Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen your blood and urine reports. All the values are within normal limits and there is nothing worrisome about these tests.
Antibiotics do take care of the infection thus the boil you had got dried up. The skin will come back to its normal texture in few days. Please do not worry.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
