Brief Answer:
Hot fomentation & Antibiotics

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This boil needs hot fomentation for 5 minutes twice a day.

Traditional drug of choice for lid margin infections is Doxycycline 100 mg.twice a day for 4 to 5 days. Please remember that this is a prescription medication and you will need a prescription before you can take a medication like this from the pharmacist.

If there is much pain and swelling then ibuprofen paracetamol combination can be had twice a day.
This is available in the market in the name of combiflam or flexon tablets.

Any further query in this regard please do get back to me.
