Health Query

Dear Doctor, Past 3 months I am having recurrent boils on my face and chest. The ones on chest are similar to folliculitis but those on face are bigger like boils. I have taken antibiotic course (Azithromycin 500 mg and Sefdin 300 mg) as prescribed by a Dermatologist. Using anti-bacterial soap (Soapex classic bar) and mupirocin ointment 2% (Mupon) but things are not improving. I am 49 years old male and non-diabetic. Kindly advise for a quick remedy.
