I got a boil on my head and didn't have a clue what to do....I went ahead and tried using the Ichthammol that is widely talked about on the internet even though I was skeptical.

I bought it from Wal-Greens...they keep it behind the counter at the pharmacy, but you do not need a prescription. Just ask for it and they will grab you a tube....I belive it's made by 'Goldline'.

I applied the blank ichthammol and was surprised at how quickly it work.

I applied the ichthammol and placed a band-aid tightly over it. You don't want the ichthammol getting on your clothes or pillows,etc. It will leave a stain almost like motor oil.

Within a day, the boil was getting better. I didn't know what it ws or how to treat it, so it got pretty bad. But soon it just kind of 'popped'....not like a 'pop', but it broke open slowly.

The band-aid absorbed the substances left over....

When this happens make sure you wash the area....I used anti-bacterial soap....actually it was dish soap, but it was anti-bacterial.

You don't want the stuff in the boil spreading.

I also tried using this tumeric stuff. It's a spice or herb you can buy at the grocery and used a lot in Indian food.

It smells and tastes bad, but it's supposed to help, some people even suggest making a paste of it with water and putting it on the boil.

I would just stick to ichthammol.

Here's the weird thing....

I also had a subaceous cyst on my head that had previously been removed by a doctor twive but just kept growing back in the same exact spot.

This cyst was toward the back of my head, and the boil was toward the front on the same side.

As the boil went down, the cyst began to flare up and it felt like I had another boil growing 'on top' of the cyst. I can't be 100% sure of this, but the cyst always grew very slowly, and now it was growing rapidly and was very painful, just like the boil was.

I used the ichthammol on the cyst thinking it would get rid of the boil and I'd still have the cyst.....

Nope...the ichthammol worked so well it eliminated the boil and the subaceous cyst!

I was pumped as the cyst was getting big and I didn't have health insurance to get it removed this time, even though the first 2 times I did.

It's been about 8 months now and the cyst has not grown back. It's nice not having that bump on my head....it was never really painful, but it was annoying when I would cut my hair short and if I happened to bump it accidentally...it would hurt.

I've continued to use the ichthammol every time I get anything that even resembles a boil.

I seem to get them on my head, I guess it is from wearing hats all the time....I also got one on my waist area where my waistband is on my pants....a little ichthammol and a band-aid for a day or two and it was gone.

I'm pretty sure some of the time I've used the ichthammol on my head has just been on big zits....even though they are nowhere near as painful as the boils or annoying as the cysts, they are still a nuisance at times and the ichthammol clears them up quickly, so it may be able to help some with acne issues.

If you are dealing with boils or even subaceous cysts, would say give the ichthammol a try. Just apply it and put a tight bandaid on it. Wash the area after you take the band-aid off, and keep it clean. use anti-bacterial soap of some kind.

The stuff costs no more than $5 for a tube that will last you awhile. The stuff is thick and a little dab can go a long way.

The name brand I use is GoldLine, I get it at Wal-greens.

THANK YOU!!! You have given me so much information, as I to suffer from all the symptoms you had with the boil/lump on your head. I was afraid and though I may have some type of serious illness and when you mentioned that you had a subaceous cyst, finally I know what I to have. I will try your suggestions and want you to know that I really appreciate your informing those of us, whom also do not have insurance or are apprehensive to seek medical advise FIRST. I know you are not a medical person, but really know that I will value and try your suggestion. God Bless You!
