A painful, quarter-sized boil appeared slowly over a couple weeks on the side of my chin. After realizing that this was definitely no ordinary pimple, I took a typical square paper napkin and placed about 2T of Epsom Salts in the middle of the napkin, then gently covered the epsom salt with about a T of water to moisten the salt & paper slightly. I wrapped the edges of the napkin around the moistened salt to cover it, which made an easy-to-use epsom salt compress. Then I placed the moist paper compress on my face. I repeated each night for two days until the boil drained itself. Then I kept the area clean & covered during the day & allowed it to be open to the air at night for the following two weeks until all visual evidence of the boil had healed.
