Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Development of boils on the burns is a common finding.You can apply silver sulfadiazine ointment or sucralfate ointment to get relief from the burning sensation. If nothing is available apply some toothpaste on it . Keep the boils open to air and do not prick them to take out the fluid.

hello,

Applying warmth to the infected area is one effective way to treat boils.Soak a washcloth in warm salt water and put the cloth on the affected area.Never squeeze a boil - this can spread the infection. u should use an antibacterial soap for bathing to be on the safe side.Increasing one’s water intake also helps in expelling the toxins from the system. take good balanced diet.u can continue the same antibiotic course for 5 days.maintain hygiene of that area. if severe consult dermatologist. take care. best of luck for ur exams.

I am Mark, 19 years old. Recently in the past 4 months, I ve been bothered by recurring painful boils (2cm in diameter including the reddened area). It appears only one at a time over a period of time. My doctor prescribed me an antibiotic Flucloxacillin for 28 capsules q6h a day. The first time I used my antibiotic, I wasn t able to finish the therapy . I only managed to take 14 capsules, but my boil healed so I thought my problem is finished. The second time I got boil, I finished the whole 28 cap therapy. But even after that It still recur. What should I do? I m afraid if I repeat my antibiotic therapy I might develop resistance from it. Home care treatments also will do. Hope to hear an answer from you, thanks and more power.
