How To Treat A Boil On My Bum
See podiatry: Your description is a bit broad to answer the question. A little more history about the condition is needed -- did you hurt it, how long has it been there, have you attempted to treat it, do you have any medical conditions that may have induced it, etc. I would advise that you see a podiatrist to have it examined. ...Read more
Canker sores: I've tried many things but this is what i've found most helpful: use natural toothpaste without sodium lauralates, take probiotics or yogurt, apply liquid seal like zilactin to protect from biting/irritating, avoid ones with pain killers like Benzocaine as it irritates more than any pain relief. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blocked duct: By blister, I am going to assume a bubble on your inner lip. It is most likely a pinched off saliva gland with the exit blocked. Increasing your saliva flow may reopen it. You can do that with sugarless sour hard candy. If things don't improve in a few days get it checked because there are other possibilities. ...Read more
Thanks for asking!: You need to go to a physician and be examined because this type of abcess, often referred to as a pilonidal cyst, can end up in a very serious infection for which significant surgical excision is required.

Foot Blister: Smaller blisters, ones in which the fluid inside isn't visible, should generally be left alone.

Local wound care: Local wound care usually involves washing with a gentle soap and water twice daily, applying antibiotic ointment and monitoring for signs of infection. Increased redness, swelling and pain, especially when combined with the appearance of pus indicates an infection which should be evaluated by a primary care physician. ...Read more

Clean and protected: The type of advice I'm giving depends on the "cut" that you have. But if there is any sort of injury where the skin is open, make sure that the area is first clean. You can use antibacterial soap and water. Another cleaning agent is diluted white vinegar mixed with water (1 part white vinegar mixed with 4 parts water). After the area is cleaned, then apply an ointment (Vaseline) with a bandage ...Read more
Warm compress: Apply warm compresses 3 to 4 times a day and it will come to a head and open up on its own or you may have to see a medical practitioner to have it drained. If it comes very often,avoid shaving your armpit and make sure you are not reacting to your deodorant. If no relief see a surgeon./dermatologist ...Read more
Warm compress &: Tylenol (acetaminophen). You may get by with letting it pop, aided by warm compress, and relieve the pain with tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin and the like. If that does not relieve the boil in a couple of days, you should see your doctor to see if needs to be drained. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
