Self care advice: Please see below for more information on how to treat a boil and advice on how to prevent them.

  • Most boils get better without the need for medical treatment.
  • One of the best ways to speed up healing is to apply a warm, moist face cloth to the boil for 10-20 minutes, three or four times a day.
  • The heat increases the amount of blood circulating around the boil, which sends more infection-fighting white blood cells to the area. When the boil bursts, cover it with sterile gauze or a dressing to prevent the spread of infection. Afterwards, wash your hands thoroughly using hot water and soap.
  • Never squeeze or pierce a boil because it could spread the infection.
  • You can use over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, to help relieve any pain caused by the boil.

Preventing boils and carbuncles

You cannot always avoid getting a boil or carbuncle, but these simple steps can reduce your risk:

  • Wash your skin regularly using a mild antibacterial soap
  • Carefully clean any cuts, wounds or grazes (even small ones)
  • Cover cuts, wounds and grazes with a sterile bandage until they heal
  • Eat healthily and exercise regularly to boost your immune system
