Ok I have been getting what I thought was pimples or regular old bumps for years now.i usually got them right before or after my cycle until recently I seem to get them once a month in the same spot and realized that they are boils. so a couple of days ago ive gotten a real disturbing one. It was the biggest ive ever had. I couldnt sit and it hurt when I walk and stand. So I came on here to see how to get rid of it. The first day after I showered I used peroxide neosporin and toothpaste and covered it with cotton. Within an hour I started feelin less pain hours later I used a hot compress and put neosporin and toothpaste the next day I just used neosporin and hours later wen I used the bathroom it was pus covered in the cotton I am so happy that I found something to help me get rid of them so I can be pain free
Okay so I get reoccurring Boils on my chin and I never want my boil to come to a head because I think it takes it longer to heal and it looks awful as an open sore. So I always take tumeric and echinacea vitamins while I soak it in Colloidial Silver, Iodine and Tea Tree Oil several times a day. I also melt an Ice Cube on it. It goes away in a week. Good Luck.
A painful, quarter-sized boil appeared slowly over a couple weeks on the side of my chin. After realizing that this was definitely no ordinary pimple, I took a typical square paper napkin and placed about 2T of Epsom Salts in the middle of the napkin, then gently covered the epsom salt with about a T of water to moisten the salt & paper slightly. I wrapped the edges of the napkin around the moistened salt to cover it, which made an easy-to-use epsom salt compress. Then I placed the moist paper compress on my face. I repeated each night for two days until the boil drained itself. Then I kept the area clean & covered during the day & allowed it to be open to the air at night for the following two weeks until all visual evidence of the boil had healed.
I have had boils on and off for probably the last twenty years. While this isn't exactly a remedy, I hope the information is useful as a preventative. I noticed a correlation between the amount of sugar I consume and the occurrence of boils forming on my body. Since the revelation, I decreased the sugar in my diet, which is extremely hard since it's in almost everything. I have to say I haven't gotten a boil since.
Hope this help even just one person.
I sat in a really hot bath and waiting for the boil to get soft and come to a head then I popped it. It was instant relief! I squeezed most of it out them put some cotton on it and a band-aid and let the rest drain out.
i found out drinking coconut water very effective as it is about to begin my boil near my perineum when it stopped and vanished for about 2days.
After reading a lot of y'alls remedies I used what I had available, and it worked! I mixed dry oatmeal,neosporen,vick and baking soda. Put it on my boil covered it and woke up a few hrs later to check it. It had a head! Cleaned it up did it again and it was draining by morning. Thanks my fellow boilers! Hope this helps someone else.
I have suffered from hidradenitis suppurativa (boils in sweat glands) since my teenage years. I am now 57 and still have problems. I have tried every concoction known to man-kind and as far as I am concerned the only way to tackle these painful and sometimes debilitating boils is to use Ichthammol Ointment 20% on a bandage covering the boil. It is a drawing salve that speeds the draining process which brings great relief. You can buy the Ichthammol ointment at most any Pharmacy but you might have to ask for it from the Pharmacist because sometimes it is kept behind the counter. I have also used Boil Ease which is a Benzocaine based salve but the Ichthammol works much better at drawing out the infection. Take it from me, I have tried everything and this is the best thing I have used.
