Actually there are certain boils that can last for months without change in size or color. These types of boils can be misdiagnosed as scar tissue from a prior zit / boil due to scar tissue forming around it and making a 'shell' around them. Any suspect boil that size you should goto urgent care or the ER to have a sample taken of the area as it may not go away, and could become a big problem
