Any suggestions for what should be done with this? It's a recurring boil on my partner's back, looking particularly nasty. He does have a doc app. But not until next week. We tried magnesium sulphate but he said it was making it really sore. I have been just doing a warm compress every evening.

Well, it's certainly ripe, nice head on it. Must be annoying for you partner that it's recurring. Not for sporner corner though, the gift that keeps on giving.
So when you pop it, is there no core that comes out?

It doesn’t quite look ripe enough to me.

Milk bottle trick?

JustMumNowNotMe Mon 23-Oct-17 18:23:34

Oh yes!!! That will blow and when it does it will be glorious!

You could hot bottle it.

Oh my god. What I would give....

Most popular post I've ever started! [Grin]
I am not a sporner and am quite reluctant to actually pop it. Bit worried about infection etc. Saying that, it does seem like it's going to go no matter what, so want to do what's best. What is the milk bottle trick?

Are there some tiny ones around it?

(Can't believe I'm sitting here on a Monday night looking at complete strangers pimples).

Squeeze it already

Fekko Mon 23-Oct-17 20:21:49

I can't believe they haven't already!

Thebookswereherfriends Mon 23-Oct-17 20:22:45

Yes, 3 or 4 tiny pimples.

I’d be squeezing it smile

Fekko Mon 23-Oct-17 20:26:54

It's going to hurt with those tiny ones. Poor guy! At least it's not under a bra strap (they are really sore).

Littlebatcalledlucille Mon 23-Oct-17 20:31:56

I beg of you!!!!!!


Oh and erm, yeah,any chance of filming it?
Go on it's begging to be squeezed!

WanderingTrolley1 Mon 23-Oct-17 20:34:37

I’d squeeze/stick a needle in it!

OhWhatFuckeryIsThisNow Mon 23-Oct-17 20:39:37

Hot cloths, for ages. Get some magnesium sulphate and plaster it. Repeat.when you are ready get two tissues round your fingers, place on either side and kind of press and pull apart. If it's ready it may squirt, sorry. You will know if it's empty because a harder core will come out. Now This is the really important bit, get someone to video it and show us!

OhWhatFuckeryIsThisNow Mon 23-Oct-17 20:42:21

Milk bottle trick-fill bottle with hot water, empty. Run neck of bottle under hot tap. Place over boil. If it's ready, splat. If not, repeat.

Wolfiefan Mon 23-Oct-17 20:47:02

Heat a clean glass bottle for 10-15 minutes.
Place neck of bottle round boil.
Hold until bottle cools.
Boil should burst.
Disclaimer. I've never done it. I don't know if it's safe and I too would worry about infection!

Floralnomad Mon 23-Oct-17 20:49:50

If that was my dh I would be squeezing that .

KatoPotato Mon 23-Oct-17 21:02:13

That looks fit to go! I’d place ‘peace man’ fingers over it, flat pressure into the back.... booom!!

Or... calpol syringe!

Thebookswereherfriends Mon 23-Oct-17 21:08:55

I'm going in! Not going to be able to film it I'm afraid. Will update though!

Beammeup11 Mon 23-Oct-17 21:13:32

Update already, I was scrolling praying there would be a happy ending!!
