Have I found the cure?
Maybe. Read up on Xylitol, a natural sugar found in wood and corn cobs. It's like sugar, the gum (Spry) tastes just like Dentyne gum,,, no after taste either. And they are saying it can clean the mouth so much that it can kill a tooth infection. Something about how it wraps a shield around the bug about to attack your mouth,,, (body).
I read so much about this stuff I decided the very next time I get a boil in my groin I would try it.
Ok I started getting a boil in my groin about two years ago, (diabetic) 5 different times now, and they hurt so bad I could cry sometimes. I feel it, it's a bit painful and by that evening it's growing and getting quite painful... They next day it's burning and like a ripping feeling to walk, can't sit must sleep a lot. Usually about 5 days. The last one a few months back was several inside of one big one. I used every remedy under the sun that time and I ended up with a burn too, one of the remedies must have been too strong and burnt my skin. Turmeric, tea tree oil, you name it. That boil lasted me two weeks of hell.
So, 4 days ago I felt that nasty sore spot coming back. I cried. I remembered my promise to try this Xylitol. In the packets it looks like sugar. I shook some on a facial make up pad, stuffed it where the sun don't shine and waited. By evening the nerves around this sore spot were getting pretty sensitive and the pain was setting in but,,, the boil was smaller then when I first noticed it. I prayed I found the cure for at least when they happen,,, could still get them in future, right,,,
Anyway the next morning, about the time I would typically be feeling a fair sized lump and already find it hard to walk and would not be able to rest off my feet sept to have one leg resting on a stool,,, that mother was gone! No kidding, gone like the wind. Ok I am on day 4 and not one sign of it yet. I didn't have to go through the whole process of 5 to 14 days as I have gone through 5 times in two years, And,,, I have the sweetest smelling Peppy you could ever imagine.
It's not harmful in the mouth so it wouldn't be harmful in the groin or arm pit. If you read up on it and you trust my findings, please give it a try and let us know if this works for all of you... Might have been just my lucky day and it faded on it's own or I really stumbled on something. I hope for gods sakes it works for me again and I really hope it helps someone else. I know the pain and tears a boil brings, specially when it's not the first one and you know what in the days ahead.
Now this was a new boil about to get mad,,, so I don't know how well it would work on one already on the wild side,,, worth a try.
As for me, I am gonna mop little miss Peppy with a little sweetener after every shower,,, what a way to have a fun date huh, hahaha.
Anyway, here is praying we can end this madness. Thanks for reading.
