Take a slice of peeled potato(about 1 in. thick) and place it over the abcess or boil and secure it there with tape. Leave it on there for a couple hours and it will pull the poison out. You can see the poisons on the potato. It works, I swear.

Hi I've a big abcsess on my boob I'm on my 2nd lot of antibiotics but the abcsess still showing no signs of bursting so I'm now sat ere with a slice of potato in my bra, yes it sounds funny but the pains not so bad now and fingers crossed it will soon burst. Il keep you all posted on the results.


Hi everyone I've now had my slice of potato on my abcsess for a good few hrs and I have to say that the pain as eased loads and the lump as gone soft, it's was rock hard. Il change it before bed and report bk if it burst during the night.


I'd like to let u all know that since the last time I posted my comment I've since had a look at my abcsess and I have to say that the potato really does work,it was so big red and sore today and as been for a wk, I've been changing the potato every few hrs and I've not had much pain since I starting using it and it's got lots smaller in size, I've not been this excited in ages.


The potato worked got up this morning and my abcsess had finally burst


I just put the potato on it and am waiting to see what happens. It does not hurt but I do not want to go to the hospital. I am an IV user for years and do not want them know as I am often in the hospital for diabtes and COPD so I have to be careful what I do there. I am waiting to see what happens. I have my Pain Management appt on Monday so I hope this works.


Tried the potato earlier for a boil on my buttcheek. I definitely did not think it would work, but just after about an hour or so I could tell it was shrinking in size, but after about 3 hours still hadn't drained. So I put neosporin on a gauze pad and covered it and went about my day. Then later on had gotten a hot shower, and I noticed after getting out that it was draining. So apparently the potato does work(or i just found a miracle potato)at least to bring the goop to the surface! I was shocked!


Trying the potato now!!!!! Felt a little relief


Does it really work
