I have a blood boil and I know I might have to go to the doctor to get it checked out but I don't have insurance like every other thousand out there. I wanted to know if any of you ladies had one?

  • Yeah, I pick them off. Why would you need to see a Dr?

  • They should come to a head and drain on their own. Use a warm compress. They should clear up in a few days. Using tea tree oil can speed their healing and clear up the bacteria. Unless the infection spreads and it does not get better after bursting, see a doctor, but most boils are common and can be treated at home.
