I have a boil, red lump w small protruding pus, treat it w warm compress 3x & amoxicillin 2x, the center healed so there's no way to drain, is it ok?

Boil: The combination of hot compresses and antibiotics may have already helped to decrease the infection causing the boil. Usually it takes more than 2 doses to get rid of the infection. I would continue hot compresses and wait and see if the infection decreases. If it is increasing in size seek medical attention immediately. Keep the area clean and dry if possible. ...Read more

Experienced hands: If something can be felt but not seen then often a clinician can determine the most likely diagnosis by palpating the area in physical exam. Superficial blood clots or varicosities are easily palpated, but more serious deep venous thrombosis usually are not. Cysts, lymph nodes, and a variety of skin nodules can be found behind the knee too. ...Read more
