I also JUST had a boil on my hoo-haw (not cool!) I treated with icthammol. It took about 12-14 hours to work, but it did! I had a boil on my butt 6 months ago and I tried to pick it. DON'T DO THAT. It ended up being a 2.5 week long ordeal and I ended up in the ER. This time I tried the Vicks Vaporub, I think it helped, but the icthammol worked! I have horses so I already had some sitting around, thank goodness! It was only a 5 day ordeal this time. I'm going to start showering with antibacterial soap and see if that helps. I had never had a boil until this year, and I'm 35 years old.
