Apply moist heat, hot as you can stand as often as you can. That will encourage it to form a head and drain all by itself. Don't go poking, prodding or squeezing it because that can rupture it beneath the skin and just make matters worse. Keep it covered with a bandage until it has completely healed. Use an antibacterial soap in the shower, and don't reuse towels or washclothes until it's completely healed. In fact, don't wash that spot and other healthy skin afterwards becasue you can transfer the bacteria to a new spot. If it drains on it's own, it will heal faster because there won't be any other damage to the skin. Your body is quite capable of dealing with it without your help, and trying to help will make matters worse. If it doesn't drain in a day or so with the heat, then you will need to see the doctor to have it incised and drained, and some antibiotics. Right now, just apply heat and try to be patient.

How awful
There is only one major alternative way for treating a boil. That is to apply a hot compress to the area for 30 minutes every few hours. It should burst and drain on its own. After it does burst, you should keep the area clean with an antiseptic soap and try to avoid contaminating other areas of the skin with the drained matter. You should never try to squeeze or lance the boil yourself because you could spread the infection and make it worse. If this does not work then you can have your doctor surgically drain them and prescribe antibiotics.

Use a hot compress and it will burst....its really gross but it will do the trick every time. Its an infected hair folicle...so a gross brother of the pimple.

go to a doctor.

I believe that you may have a condition called Hidradenitis Supprativa. It is a condition of re-occurring boils/ cysts/abscesses , that are often misdiagnosed as ingrown hairs, herpes, being unclean and folliculitis. This is a newly diagnosed skin condition , but there is a lot of info out there.
Here is a link :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidradeniti...
If this sounds like it might be you, READ it, PRINT it out, and TAKE it to your DOC.
Its better to try to start treatment soon, it can spread over the body if left untreated. These boils can become quite large and painful. Sometimes even lasting for weeks or months , do not attempt to POP them they can then tunnel under your skin and spread all over the body. Most common areas are armpits, groin, binkni line, inner legs, and intimate places and basically anywhere that sweats and rub against clothing. Stress is a big inducer.

There is some support groups at MSN

(http://groups.msn.com/HidradenitisSuppor...

and yahoo, and I am open for questions!
I have had this for 8 years, I was misdiagnosed for a LONG time, It was very embarrassing, painful and scary. I am just trying to help out so you don’t have to wait as long as I did.

Ouch! I know that hurts. There is only one major alternative way for treating a boil. That is to apply a hot compress to the area for 30 minutes every few hours. It should burst and drain on its own. After it does burst, you should keep the area clean with an antiseptic soap and try to avoid contaminating other areas of the skin with the drained matter.

If this does not work then you can have your doctor surgically drain them and prescribe antibiotics.

I hope you feel better.

I do not think you are supposed to pop it. Just use warm compress and take Ibuprofen. If it does not go down in a few days. See the dr and he will pop it under clean sterilized conditions

lance and launch it.


harvardbeans
Don't you hate it when people tell you to go to the doctor, as if that is a revelation?

Heat it to bring it to the surface then lance it (poke it with a sterile needle) to drain it. People say never use a needle on yourself, but I burn the needle and wipe it with rubbing alcohol and have never gotten an infection from doing this (have performed multiple minor surgeries on myself).

Clean and disinfect it after it is empty. Cover it. Change the dressing at least twice a day.

Antibiotics.


Edit = I am laughing at the people who think hospitals and doctors' offices are safe and sterile places. Staph infections are growing at epidemic proportion in these type of "sterile" environments because the bacteria have evolved and are immune to chlorhexadine and the various other antibacterial solutions that are over-used in hospitals and doctors' offices. One thing no bacteria can survive? Fire. Burn the tip of your needle until it glows red, then wipe it with rubbing alcohol to cool it. You will never go wrong.

Lance it with a sterile needle. Give it a good squeezing. Put rubbing alcohol on it liberally. Then put a band-aid on it (after you stop screaming).

Keep an eye on it for a few days. If it gets real "angry" got to the saw-bones.
