I got a boil in my groin, which was extremely painful and made walking, sitting and moving very difficult. On the second day, after not being able to get a doctors appointment, and the pain worsening, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I made a paste using a small onion, 2 or 3 garlic cloves, vinegar (I think cider vinegar would be better but I only had malt, so used that!), and dissolved Epsom salts in a bit of hot water. I blitzed it all in the food processor (you could just very finely chop until mush) - I then applied to the boil and kept it on for a couple of hours, occasionally reapplying more paste if needed. I also had a couple of hot Epsom salt baths. On the evening, the boil came to a head and drained - what relief! I am currently nursing the remaining wound, which is proving to be equally tricky, however much less painful.

I hope this remedy can help someone else get some relief. If anyone has any advise about after-boil care, please let me know. Thanks x
