In brief: Blackhead or boil?

If you have a blackhead, there are any number of cosmetic products that claim to help remove them. If you have a boil, warm compresses (don't burn yourself!) may be applied to focus your body's immune system on it.
Draw a circle around periphery of boil. If boil expands beyond circle, then go see doc to get it drained. Or go see doc if pain increases beyond what can be managed w/OTC pain relief.
