I've had several boils. The best remedy I have found is campho-phenique. You can by the liquid but I recommend the gel they make for cold sores. Coat the boil liberally before bed and the next morning you should see improvent in the boil, if not drainage. It generally worked for me the next morning, the boil would be draining and I could just go ahead and squeeze the gunk out but it may take 2-4 days. In the mean time the analgesic in the cold sore gel seems to help the pain. Good Luck!

I'm afraid what many of you are describing is not an everyday boil but what I've been dealing with for 22 years (but it took a good dermatologist to diagnose it about 18 years ago). It's a disease called HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA. That's what the professionals call it; I call it 'my nasty little disease.' If you get boil-like lesions in your armpits and/or in the groin area, you may very well be dealing with this malady. In my experience, most regular doctors know little to nothing about it. The only prescription that comes close to helping me is Cipro (yes, the anti-anthrax pill), and even it doesn't work 100% of the time. I am searching this website today because I have a lesion that appeared about 3 MONTHS ago that won't drain - it's about the size of the tip of my thumb, so it's not 'small potatoes.' I'm going to try some of the most-often successful treatments recommended here and will let y'all know if anything worked for me. In the meantime, do an internet search for Hidradenitis suppurativa and see if that's what you've got (pray to God you don't, but you want to know something about H.I.D.E. if you indeed have it). Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but knowledge is power, they say.

I had a boil come up on my left butt cheek. I tried to catch it before it got too bad by covering w/ egg membrane at night, but it didn't work it only got worst. I read that some ppl use ripened banana peels so I put the peel on top of where it was the most painful which was the opening and left it there overnight. I woke up to it throbbing so I ran to the bathroom to remove the peel and as I did the boil had burst and blood/pus was oozing everywhere. LONG story short...the banana peel worked for me.

Every summer for the last 4 years the boils would show up in my armpits. Many large boils, painful and deep! I tried a few high $ products with no relief:( I looked at this website, tried a few of the remedies. The one that 100% works for me is............ WET ONES antibacterial wipes!!! Could not believe that was all I needed. I wipe the effected area 2-3 times a day, that is it. No more boils.

My husband has suffered with a boil for 2 weeks. A friend from Africa told me to take blackeyed peas, crush them up and make a paste. I soaked them in a little bit of warm water and vinegar. We coated the boil and applied a bandage and the next day, tada, it was ready to start draining! Awesome!

Black salve or 'Ichthammol ointment' mixed up with non-coated crushed very fine Aspirin{if your not allergic to to aspirin} use generous amount of ointment - mix in two finely crushed aspirin apply and cover well!
