ok so iv had a boil in my armpit for like 2 months... it wont go away... finally i tried popping it... i found out that its a particular bra thats cause it. this one bra for whatever reason the underwire make it huge. i havent work the bra in 2 weeks and i still have it. everyday i have to squeeze it because it gets so big and KILLS. if i go to the doc is there anything they can do? like lance it?
yes is it red and tender to the touch.. could be infected! I had this tiny flesh colored bump for about 4 bumps swore it just a lil blackhead.. Well it ended up being a sabaceous cyst aka swollen oil gland! I have to put hot wash rags on it 2-3 times a day.. this is day 4 now and its getting much better. They can drain it but I dont think they are since im pregnant
They may lance it just to clean it all out. They will also probably give you antibiotics to clear up any lingering infection. If you are popping it daily and it still comes back i'd say its time to get it taken care of. Sounds super painful. Hope you get some relief soon.
Depending on how deep it is, they may lance it. I had one on my arm from staph infection (the health department gave me a shot and it turned into a staph boil..) and they lanced it. Took the pain away!
Try putting a hot compress on it and soaking in a tub of epsom salt and hot water, then squeezing it.
I had one of these close to my hip it looked like a mosquito bite and after a month it was just bigger and more painful, the ended up citting it open and draining it and packing it with medicated guaze which I had to changed twice day after the first day. I had cream and antibiotics as well.
