Pimples or boils around chest and waistline.

I have had skin problems for as long as I can remember.  I have pimples/skin lesions/boils (i know there is a distinction between those three but my girlfriend calls them boils) that appear on my chest and around my waistline.  They also show up on my back by my shoulder blade, evey behind my ears and recently I had one on my back by my left side.  They mostly appear on my chest and waistline though.  I had a doctor look at them and he said folliculitis.  A culture of one was taken and nothing grew out of it.  My girlfriend is worried that I have a virus and she has caught it.  This is causeing major stress on our relationship and I am not sure what I can do about it.  I shower everyday very throughly.  I use lots of soap and hot water.  If I am having an internal problem I dont know what it is.  Thanks for taking the time to read my question.
