    How do I treat my six-year-old's boil on her tummy?

    She says it hurts, of course. I don't think you are supposed to squeeze them.

    No, you're not suppose to squeeze them and yes, they do hurt. Regular moist heat packs (a wet face cloth hot but not hot enough to burn the skin) will help to draw the infection out naturally. If it gets too large or too painful, it will require a trip to the doctor to have it lanced.
    Take her to the Dr.
    A course of anti-biotics will clear it up quickly.
    Sometimes they lance them but most times they will not because of the infection risk.
    A boil on the tummy will not only be painful but will make her feel sick as well.Poor kid! Hope you get it fixed quick!
