A boil was an infected hair follicle filled with pus.
In 2268, when attempting to express the immense difficulty of performing surgery to reunite his brain with his body, Spock said that he would trust Doctor McCoy to remove a splinter or lance a boil but not to attempt such a surgical procedure. (TOS: "Spock's Brain")
