2 abcesses on inner buttock that have been lanced 4

Patient

Q: 2 abcesses on inner buttock that have been lanced 4 times and ruptured on their own several times since last October. They keep coming back in the exact same spot each time. Now I'm noticing additional areas that are getting lumps. I've been on clindamycin 4 times for 10 days. I've used tumeric, castor oil poltice and warm compresses. Nothing seems to heal them so they won't return. Please help. They are painful and it's exhausting going through the process every few days with no relief. Process: red raises painful blistering bursting bleeding draining healing and return/repeat 2 to 4 days later.
