Boils are soft tissue infections.  It can develop anywhere in the body.  Areas prone to this kind of infection include the axilla, inguinal region, and the area under the breast.  
You need to see your doctor for proper management.  Drainage of the abscess is done, and appropriate antibiotic should be started.    
Good luck.
