boils/spots on pct

i had 3 spots on my neck appear whil on pct, they were red painfull to touch, and hard underneath, i have been picking at them couldnt resist,but 1 of them has swollen right up, looks like i got a small cherry tomatoa on my neck , any 1 else had anything like this? im thinking maybe its got infected? dosent seem to be a head on it, so maybe a boil? i am half tempted to stick a pin in it to see if it drains it off, but OUCH!

    Yes common due to hormonal fluctuation. I know ppl say don't p1ss about with them but I do. I normally get them on the inner chest at the sternum. You're right, there is no head so when attempting them it's a case of praying that it will explode otherwise it means sh1t loads of pain. If there is a particularly stubborn one my advice is to leave it completely for a day or two. It may start to subside on it's own, but if it hasn't, you've a much better chance of popping it after the time has elapsed.

    pmsl oh good man! I thought you'd have a medical reason as to why boils shouldn't be burst, squeezed or touched. lmao.

    Let's face it, we know it can go either way... burst (a great relief) or INTENSE pain, for about 40 seconds.

    The worst thing is when you get a boil on your back that you just can't reach, so you need to recruit the GF for boil bursting detail. And you just know that if she doesn't pinch it from far enough either side it just ain't gonna do it... and you're gonna be in agony.

    Double edged sword GF's IMO. Can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em

    Oh btw wothefunk I wouldn't go sticking a pin in it if I were you, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't help, only get it infected. I'm sure others will give their advice tho' : )
