Go see the MD: If it won't stop bleeding is a sign that it may not be a simple "boil" but something more of concern.

See a doctor before: secondary bacterial infection insues. Pus should come out but not continual bleeding. There's something more going on, and it requires medical attention quickly if it hasn't stopped bleeding yet.
