You should consult your doctor for this. Your doctor can prescribe antibiotics for this which will cure the infection permanently. This is the only certain way to keep it from appearing each time.
Till then, you should wash with clean water and soap. Keep the area dry. Apply warm compresses if there is pain. You can also apply Ointment Bactroban or Fucidin (Mupirocin) (OTC) on the areas.
