I Just had an infected Boil near my anus drained- how much longer will the pain last & is a 6 hr trip
Not long- 1 day
there may be lingering soreness but draining the boil is usually great relief
if there is a lot of surrounding infected tissue, it could last another day with antibiotics
I would not recommend a six hour trip but if the trip is important, you don't have to cancel.
Carry some pain meds just in case, like acetaminophen or ibuprofen
