Brief Answer:
Neosporin original ointment

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You can apply "Neosporin Original Ointment" or take simple antibiotic tablets like amoxicilline 500mg twicw a day for five days.

If that boil (acne) shows a white point at its summit, you can squeeze and drain it and clean it with any antibiotic solution or alcohol, and apply the ointment over it, and dress it with band-aid or handyplast like bandage, whichever is easily available there.

Hope i have been helpful.
