  • Okay...it's kind of embarrasing to have him do it, but my husband has a great trick when I get one on my butt.

    You need and empty glass bottle, boiling water, and a cold washcloth. Pour the boiling water in the bottle and let it sit until the bottle gets really hot. Wrap the cold washcloth around the bottle, dump the water out, then put it over the boil and push down. It will create a vacuume and suck all the 'ick' out. It works best if you wait for the boil to come to a head before you do it.

  • My family gets those too, Ive noticed they are worse in the summer.
    My doc perscribed us ACNE GEL!! and it works. You can feel it work. I even used the pro-active repairing lotion "the clearish white one" and it works too. After you open it and drain as much as you can out put it on there let it set for like 10 min then put a bandaid on it.
    The ones we get are furuncles, your doc can give you an antibiotic for it.

  • my dr said to bring it to a head with warm washcloths... pop it... and wash it a lot. I used neutrogena body wash, the skin clearing one... it's completely gone after two weeks of that. haven't gotten one since.
