Take a slice of peeled potato(about 1 in. thick) and place it over the abcess or boil and secure it there with tape. Leave it on there for a couple hours and it will pull the poison out. You can see the poisons on the potato. It works, I swear.

This absolutely does not work, just makes it uncomfortable for the couple of hours that you have it on there.

I have been plagued for years with Cyst/boils and finally found a natural supplement that controls them 99% of the time. However, occasionally I tried using the potato with no response. This absolutely did not work for me!

ok i know that this one sounds crazy but i tried it and it does work. i will admitt walking around with a slice of potato taped to my butt didnt feel good but it worked.

this seemed to work on a teen I saw with what looked to be a spider bite- 3' dark red spot on calf with 2 fang-marks in the center, seeping clear fluid. the 2 fang-marks were open so maybe that is necessary for the potato to draw out the poison but not sure. The red area was 3' diameter and the next day the red area was not any larger and the color had changed to very faint. the fang marks were still draining and appeared to have more puss trying to come out.

I have had one on my inner thigh closer down to my butt and its been extremly painful. I couldnt walk or do anything for myself. Last night I read this post and was willing to do anything. It worked!!!! I left it on overnight and when I woke up, it was draining. Not all of it drained out and I dont want to squeeze it as Ive heard that can make it worse, so I put another potato on it, maybe it finish pulling the rest out.
