Inflammation / Boil / Bisul

The title says it all.
I got a bloody, nasty inflammation a.k.a boil or bisul in Malay.

Fortunately, It is located on my forearm, near the elbow.
Luckily, it's not on my face or my eyes or even worse, my ass.
Okay, scientifically, boils or inflammations are usually caused by an infection of bacteria or parasites (hey, i was a Bio student okay).

Yeah, it looks like..

However, the old wives tales (kata orang-orang tua) look at it a bit differently.
Usually, when there is a bisul near a person's eye, the old folks would always say that it's because of mengintai or mengendap or skodeng (peeping tom).
Or if you got a bisul on your ass, that's because you sat on a pillow. Sitting on a pillow is a no-no in Malay culture, or so they say lah.

But this bisul is located near my elbow, so what could my elbow possibly peeped at?
And how the fuck could this elbow look?
Elbows got eye meh?
And i certainly didn't put or rest my elbow on a pillow.

And i don't see any reason why my elbow is infected. I didn't do anything, i didn't play in the mud or something like that.

I'm not showing off my biceps here

Whatever it is, it is bloody painful.
And it keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

Will it explode?
I seriously have know idea what to do.

If i'm not mistaken, the best way to cure a bisul is by applying kapur sirih on the affected area.
Now where the hell do i get a kapur sirih?

And some people say it's best to use the leaf of a hibiscus (bunga raya).
Now THAT is patriotic all right.

Hey, at least i got a tit on my arm!

And a friend suggested for bekam using lintah (leeches).

Err.. i'm not really keen on the idea of an animal sucking my body parts.
I would consider humans though. haha

So guys, help me out here!
Any suggestions?

hehehe. Cantik je bentuk dia. Kata2 orang tua, sebaiknya jangan diusik dulu bisul tersebut. Tunggu sampai dia masak. Dah masak buat prose mcm bekam. Ada jugak yg kata letak kapur sirih. Tapi rasa2nya langkah yang paling bernas sekali, jumpa la doctor. :)
