My DD suffers from boils and has recently gotten another one under her arm.
Seen a doctor today and has been put on antibiotics and Bactroban cream for up the nose. However she said to bring her back tomorrow if not improved to have it lanced.
Any previous boils she has had have always drained by themselves, however this one looks a bit more severe than the others so could quite possible need to be lanced.
BUT I don't want this done just at the doctors, as my mother also has had them and describes the pain as unbearable when they have to lance them.
Has anyone child had to have this done? And did they put them under to do it or was it just done at the doctors?
It is clearly very painful and she won't let us hardly look at it let alone touch it.
