every boil is different
some can respond to Augmentin antibiotic
some boils need other types of antibiotics.
some boils need to be lanced and drained by a surgeon for the infection to drain out for the infection to heal.
she may have to go back to her doctor for other treatments if this antibiotic doesn't work
boils don't tend to be contagious. she should be able to have her cardioversion procedure Wednesday.
she should just let her doctors know she is taking antibiotics for it
that is fine.
