Boils are bacterial Infections that develop from the formation of a pustule within a hair follicle. Treatments include gentle cleansing with soap and water, use of hot water compresses, topical antibiotics, drainage and systemic antibiotics.
The boil should not be squeezed, since rupturing within the Skin can spread the Infection. Relief of Pain and healing are usually rapid after drainage. Boils are excruciatingly Painful and relief only comes when the pus is drained. They are contagious, so great care needs to be taken during treatment.
