Warm compresses: A boil is a skin infection that starts in a hair follicle or oil gland. Use warm compresses. The relaxed and gently heated pore will release the pus underneath and bring relief.

Get a real Rx: Cystic acne is a serious, chronic disease that you cannot manage by home remedies. Usually it requires isotretinoin. If this affects a young person for whom you are responsible, it would be a terrible mistake not to take them to get scientific treatment. Leaving junior scarred will be a cause for lifelong resentment. Please do what you must. Thanks for understanding. ...Read more
