Thanks for your query and an elucidate history and a clear picture.
You had popped the boil, washed with warm water, applied hydrogen peroxide, applied medihoney and wrapped it.
It now appears white.
The whiteness indicated that his is the dead fascia.
This needs to be surgically removed and the wound be kept clean.
Also needed are antibiotics and supportive treatment.
