what can I do to comfort a boil?
HI, Do not try to pinch or pop the boil. You can apply antibiotic cream containing fucindin or mupirocin on the boil. You can take a pain killer tablet along with it. If the boil is not settling then can take oral antibiotic like azithromycin 500mg once a day for 3 days.
 
I have a boil between my thighs and it what can do about it
Hi Chrissy, thanks for your query. The boil is either due to Staph bacterial infection of hair follicle (occurs commonly after shaving), or a carbuncle. Do NOT pinch, squeeze or puncture it. A course of a suitable antibiotic + Anti-inflammatory pain killer will dry it up and eradicate the infection. If it is very large and soft, doctor will give a small nick to drain it.
