Thanks for the query.

You can apply antibiotic eye ointment(Ciplox eye ointment) four times daily inside the eye.
You can also do hot fomentation. Soak a piece of cotton in hot water, rinse it and apply it over the skin overlying the boil. Your boil should disappear in three days.
If you have no relief with the above treatment, get back to me.

Best regards,
