Lanced a boil on my leg?

I lanced a boil on my leg because it hurt so much, so I popped it and all the puss came out, but the surrounding area is still red and swollen hard. I doused the needle in Peroxide twice but didn't disinfect my leg, will this result into a more sever infection? and plus one of my friends squeezed it to check for any more left over puss, but there was not.  Does this mean he will get it too? I mean i disinfected the wound a couple more times to reassure safety, but will this result into an severe infection?
