Does anyone here get boils? adult content

I've got what I believe is a boil on my stomach. I don't have poor hygiene or poor nutrition, but I am a diabetic (insulin dependent so, its under control). I am going to attempt to "pop it" myself.

  • my ex used to. Make sure it's not an abscess before you try to pop it. They look similar, (with kind of a gross white spot in the center) and an abscess may need antibiotics.
