Hi Mrs.Ashley Rios,
Thank you for posting your query on healthcaremagic.com and giving us this opportunity to clarify your doubt.
Well, if the boil has not come to a head, its better if you just hold on to the antibiotics and keep a watch on the size. Normally, we avoid the lancing of boils
since it may cause secondary infection. If at any point of time, you feel that the boil has come to a head or is increasing in size and the pain, you should see your pediatrician
immediately and get that boil lanced. The whole idea behind not lancing the boil is to avoid secondary infection and to allow the boil to reduce in size by controlling the local infection. But if it persists for longer time, without any reduction in the size, feel free to visit your pediatrician and allow him to have a look at it.
Hope i have clarified your doubt and take care and stay healthy.
