i have a boil on my side thigh ?
I AM A VIRGIN so it has nothing to do with diseases.
i just had it today since i started walking after school it was hurting and its like a lump and its a little bit hard and warm when i touch it .. i think its called a boil
i cant go to school tomorrow walking like godzilla
it is not a zit or ingrown hair
should i just wait till it has a white tip and let my mom pop it ?
i know it sounds really disgusting but it makes it heal faster and less pain cause i used to have it alot
what should i do ?
and i don't need to go to the doctor for sure

Suggestion put a warm tea bag on it. It will make the head of the boil or blemish come to its point then you or you mom can extract it. Did the boil or blister appear between your groin area and your thighs. It could be your legs rubbed together making the skin sensitive to touch and it became a blister. The other solution is bath in a bathtub with salt water and see if it turns yellow it could be a hair or pimple or even a lump of fat or grease. Grab a needle and gently insert it into the yellow head or tender area releasing the fluid, this will allow it to drain and it will heal quickly. Apply alcohol after extracting the fluid to kill of any bacteria that could cause an abscess or infection at the treated area.
Depends on how big the boil is and where it is located.

those are PAINFULL! I would apply warm compresses to help it come to a head faster and when it does, do not squeeze as that can damage the tissues around it and actually push bacteria deeper into it. Open it gently, from the side, with a sharp sterilized needle. A sewing needle is generally sharper than a stick pin. Once it is open, then squeeze very gently from as far around it as you can, wiping away any and all pus with a clean cloth, tissue, etc. Then take a nice long hot bath, washing gently. After your bath, apply some bacitracin or other antibiotic cream and cover with a bandage. You may need to open again in a day or so to empty it again but always apply warm moist compresses at least a couple of times a day. What that does is increase blood flow to the inflamed area and speed healing as the white cells in your blood does its job.
