For boils & abscesses, the Ichthammol ointment is also called Draw Out Salve. Called 6 major chain pharmacies that were clueless on what this was. Finally figured it out myself. Found it at Rite Aid for $8.99.

Hope this saves someone going through the frustration.

Do NOT use the draw out salve if you are allergic to sulfa.

I tried the draw out salve one time. All it did was make the area very raw and caused a lot more pain than I was already in! It never drained at all. I may have been allergic to some of the ingredients. I guess every case is different but I will never use that stuff again!!!
