Staph is the name given to a group of bacteria which commonly cause skin infections when the skin is damaged. Staph can cause boils so treatment is warm compresses and antibiotic treatment.
It is painful and is not serious at the moment but if the infection is not completely cleared up, the risk is that the infection gets into the bloodstream.
Neosporin may help depending on the size of the boil but you may need oral antibiotics.
