I would like to know 10 I had a boil
You will not be contagious for your partner.
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
The boil and staff infection are contagious if the boil is untreated, open and it's content gets in contact with healthy skin of other person.
As about your case since your boil was cleared up by doctor and you also had antibiotics and you have no more symptoms or flare-up you can be sure it is not contagious.
Staff infection and boil are not sexually transmitted but can get transmitted skin to skin if open boil.
You should not worry about it.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
