How Can You Make a Boil Come to a Head?

Report as

To make a boil come to a head safely you can apply some over the counter cream. This will draw the pus and liquid to the surface while drying the boil out. It is never a good idea to apply heat to a boil because you can severely burn your skin and it is never a good idea to pop a boil yourself because you run the risk of spreading the infection.

You can make a boil come to a head by applying a hot compress or a heating pad to it. It may still take a few days, so be patient and do not pop the boil until a head has formed.

Hot water compresses are very good for bringing a boil to a head. From there it may be squeezed and emptied. You may also wish to cover with a bandage and antibiotic ointment.
