Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
The good thing is that the pain has lessened.
It does take a few days for the boil to drain out completely.
It will heal up in a few days time.
Not something to worry about.
Just take the antibiotic as prescribed.
