. For now, all you can do is practice good hygiene with an antibacterial soap (be careful that it does not dry out your skin excessively) and see a doctor as soon as possible.
