I had a huge boil next to my, um, haha. I could hardly walk, couldn't sit down, & even laying down comfortably was something of a challenge. I tried soaking in a hot tub & that just made the boil swell & become more painful. I tried hot tea bags & spent more time trying to keep them in place. As a last resort, I decided to try Crest toothpaste. Every time I used the restroom, I cleaned the area with a warm washcloth & reapplied a thick layer of toothpaste. By the time I sat down for dinner, the boil had ruptured & drained down to less than half the size that it was when I woke up. The whole process took less than 12 hours!
