1 Comment for the Boils Home Remedy


When you feel a boil starting dip a very small piece of cotton (torn from a cotton ball) into tea tree oil. Not all tea tree oil is the same, I like Desert Essence. I then get a bandaid and cover the newby boil with the cotton dipped oil. This method works best if you can leave the bandaid on the boil for several hours or overnight. It reduces the inflammation considerably and usually stops the boil and goes away.

I have used ichthammol ointment (black salve). That seems to be best for when the boil is past its infancy and will have to come to a head. I applied it several times to this nasty boil on my face cheek several times. It just kept weeping so I had to constantly wipe with a tissue. If the boil had not been on my face I think the best is to app,y a generous amount then cover with a bandaid.

I wash my face with hibicleanse too. I have seen a homeopathic doctor who suggested I undergo UV light therapy. Basically they remove 45cc's of my blood then pass it through a UV light to help oxygenate the blood. I have had 3 out of the 4 recommended treatments but still boils continue to erupt on my face. So I don't think that is the best remedy. I also tried a Banyan blood cleanse in the spring this year with no luck on ridding these boils.

I am continuing to seek alternative therapies because I really want these boils to stop.

Homeopathic medicine is a pseudoscience. UV therapy for oxygenation of blood? Seriously? That doesn't even make sense. Please don't waste your time and money on bulls*it like that lol I'm a good old fashioned Western Medicine professional (infectious disease specialist) and these things are caused by the normal bacterial flora of your skin, most often Staph and Strep. If no symptoms indicative of infection exist, i.e. Fever, chills, etc, soak in hot water and magnesium sulfate or any other magnesium salt of your liking, and use ascetic technique. If an infection exists, get a script of antibiotics (bactrim, doxycycline, clindamycin) as soon as possible. You don't want to risk development of an MRSA infection.
