Ouchie.  I have zero experience, but if you're questioning your diagnosis, a pic would probably help.  If you're looking for advice, bump :)

Aren't boils a big skin infection? I would go to the doctor tomorrow and have it evaluted just to be safe. Maybe they can give you a cream or something to ease the pain.

Please go to the doctor. I had what I thought was a boil and it turned out to be a severe Staph infection from a bug bite. It grew to the size of a melon overnight. PLEASE go right away. Especially if it is hot and aching. I wish you the best.

Im 50min from a hospital ..... what will they do?? I'm scared they will just tell me hot compresses and peroxide or just to keep it clean ...... I can't afford to waste time and gas money if they won't or can't make the pain go away

Go see a doctor. My friends DD(2) had a boil on her thigh and she couldn't walk, it ended up being mrsa. Go to the er or make an appointment first thing in the morning. If anything they can drain it for you. Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon!

I don't think a trip to the ER is necessary but I do think you should make an appt with your dr for tomorrow. A boil needs medical treatment and a lot of times, an antibiotic.
