6 Comments for the Abscesses and Boils Home Remedy

Submitted by Lars

The first time I suffered perianal abscesses was in my early 40s and only a month after having surgery to remove my hemorrhoids! I went to the emergency room to diagnose and treat these extremely painful anal boils, something much more painful than the hemoroids! To treat them, I went to the emergency room and the surgeon lanced them without anesthesia and wow did that HURT!

After a pretty painful month dealing with both issues, I haven't had anal 'issues' till just a few weeks ago.

Suddenly I started feeling the 'boils' develop just under my sphincter. Even after 20+ years, I knew exactly what would follow ... something I did not want to deal with again by going to the emergency room for surgical lancing of the abscesses.

Ergo, I searched the Web for a homeopathic solution, including this website. So I thought it only appropriate to share the resulting methods used to deal with very painful experience.

To say the least it was VERY effective, providing drainage and relief after only one treatment before going to bed. I didn't even require a sitz bath before :-) So without further ado, here's the treatment method that's getting me GREAT results.

1st, and most important, make your poultice.
Poultice Ingredients:
* 2 tsp turmeric
* 2 tsp baking soda
* 2 tsp coconut oil
* 1/4 tsp or 15 drops of tea tree oil

1. Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a small bowl, preferably glass, to a smooth paste consistency.

Next, start treating the abscesses.

Treatment Method:
1. Take warm shallow bath or sitz bath with epsom salt for 20-30 minutes. Re-filling with warm water as necessary.
2. When done with bath, pat and dry the area with a towel or cotton cloth. Never allow infected area to stay wet.
3. With a q-tip or other type of swab, apply poultice directly on abscess, spreading it over the entire area.
4. Cover or stuff gauze into area so it won't easy fall out.
5. Use powder or cotton in your inner wear to keep area dry.
Ideally, do this three times a day with the last before going to bed. If in the morning, the abscess hasn't begun to drain, repeat daily till it does.
Note: In my case I started before going to bed, not even taking a bath and the next morning the abscesses had already begun to drain :-) However, I did have to change my bed sheets ;-)

To help promote proper healing I'm finding what you do after the abscess begins to drain is very important.

After care treatment:
* After drainage begins, as necessary, gently wipe affected area with soft cotton cloth soaked in hot water and rubbed with hypoallergenic soap. The last thing you want now is a cleansing liquid or bar soap that causes irritation to your skin!
* Hot compresses can also help the healing process by enhancing blood circulation and diluting the infective toxins.
* As with the treatment, never allow infected area to stay wet.
* Daily nutrients and drinking lots of water and fluids can also help dilute the toxins that still remain while mitigating recurrences down the road. A daily multi-vitamin is a good place to start.
Here's a great PDF on after care, regardless of whether you decide on surgery or home remedy: www.carolina-surgical.com/mydocuments/postop_incision_and_drainage_abscess.pdf

Ongoing Preventative Management
* Take plenty of water and fruit juices to avoid constipation
* Follow hygienic measures in your ongoing cleansing and caring for the area.
* Get in the habit of passing stool twice a day to avoid strain to rectum and anus
* Don’t strain while defecating. It is better to have semisolid stool for easy defecation
* Sitz bath – After passing stool, take a warm sitz bath with salted water for 10 minutes. In a pinch you can use a hot rinsed soft cotton cloth rubbed with hypoallergenic soap to keep the area hygienically clean.
* • Avoid nylon underwear and use cotton ones
* If you do get another attack treat abscess immediately. Don't wait!!

I hoped the above helps those in need of relief and thanks to everyone here who've shared their challenges and solutions :-)

Lars, thank you so much for sharing. I have had to have a drain put into a VERY painful abscess and now completing the drainage and healing. Q: Can you put the mixture you suggest on an open wound to help drain the last bit of the abscess?

Will this actually work?

I just wanted to write and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this post. I've suffered with extremely painful abscesses for 14 years. I've had countless surgeries, trips to A&E, and completely terrible days. I've dreaded having to go to have them lanced, the side effects from the endless antibiotics, the pain when you leave them, the scars they leave behind - all of it. At 28 years old, my wonderful mum found your remedy this last weekend after I developed my first abscess in a year (almost to the day - the last one was a hospital job and the scar isn't properly right yet). We tried it, and in 3 treatments over 24 hours my abscess burst on its own. Whilst obviously painful, it saved me from hospital - and the inevitable scar, and it was nowhere near as painful as what happens when you seek medical advice. I'm sat here 48 hours later and I can barely feel a thing. This has never happened before and I honestly can't thank you enough. Nor can I urge other sufferers enough to try it. I'd got to the point where I'd try anything, but I never believed something like this would work. It 100\% did. You've literally changed my life and I can't thank you enough.
