Skin boils—or pus-filled bumps on the skin—are a surprisingly common problem that can cause tenderness, pain, and embarrassment. Thankfully, Affinity Urgent Care makes receiving treatment for skin boils and other non-life-threatening health concerns simple. Our fully equipped urgent care location near Hitchcock, Texas, is open every day during extended hours and welcomes pediatric and adult patients on a walk-in basis.
Do All Skin Boils Require Treatment?
No, not all skin boils require treatment, but treating the boil may be preferable if it’s located on a visible area such as the face, neck, or arm. It’s also a good idea to visit a trusted immediate care provider like Affinity Urgent Care for treatment if a skin boil:
Occurs in a group (known as a carbuncle)
Develops alongside a fever
Causes intense pain
Goes away and then returns
Remains after two weeks
Does not improve with self-care measures, such as placing a warm, wet compress on the boil to encourage natural drainage (never prick or pop a boil at home!)
A medical professional can safely drain skin boils, bandage the area, prevent infection, and prescribe antibiotics for more severe boils, if necessary.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
