Hello there. I can understand your concern. If you have finished experimenting on your wife 's boil, then kindly consult a physician in person for proper treatment. Only topical medicines won't help. Oral formulation will also be required. People think that they can save time and money by doing home/self treatment but instead they end up spending even more. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Please consult a doctor immediately for proper treatment. Applying ointment is not going to help. She needs to take oral medicines also.

Hi there...if you start you using home remedies or wrong topical creams for simple wounds, then you will only complicate the wound. The boil was probably a deep follicultits or furuncle, which required topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin or fusidic acid. Now that it is complicated, it will require oral and topical antibiotics, anti inflammatory medications. So kindly consult a dermatologist or general surgeon for further evaluation.
