Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

I assume there is no infection and the boil has cleared up? A popped boil can leave a little hole in the skin. When did this happen? In time, this hole can "fill in" a bit but depending on the size, it may be pitted for life. Use of a good moisturizing cream (or a mix of cream and tea tree oil) can help.
