don't ride a bicycle

Hot bath or shower, and squeeze it. It will hurt like fuck a little bit. Germolene/Savlon on it when you're done.

God I'm wincing just reading that BecauseImWorthit, and roffling at the other 2 answers.

Poor OP, I think I had one once and it went of its own accord without any squeezing.

MrsDoylesMole Mon 16-Feb-09 21:46:09

squeeze it?
ooh no

Littlefish Mon 16-Feb-09 21:46:37

don't do show jumping.

BecauseImWorthIt Mon 16-Feb-09 21:46:49

But squeezing is so satisfying!

Have a hot bath with salt in it and squeeze it whilst in the water.
I have had one and it fecking hurt shock

BecauseImWorthIt Mon 16-Feb-09 21:47:24

And no need to worry about scars on the fanjo, unless you show yours professionally

dearprudence Mon 16-Feb-09 21:47:28

Hmmm, white head...

Draw a face on it?

MrsDoylesMole Mon 16-Feb-09 21:47:41

<points boil in squonk and morningpaper's direction>

AnastasiaBeaverhausen Mon 16-Feb-09 21:48:05

God my eyes are watering now.

nickschick Mon 16-Feb-09 21:48:24

Didnt someone else have this lately hmmmmmmm who could that be????grin

nickschick Mon 16-Feb-09 21:49:12

It might me a blocked bartholomews cyst???

nickschick Mon 16-Feb-09 21:50:05

it might go green and your fanjo will drop off - but whatever happens my Nanna will have already suffered it far far worse.

morningpaper Mon 16-Feb-09 21:50:22

I would SQUEEZE in bath

most satisfactory

wait until husband has left the room though - spoils one's feminine mystique

MrsDoylesMole Mon 16-Feb-09 21:51:40

who else?

Oovavu Mon 16-Feb-09 21:52:15

ooo I had one of these recently. It really hurt when I wiped myself after the loo. I mean really <wince>. It felt like a little pea in my flap (which was nice)

and then after a day or so it popped of its own accord whilst doing above activity.

(and it was strangely satisfying <boak> blush)

MrsDoylesMole Mon 16-Feb-09 21:53:01

Whoa fanjo threads move too fast.

I dont want to squeeze it.
Any volunteers ? grin

Oovavu Mon 16-Feb-09 21:53:30

and agree with mp - not to be done in dh's vicinity. Ranks alongside with showing him the fascinating contents of your mooncup

AnastasiaBeaverhausen Mon 16-Feb-09 21:53:36

You'll have to set up a mirror won't you to squeeze it?

Get yourself a wooden spoon to bite on while you're doing it (and hope that the window cleaner doens't happen to be on his rounds).

MrsDoylesMole Mon 16-Feb-09 21:54:53

oovavu-Please say it wont pop whilst i am at work.I have visions of a loud popping sound and cue me sloshing around in a pus puddle.

Oovavu Mon 16-Feb-09 21:55:20

no don't pop it yourself. it will ripen and pop on its own

<boak again at 'ripen'> what's wrong with me?

LynetteScavo Mon 16-Feb-09 21:55:21

What's the diameter of the boil? Just so I can properly imagine it.
