Hello Anonymous,

For your own health, and the health of your unborn baby, you need to have this boil looked at by your doctor. Your doctor can evaluate it and recommend the appropriate treatment.

A boil is a skin infection caused by staphylococcal bacteria. The bacteria enters the body through tiny nicks or cuts in the skin or can travel down the hair to the hair follicle.

My concern for recommending a home remedy is that you are pregnant and a boil is an infection. You do not want to put your unborn child at risk. That is why I recommend you seek medical attention.
