Quite happy with the results!

Anyone else have any herbal remedies they use?

Not for the dogs, but when I start feeling a cold coming on I take Echinacea. It boosts the immune system and I have read that it is also a natural antibiotic. Love the stuff!

For calming dogs when they are upset-like for fireworks phobia's, thunderstorms, etc I like Melatonin. I also use it for my girl to aid in calming her so she can learn things better-she is hyper and borderline neurotic.

Do you have any idea what caused it?
When we were little, my Mom use to scrape a potato or tomato, lay it on the infection, cover it with a small piece of Sarah Wrap and tape it on for a few hours at a time. It was amazing to see how a vegetable would draw out the pus!
If youíd like to try a homeopathic, internally, here are suggestions for stages of boils or skin eruptions also some poultices and supplements. For the homeopathic's, you would give 4 little globules 4 to 6 times daily until improvement is noticed, then cut back.
You may be able to get these at a health food store (not GNC) or Whole Foods.
*Belladonna: in the early stages when itís painful to them, when the skin is hot and red.
*Mercurius: if there is pus
*Apis: if itís shinny and angry, red and swelling
*Silica: if there is a foreign matter in the abscess or it is a reoccurring infection. Silica can also speed up the eruption of the boil to help it discharge.
*Calendula tincture: is also a good compress for healing the opened wound.
*Comfrey: is another great infection healing herb used as a poultice or internally
*A Garlic poultice and taken with food will also fight infection and heal.
*I have read that taking kelp and/or a multi-mineral supplement with zinc is great at helping support the system while going thru this.

You are very welcome!
Since it is definitely a puncture, try Ledum for sure, as it is specifically for punctures. We used this on cats when they had a fight and they'd get those little holes in their face!
If the boil has some of the other signs too, you can use 2 homeopathic's, just at different times and always away from food & water (about 20/30 minutes) and in a clean mouth.
Poor thing must be miserable! Hope this helps your baby!
