Hello, good night Akin Patih ..
Something that resembles a boil on the skin of the scrotum can be caused by several possible conditions:
folliculitis, which is inflammation of the hair follicles (hair root canals) found in the skin of the scrotum / testicles. This inflammatory condition is caused by a bacterial infection. Folliculitis is characterized by small, pimple-like bumps that are filled with pus and have a yellow, painful spot in the center.
furuncles / boils, generally larger in size than folliculitis
lice / mite infection on pubic hair (pthirus pubis). Symptoms of this condition include the presence of small, bluish red spots on the genitals, itching, and visible blood spots on underwear.
To confirm the diagnosis of your disease, direct examination is needed. Therefore, we recommend that you check with your doctor directly. Regarding what drugs you should take, we also cannot say without knowing your diagnosis. Generally, in a case like yours, treatment is needed in the form of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory in the form of creams / ointments (external drugs), oral medication in the form of painkillers, and oral drugs in the form of antibiotics if the skin disorder experienced is severe / extensive. Avoid breaking the boil, yes, as this will have an impact on new infections which can worsen the current condition and extend the healing time. What you can do includes:
Maintain genital hygiene, by bathing twice a day and changing clothes at least 2 times a day after bathing
avoid damp conditions in the genital area
avoid wearing pants that do not absorb sweat and are tight
if the pain is very disturbing, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as paracetamol
That's all, hope this helps ...
