Answer

Heat is the best remedy to draw out a boil or a pimple. Experts at Prevention suggest that the application of heat to the site for about 30 minutes three times a day will draw a boil to a head.

Pimples, much like boils, spread by hand-to-face contact. Apply heat to pimples and boils with a hot towel, washcloth or a heating pad. WebMD recommends contacting a doctor if you have a fever, a reoccurring boil or one that is on the face or near the spine. There are several potions and creams on the market, but experts agree that heat works best.
