Welcome to HealthcareMagic. For boil, keep the area clean and apply some warm compresses and topical antiseptics like Savlon . Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or Neosporin are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics or incision and drainage may be needed.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
