3 Comments for the Boils Home Remedy


I am a 33 yr old woman that has been fighting boils since I was in my early 20's! I have 21month old daughter who has started getting them! And we both have had the ones with MRSA recently. Feeling very aggravated because I am a clean freak. I never imagined passing this to my daughter and I don't want her to suffer with these awful scars and all the other crap that come with boils! So, after my mother and I researching and asking and praying!
I had been trying just plain Tea Tree oil from the grocery store on a new boil on my daughters thigh. She won't let me do the warm compresses on her leg so I do the oil after a good warm bath, but first i clean it with alcohol. Then I put the tea tree oil on a cotton pad (soak the pad in the middle) then place the pad on her leg and put hospital tape over it. Once a day we repeat this after a bath. It has popped on it's own and looks so much better. I have continued to do this and it is almost gone!

Now for prevention! I have used myself as the tester for different stuff but what is working for me now you ask? Well, I wash with regular soap as soon as i get into the shower, I rinse. Then, I wash my hair, shave, and whatever. Before I get out of the tub I scrub down with Dial antibacterial body wash! Last, I rinse again and dry off.. I only use lotion on my body that doesn't get the boils. I haven't had a boil since I have been doing all of this. It's been over 3 months! I was getting like one or more a month! I am going to start doing the same with my daughter! I hope it works for her too!

Just remember:
*Warm compresses
*Make sure you stay sanitary with all of this!
*This stuff spreads like none other!
*Tea Tree oil soaked on cotton or gauze..
*keep it covered.
*Do not try to squeeze it at all!!
I squeezed one and ended up in the hospital for a weak! U
*use alcohol to clean the area and make sure to wash your hands every time u might even get close to touching it!
Also, it is very important to keep a close eye on the redness and swelling!
*use a permanent marker and mark the redness and see if it grows beyond where you marked it and if it does grow in size. GO TO YOUR DOCTOR OR THE E.R. fast! For me it's better to just go to the e.r. because some doctors won't lance it in their office!!

I have also found that too much sugar in your diet will make these boils worse! So, sugar is being altogether watched. My daughter hardley ever gets anything sugary! So, we are praying that cutting sugar even more will help too!

Rub Bactria ban ointment you get from the doc around her nostrils and yours everyday. You can get boils from breathing in the air and it might be in your blood stream. A nurse told my husband that.
