Hi, Yes it will help you.
Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim) is a prescription antibiotic approved to treat a variety of different infections. In addition to treating infections, it is also approved to prevent one particular infection, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, in people with a weakened immune system.
Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.
Watchful waiting - boils will often self-resolve.
Surgical lancing and drainage
Good skin hygiene
Avoid picking at the boil
Avoid squeezing the boil
Antibiotics - if there is surrounding cellulitis, multiple or recurrent boils

Take care and good luck.
