Vitamin A

[YEA]  11/29/2009: Frances A from Jacksonville, Florida: "Recurring boils and similar large, painful pimples

After age 21 I had terrible huge pimples. When my pharmacist told me that some derms prescribed Vitamin A, I started on it immediately.. It was like a miracle, a moderate miracle. The huge deep pimples stopped and my skin improved in other ways.

I used to take 50,000 units a day but now I would limit myself to 25,000 units per day. Just be patient and don't stop the treatment."

[YEA]  03/16/2007: Julian from Bathurst , NSW Australia: "A common factor for most of the boil sufferers is the time of year, late winter when Vit D reserves are at their lowest. Vit D is a necessary part of the immune system. The Vit D Council (Google it) gives free information on doses and some amazing facts on its effectiveness for many ailments. I have used Colorless Iodine for unbroken skin pimples or puncture wounds for years and never get infections, Betadine for scrapes and scratches.Castor oil for sun blemishes, age spots and sun cancers. I work outside, get plenty of those. Used to get boils before I found Colorless Iodine, its getting hard to find (not much profit?) but some chemists will make it up."

[YEA]  09/06/2007: Sage from DETROIT, Michigan: "re: Turmeric works but not with a lot of Sugar consumption. Thanks to this site,' Turmeric has helped alleviate my boil problems in the past. However after a recurrence last month, I was reminded that sugar does inhibit the immune system. I ate some cotton candy (Straight spun sugar), and four boils popped up in the groin area two days later. I have already cut out pop/soda drinks which helps. Again I was reminded that plenty of water, fresh fruits, and veggies help keep the boils away. I know now that I am asking for problems when I consume too much sugar (also candy) and baked sweets. I hope that this helps others and I am very thankful for this site."

I mixed a tsp of Black Seed Oil with 1/2 cup of plain unsweetened yogurt, 1 tsp of Turmeric, and 1 crushed clove of garlic. I also drink Burdock/Goldenseal/Echinacea Teas to help boost my immune system."

[YEA]  08/31/2007: johndoe from Fairfield, Ia: "I have had boils appear months apart and very often at times. I use Watkins salve and they go away or come to a head in a day or so. Some times over night. Apply Watkins salve to the boil and also apply some to a band-aid and cover boil with band-aid. Works every time for me."

[NAY]  02/05/2011: Heather from Clarksburg, West Virginia replies: "I have been applying Watkins salve, washing the area and doing the best to treat it but it's not healing at all. It hurts a lot! Sometimes pus will drain, but it's not healing. I am not diabetic. I am not ill otherwise. Well no, I have a kidney infection which I am taking cipro for. But this is starting to worry me. The thought of going to the E. R. over this just makes me feel silly."

[YEA]  06/03/2008: Sharon from Valdosta, Georgia: "Boil remedy: A powder that contains Zinc (Ammens) applied several times a day seems to work best for me."

04/10/2011: Nikki from Olivehurst, Ca, United States replies: "So once your infections have a head, they drain on their own & heal? Every time I've had a mrsa boil I always have to squeeze it to get the stuff out & it just keeps on growing and making a huge hole in my skin. I always end up caving & going to the doctor. I'm afraid its going to spread & kill me. :("
