In brief: Warm compresses
If small, start w/ warm compresses, they can sometimes drain on their own, while waiting for an appt with the doc.
Do not try to pop, squeeze or cut into them. I suggest seeing your doctor if you're not seeing a head to the boil, there's a lot of redness, pain, or you're having fevers.
