Boils Home Remedy Comments

4 Comments for the Boils Home Remedy


I have suffered from boils in cluster on my armpits for four years. I get them about once every two months. I get into a hot, hot shower and spray the water as hot as it can go directly on it for about 5 minutes. Then I rinse it with white vinegar, wash it with hibiclens, and rinse with vinegar again. I cake baking soda on it and let it stay there for about five minutes. Then i put a mixture of baking soda and vinegar on a washcloth and rub it for a couple more minutes. When I get out of the shower, it oozes pus and blood like you wouldn't believe. It is painless and only takes about 15 minutes. Well, relatively painless, touching any boil hurts. I definitely recommend washing with hibiclens (you can get it at any drug store), vinegar and baking soda! Make sure to wash with a disinfecting soap such as hibiclens while treating the boil and for a while after the boil is gone, because the boil is caused by a bacteria, and will only come back if the bacteria is still present.
