Large boil on buttock

Hi, I've developed a slightly large and a sort of painful boil (dark pink to red in colour) on my right buttock. Normally I would not have bothered about it, however I will be traveling overseas in a week (for about 25 days) and I would definitely not want this to aggravate to something more painful/serious. What can I do to treat it as soon as possible? Any useful ointment / external application?
