Hello, Thank you for your question.
Boils that are found near the anal area according to the description you are conveying are anal abscesses. Anal abscess is a lump that forms around the anus due to an infection of the gland in the anal wall. These lumps can look swollen, red, feel warm, feel painful, and can produce pus. Anal abscesses can be caused by the following various health conditions:
fistula ani infection
obstruction of the anal gland
taking anti-inflammatory drugs
You should bring your child back to the surgeon so the doctor can do further tests on your child to find out if your child has certain risk factors that cause these symptoms to recur. The doctor will determine further treatment according to your child's condition. Don't forget to tell your doctor that this condition has happened before.
For a while, your child can soak the buttocks in a bucket of warm water to help cure. It is also recommended that you always clean your child's buttocks area thoroughly.
Hopefully this information is useful.
