Check if most symptoms of any of these medicines match with your symptoms:
Anthracinum 30 : For big boils (carbuncles), which occur one after another, causing intolerable burning and giving off thick, dark, bloody, offensive discharge. This medicine often follows Arsenic 30 well.
Arsenic 30 : For pus-filled boils, with severe burning and itching. The discharge from the burst boil has a foul, cadaveric odour. Restlessness, fear (of death) and physical prostration are other features of this medicine.
Belladonna 30 : Boils resembling eruptions of measles. The skin around the boils is shining-red, hot and burning. There is severe throbbing pain in the boil, which worsens on touch but lessens from warm applications. Belladonna should be thought of, before pus has formed.
Hepar sulph 30 : Boils with severe splinter-like pain and sensitiveness - the victim cannot even bear the touch of clothes. On bursting, the boil discharges a thick pus, smelling like old cheese. Intolerance of cold weather/foods, an unhealthy skin (every small injury suppurating) and profuse sour perspiration are other features of this remedy.
Silicea 30 : Useful for maturing a boil so that it bursts open. Unhealthy skin (every little injury suppurating), intolerance of cold weather but a liking of cold drinks and food (ice-cream) and obstinate constipation (the stool receding back after coming out) are other pointers to this remedy.
Tarentula cub 30 : For big, burning, painful boils (carbuncles) with red-purple skin.
If the selected medicine does not help, consult a competent homoeopathic doctor.
Once the boil has burst open, the ulcer needs regular dressings to prevent contamination.
