Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you knew of any good ways of getting rid of boils and/or abscesses... I had the first one of these in my life about 3-4 months ago on my stomach; I let it go for a week or so before caving in and going to the doctor. They tested for staph and MRSA and both came back negative, and then they proceeded to squeeze the ever-loving piss out of it for about 5 minutes, packed it, gave me some antibiotics and sent me on my way... I'm trying to avoid such a pleasant experience as that again... I've got another one now, this time bordering on the rear of my left hip and my left butt-cheek... Looks and feels the same as the one I had on my stomach a few months back. Only now I'm in-between jobs, have no insurance currently, and no source of income for the next 3 weeks or so until I start my new position. It ruptured yesterday and has drained a significant amount, but it's still hard and painful... I'm keeping an eye out for signs of more serious infection (fever, nausea, etc.), but so far the only thing that is in agony is this abomination on my butt. I've been letting it drain on its own over the past 2 days, cleaning it with rubbing alcohol, followed by hydrogen peroxide, followed by Neosporin and a bandage... Will this suffice, or do any of you who have been plagued by these things before have any home remedies to speak of?
