I had in the last 10 years 4 boils...always on the same spot.
All you need is a raw potato, a pineapple, 1 or 2 lemons and lots of water.
The water you need for warm soaking...try to soak 5 or 6 times a day.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
My secret to clear skin...drink alot of water.
After soaking cut a thin slice of the potato and put it on your abscess/boil/furuncle.
keep replacing with fresh cut slice.
Eat the fruits throughout the day. The pineapple reduces inflammation and you need the vitamins.
For the pain take some ibuprofen until your skin breaks and puss drains...within a day or two.
Keep repeating for another day or two, to be sure it's all drained.
This works for me everytime! Hope it does for you too!

Right now as we speak I have a slice of potato about one inch thick on a boil in the armpit area. I have it secured with a maxi pad. I've had to deal with this several times but this is the first time under my armpit. The majority of times, to be on the safe side, I went to a doctor. Hot compresses are the key to speed up the process. And please, if you are successful with the abscess bursting before you make it to the doctor, always clean the affected area with peroxide.
