I am a 30 year old female. For the past 4 days I have been in excruciating pain from a boil located right to the left of my 'u know what' towards my groin area. Wearing panties and pants is like hell!! I had a boil in the past located on the right side that I got lanced in the ER a couple of years ago. It was very embarrassing and sooo painful. This time I wanted to find some remedy I could do at home to get rid of it. My boil had grown to the size of a golf ball, maybe a little larger, and would not come to a head. I was getting very desperate and came close to just going to an urgent care clinic. I tried multiple remedies I found online to include, hot water, glass bottle, warm compress, salt, toothpaste, antibacterial soap, bactine, boil ease, baking powder, peroxide, oxypads, ..... I finally went to cvs and got some tea tree oil, ichtammol ointment, and adhesive gauze pads. I got home last night around 7pm, took a shower, and applied the tea tree oil then the ichtammol ointment. I covered it with a gauze pad and layed down. I couldn't help but to keep checking it to see if it made progress....and nothing. It was still there and still hurting. I cleaned it, applied more tea tree oil and ichtammol ointment, and covered it with new gauze. I went to sleep around 10:30pm. I woke up around 3:30am this morning to use the bathroom and noticed that the gauze pad was coming off and filled with nasty goo. I peeled the gauze all the way off and say my boil draining. It was white and creamy with traces of blood. The pressure has definitely gone down but it still has a ways to go. I washed it and reapplied the tea tree oil and ichtammol ointment and clean gauze pad. It is now 6 am and it's been 2 hours since I last dressed it and I'm in a lot lot lot less pain, thank God! I will wait until around 8 or 9am to check it and redress it. I'm feeling very good about this!! Thank u everyone for taking the time to post about this and help people like me out.
