Really hot water and witch hazel will cure boils. As soon as you notice one developing just heat up some water in microwave or on the stove. Get a rag (water will be really hot), dip it into the water and pour some witch hazel on it. Hold it against the boil until rag cools down. Repeat often as needed sometimes it will drain immediately. if not then the next day, but it will stop the pain.
