Brief Answer:
Consider taking oral and topical antibiotics

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
Boils are basically bacterial infection of the hair follicles.Since they haven't improved in 3 days I suggest you to start with oral as well as topical antibiotics. You can consider taking tablet amoxicillin clavulanic acid combination twice daily and apply mupirocin cream on the boil twice daily.
Besides this take anti inflammatory medicine for pain and swelling. You can have diclofenac serratiopeptidase combination twice daily. Also go for hot fermentation of the affected area twice to thrice in a day.
I don't know whether these medicines will be available as over the counter in your country.
This will definitely help you.
Wish you speedy recovery.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
