Can boils be caused by puberty? And does maturity cause puberty?

Update:

Sorry let me rephrase the last part: Does maturity have anything to do with puberty?

    Boils are large, tender, swollen, raised areas caused by staphylococcal infection around hair follicles.

    At birth , the levels of luteinizing hormones and follicle- stimulating hormone are high, but they decrease within a few months and remain low until puberty.

    Early in puberty, these hormone levels increase, stimulating the production of sex hormones. In boys the testes, prostate, seminal vesicles, and penis mature, and facial, pubic and underarm hair grows. Normally, these changes occur sequentially during puberty, resulting in sexual maturity.

    Boils are caused by bacterial infections, including... but not limited to "MRSA" (look it up).

    Maturity is the end result of puberty.

    Boils aren't related to puberty. Maturity is the end result of going through adolescence.
