    ovr in the Uk we use pink lint and this draws it to a head once it has burst keep it clean and dry good luck mel
    Use Prid Salve. It works wonders. After about 24 hours the glorified pimple (that's basically what a boil is) will burst on its own. I got Prid salve at Walgreens.
    Keep taking hot showers----NOT baths, my Dr. said.
    Don't squeeze it!! It will just make it worse, by pushing it farther down in there.
