Brief Answer:
Do not break the boils

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

You have done right, Soframycin is fine.

Do not break the boils.

You can apply Aminacrine (Burnol) or Silver nitrate gel (silverex ) from now on.

The bubble will break o its own and the area will dry up. if you see pus building up or an increase in pain, then you may have to consult the doctor.
