old wives tale that seems to work in our house -

warm some milk, put a small piece of bread in the milk and let it soak up as much milk as possible. Remove the bread, letting the excess milk drip out. I know this sounds disgusting, but tape the milk-soaked bread to the sore and go to sleep. In the morning there will be no more pus. The bread/milk works as a suction to remove any pus and liquid. This allows you to combat the rest of the infection (if there is any left) by an antibacterial ointment.

This trick works great on boils aswell!
