I have found that every time I get an abscess or a boil applying a thin piece of fatback (available at most grocery stores) works wonders! I had a very very painful one a few days ago and after applying the fatback and leaving it overnight it had opened and started draining by morning. Just use a large bandage to keep it in place and catch the drainage.

THIS REALLY WORKS. I HAD A CYST ON MY CHIN AND PUT SOME BACON FAT PIECES ON A PAPER TOWEL AND TAPED IT TO MY CHIN OVERNIGHT. I TOOK IT OFF AND IT WAS RED, BUT WENT AHEAD AND PUT IT BACK ON FOR A COUPLE MORE HOURS. I TOOK IT OFF AND THE HEAD WAS RIGHT THERE AT THE SURFACE...YES THIS ONE WORKS...

I'm a licensed skincare professional and what you are recommending is not a healthy choice for your skin. Heat and cool compresses help, but do not attempt to heal this alone. You should go see a doctor or a dermatologist ASAP. It could turn into something very serious and make you very sick. Don't play doctor, go see one.

I had a skin infection several years ago under my left knee, and it wouldn't come to a head...turned out to be an ingrown hair and possibly some gravel from when I fell on a bike in earlier years, but it just wouldn't cure no matter what I put on it...so my grandmother who was living at the time told me to put a piece of fatback on it, and I did, and bandage it like she said, and went to work with it on me, and the next day removed the bandage, and everything had drained and been absorbed by the fatback. Never had another bit of trouble out it...but I sure was glad nobody was hungry for bacon that nite!
