I had a boil for about a week that had came to the size of a golf ball. I was in so much pain I couldn't walk. On Thursday I put mixed a turmin capsulse, milk and tea tree oil.I checked maybe 4 hours later nothing happened. Very frustrated I mixed a later content of tumin and tea tree oil, cleaned the site with dial soap and peroixide, made a this paste and applied it to the boil with tissues and bandaids(i didn't have any dressings) and Taped it up reall good and tight. Maybe less than 10 hours later it ruptured slightly. I showed and made applied the paste again but this time I included neospirin and the peroxide with 2 drops of tea tree oil, When I woke up which was abt 8 hrs later is was oozing everywhere. I still feel uncofortable because Im still kinda walking funny but thank God the worst is over. Oh and I had some bactrim from a previous incident and I have been taking that to fight the bacteria to prevent it from spreading. Tumin is the best even though I spent around 30 dollars or so, it was still worth it. Make sure you keep it clean and package it extra so there won't be any drainage. Good luck you guys. This my 3rd and my first 2 was lanced which was the worst experience ever!
I have been getting boils for years I Always get them in the groin (panty line area) I have had one lanced it was a painful experience I don't want to scare anyone but when a boil is infected and you go to the doctors to get it lanced being that its filled with puss numbing meds can not going through your blood stream fast so u will feel some pain while getting it lanced and drained . So needles to say I'm really trying to avoid going to the hospital ..in the past I have tried boil ease yea definitely not for me it burned it and only made it worst I have done peroxide and hot compress and its worked but for the last couple of days no relief yet. The pain is getting worst after reading this page I think I going to try the Epsom salt in a hot bath pray for me guys this one wants to be hard headed
Fyl never try to pop them or put a pin to it
I had a HUGE boil that literally wrapper around my butt which was painful and red. After returning from a trip I started to use Epsom Salt with hot water cloths and Vicks to draw out the boil. This worked decently, but the real difference was made when i started using Ichthammol salve which you can buy at any pharmacy. You continue using Epsom Salt and Vicks with heating pads or hot cloths, but at night you gob on Itchammol on the boil and cover it with gauze. Several days and you will feel the boil coming to a head and draining. I did apply a small amount of pressure which pushed out a ton of yellowish pus and blood. It takes a long time for larger boils so be patient and it may come back after you think it's gone, but just keep doing the same thing. I probably went from 2 cups of fluid in the boil to nothing. I wish I just did this earlier
i get boils quite often. i ise castor oil to bring them to a head and it will burst w/o me having to prick it. castor oil doesnt burn or smell.
Ok so I had the WORST boil on my 'buttcrack' it was actually right above it.....and I have NO INSURANCE so this is what I did:
**Got icthammol ointment- I put this on at night with a bandaid **FOUND at CVS for around $6
**Then I got campho-phenique and put that on during the day I USED the one for cold sores u can find it almost anywhere
** I took 2 hot baths a day with epsom salt
**before each application of both ointments I cleaned the boil with hydrogen peroxide
**if I had work or had 2 run errands I didn't put any ointment on but I did put a bandaid on to prevent my clothes rubbing against the boil
NOW my boil was huge and painful i could barely sit, drive or walk and at first had no head but the icthammol ointment brought it 2 a 'head' or at least made it look like a huge zit overnight this did take about 3 days to finally 'pop'
**with all the ointments including neosporin, icthammol and campho-phenique along with band aids and epsom salt it cost about $20 bucks which is a lot cheaper then a doctor bill
**FUTURE I would say the campho-phenique really brought the boil to 'pop' but the icthammol made the pain go away almost InSTANTLY!!
And remember to keep the area super clean!!
So I woke up one morning with a bump in my butt crack I thought it was a pimple or ingrown hair an kept squeezing it and of course it got worse an I realized its a boil I read about 6 pages of these remedies an I didn't have the right supplies so I compromised and crushed up half an 800mg ibuprofen an triple antibiotic ointment made a thick moist paste and applied it it burned for the first 5-10mins then 45mins later I took the tissue I put on after the ointment and seen that it had started to drain i Jus cleaned it an reapplied and the pain is no where near as bad as it was an hour ago...
I was living in an area where you couldn't drink the tap water. The water I could get, tasted like pond water, so I stuck to beer, within 2 months I had a massive boil on my chest on my sternum.
I left it until it had a nice big yellow head then I bought a miniature whiskey bottle drank the contents then placed it in a pot on the stove - filled the pot until the bottle almost wanted to float removed the bottle boiled the water turned off the heat and then picked up the bottle and placed it in the boiling water while holding the opening with my fingers to monitor the temperature when it was as hot as I could handle I used a cloth on the back hot end and quickly placed it over the yellow head which I had covered with Vaseline (to help with the seal). As soon as the air inside the little glass bottle cooled it sucked on with a massive vacuum, I then swapped the dry cloth for a cold wet one to help cool the bottle down.
Its an old South African remedy and it works really well - the bottle filled up to about 10% of its volume . I repeated it again immediately (after giving the bottle a good rinse-yuck). The boil was gone 2 days later.
When you floss and brush your teeth at night get in the habit of rinsing your mouth and then drinking as much water as you can. If you can do it drink more on an empty stomach when you wake up as well- this water treatment comes from Japan and they claim it even cures cancer.
Water helps your kidneys purify your blood, dirty blood causes boils and lots of other bad things too, so make sure you drink your daily dose of rocket fuel (hydrogen and oxygen) H2O
I have suffered from boils for years. Nothing really helped. But now I have found the solution! No creams, virtually no pain, and it seems to work every time.
I found this quite by accident. My sister has a tanning salon, and has this huge level 3 stand up job. Well, I had a nasty boil on my hip. on a whim, I exposed this to the light while I was being fried (I am not a regular tanning customer). Well wouldn't you know it in a couple of days it was gone! and it was very well established and in an area where it would be rubbed constantly from any movement I made.
Well the past summer I was working on am air conditioning system on a car. I went to Advance auto parts and bought a leak detection kit. It came with some yellow safety glasses and this UV flashlight. Looks just like a pen light, but it has a UV LED in it.
Wouldn't you know it! when I get a boil I hold this light right against my skin. It's not even enough to tan the area it exposes, but it kills the staph infection under the skin! I do two treatments. The first one doesn't seem to be working after one day. So I hold it on there for maybe five to ten minutes the second day. In a week it is healing nicely. In two weeks it is gone with no further treatments!
I am so relieved that I found this. You have no idea. I just had to share this with some of you who are plagued with this as well.
This site will not allow me to add a link. So search for:
Interdynamics UV Leak Detection kit.
You will guard this thing with your life I promise!
I have had no adverse reaction to this what-so-ever. I don't think its any worse than very bright sunlight. But do not look into this light. Because it would damage your eyes. And keep this thing out of reach of children. Good luck!
This is one thing I can say works for me 100% of the time.
HELP! I have 4 painful boils on the inside of my leg.3 have ruptured and are draining but they are still painful. So painful that it's very difficult to walk.
