You can take an egg and crack it, and apply the yolk to your boil. The next day the boil should come to a head, if not try it again. Also, you can slice a fresh onion and apply it to the boil and tape it, let it stay there for about 1 day, you will smell like a hamburger, but it works.
I was just wondering on who of you drink Pepsi or even dark pop/soda because my brother use to get boils all the time and sense he changed to drinking clear pop/soda he hardly gets them now.
I've had a seriously painful boil at the top of my butt for about a week.I tried cream after to cream to try and soothe it but nothing had worked..until now. you take a bar of industrial soap (very hard, usually has a name that starts with sun..?) shave a small handful off with a grater. then take an equal part of sugar (i used raw) and add to the soap shavings in a cup. To that add some hot water, and mix vigorously. let stand for about 15 mins and you'll notice it becoming more of a paste. Take a compress and slather it in the mixture, then put compress on the boil and cover with some sort of bandage/gauze. keep switching it up every couple of hours. as far as i know this isn't a cure for the boil, but at least for me it made the pain of it very bearable- i'm actually able to sit down! hope this helps :)
I just had my first boil. It's the most painful thing I think I've ever experienced. Last night I dipped a washcloth in hot water with epsom salt to relieve some of the pain. I did this multiple times for 15 minutes or so. Then, based on recommendations of people on these types of sites, I applied a generous amount of an ointment called Campho Phenique directly to the boil before covering the boil with a large, waterproof bandaid. The boil felt instantly better after applying the Campho Phenique. I left the bandaid on overnight. I woke up this morning, and, sure enough, the boil had drained, just like many people said it would. Thank goodness! Now I am just continuously cleaning the skin around the boil with Dial antibacterial soap and reapplying bandages. But the pain is now minor compared to how it was. I don't know if the boil was just ready to come to a head...but I truly think the Campho Phenique helped tremendously. If you go to a drugstore to find Campho Phenique, look in the cold sore section. And thank you to everyone who recommended this treatment! You were right on!
This is one of the best tips Ive ever got. Use Campho-Phenique Gel only on them. You will be surprised at how fast it rupture. Then go to the doctor and get Bactrim medication. Since Ive done this I havent had not a one. Yay
cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato paste as a compress.The acids from the tomatoes will soothe the pain and help bring the boil to a head.
I suffer with boils on my right thigh right below my right buttocks. A CVS Pharmacy clerk recommended I try
Ichthammol Ointment 20%. It's a black
ointment that smells like some kind of
burnt meat, but it worked to ease the pain of my boil and eventually cause
my boil to drain after one application!
It cost under $5(USD) and is made by
what im about to tell you people is priceless.. your gonna feel like you've struck gold and its so inexpensive you wont believe it.

Go to Wal-Mart and purchase detox-7. This product contains herbs that will purify your blood of toxins that cause boils. Mainly Burdock and Dandelion. Also use and antibactirial soap daily in the areas that are prone to boils.
Teatree oil works on hard stubborn boils that just won't soften or bust. I used it for three weeks once a night. Just rub it on the boil and I guarantee this works.No need to lance it or go to the doctor.
