Development of boils on the burns is a common finding.You can apply silver sulfadiazine ointment or sucralfate ointment to get relief from the burning sensation. If nothing is available apply some toothpaste on it . Keep the boils open to air and do not prick them to take out the fluid.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response

Applying warmth to the infected area is one effective way to treat boils.Soak a washcloth in warm salt water and put the cloth on the affected area.Never squeeze a boil - this can spread the infection. u should use an antibacterial soap for bathing to be on the safe side.Increasing one’s water intake also helps in expelling the toxins from the system. take good balanced diet.u can continue the same antibiotic course for 5 days.maintain hygiene of that area. if severe consult dermatologist. take care. best of luck for ur exams.
