  • soak it in epson salts ad get some boilease....it's a cream that helps bring it to head and between the soaking and that it should open up and drain ....ps put the cream on a bandaid that way when it does drain it wont get all over your clothes.

  • Probably. Nothing serious though. It's just an infected hair follicle and they aren't always big. I think DD had one on her leg the other day. It was small but got all red around it and eventually burst and bled, but it's better now.

  • I get them under my breasts during the summer when it's so hot. Very painful. Hot water and heat helps them to burst.

  • Yikes, thanks ladies. I have one on my butt. Driving me crazy, can't sit, walk, stand. I guess I will try the hot water treatment tonight. Need to get rid of this thing!

  • I've had one. I used a sterile pin and popped it...gross and hurt like hell, but it healed quickly after that.

  • It is really annoying. I might pop it. Well, have DH do it, I can't see it.
