What are some good home remedies for boils?

My son has developed a boil on his bottom. He is in a lot of pain. I'm taking him to the doctor this morning but, I was just wondering if anyone out there had some suggestions for relieving the pain, if only temporarily.

  • Rite Aid carries this miracle ointment called "Boil Ease" in a white tube with black and red lettering.(I think it's also boxed, like toothpaste) It's got something in it that really relieves the pain. I haven't been able to find it anywhere else, but you might be luckier where you live.

  • Try a warm compress. Take a washcloth and run it under warm/hot water and hold it there for a few minutes.
