Dear customer,

Thank you for information,

The boil is caused by infectious cause and can be treated with suitable antibiotics.The incision and drainage is required in some cases.

You should also get checked for diabetes which may also increase the risk of infection.

The other possible cause of such swelling like lymph node enlargement, cyst, abscess should also be ruled out.
