    Default too much info perhaps?

    K, I got this boil thing between my legs, got it from chaffing in the humidity I think. Problem is that it hurts every time I walk, not tones, but annoyingly so. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is a white spot on it.
    My question:
    Should I pop it and squeeze the core out, or apply something to it, or leave it?
    Thanks for your ideas.

    soak in the tub...then squeeze when it is soft - much easier on your pain threshold

    Next time just man up and squeeze it. You usually like pain and the fact you are getting soft on the pain thing is scaring me
    When I make up a lie and can not back out of it, I will just say I am leaving town for a funeral and that should cover up the lie.
    Self-laudation abounds among the unpolished; but nothing can stamp a person more sharply as ill-bred.

    it's healing now. I couldn't pop it completely, I'd need a scalpel, the core was the size of a ping pong ball....

    puttin a slice of onion on it(gross, i know) helps it open up, drain and kills some of the infection.

    Sounds like you need to see a doctor about this. I had a friend once that had a bad boil and had to have it removed and then packed. You really have to be careful when popping those, infection can spread throughout your body.

    I agree. They usually come back. I know someone that had this and they had to have it removed by a surgeon. They had made it spread by squeezing it.

    oh, I got this fixed a while ago, I called the tele-health line, and because I'm diabetic, they recommended I see a doctor just because of the risk of infection. When I told her where it was, and asked if there is anything I could try to do first she told me since it is broken, soak it in a tub for 15 min a few times a day, pat it dry, apply some Polysporin and cover it with a 4 x 4 inch gauze every day till it goes away. She told me if I don't notice any difference in a day or if it gets worse to suck it up and see a doctor. But thankfully it cleared up... I'm a little bashful at times
