I've had several boils. The best remedy I have found is campho-phenique. You can by the liquid but I recommend the gel they make for cold sores. Coat the boil liberally before bed and the next morning you should see improvent in the boil, if not drainage. It generally worked for me the next morning, the boil would be draining and I could just go ahead and squeeze the gunk out but it may take 2-4 days. In the mean time the analgesic in the cold sore gel seems to help the pain. Good Luck!
