[YEA] 01/24/2013: Jacob from Upper Marlboro, Md: "I have experienced boils for years and I realized for me... The reason I get boils is because of the toxicity levels in my blood, due to smoking and/or drinking. Tumeric is the best solution for boils but it doesn't cure it, if your immune..."

[YEA] 12/27/2006: Keith from Montgomery, AL: "I had read about this and it works. I had a boil in my groin area that was painful and hard. I applied some campho phenique to the bandage part of a large Band-Aid and slept with it applied to the boil all night. You might want to apply sterile gauze over this due to drainage. The next morning pus had began to flow freely. Gentle squeezes from the base of boil will cause more to be released. Continue this treatment until the boil gets small or is gone. I used Tylenol for the pain I was experiencing. Sometimes low iron deficiencies cause boils so I will begin eating a handful of raisins a day which is suppose to prevent them."Replies
08/12/2012: Wanda from Jackson, Mo replies: "Campho worked for me.... Did the job in less than 6 hours!"
[YEA] 05/03/2013: Hef from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "My nephew has a boil/acne mix on top of his nose with blood and pus coming from it for a month and was not getting better. When I visited him, I recommended applying castor oil dipped cotton gauze and then putting on band aid on top of it overnight daily.
On my next visit in a week his problem was healed completely. He was a very happy kid."
[YEA] 03/24/2006: Sandy from Vancouver: "A long time ago, I had a painful sore in the back crease of my thigh that I couldn't identify, and my grandmother said it was a boil from sitting on wet cement with bare skin. She told me to put some castor oil on a cotton ball and cover it, and leave it alone. I did, and it was gone in 2 days! I've since had one more, used the same remedy with the same result. I think lancing them simply opens you up to more infection but it might be necessary if it is black or looks like blood poisoning and you are really ill for no other reason. I truly hope this works for others."
[YEA] 03/27/2007: Matt from Springfield, USA: "Hello, I have almost a cure for a Pilonidal cyst. The reason I say almost is it will come back in usually about 10 months to a year, and then you will need to repeat the steps again. I came across it from another person who has suffered from this health problem and has been through many surgeries with no help. I myself have been through one surgery in which the cyst came back a year later. The cure is to put cayenne pepper mixed with water in the sinus opening of the cyst for 3-4 days straight using an eye dropper with a narrow end. The solution should be 1 heaping teaspoon of pepper in a cup of water used over the 3-4 day period. This does sting quite a bit for the first minute or two after the pepper is injected but subsides afterwards. Note: you will probably need someone to do it for you to really get the solution in the sinus. I've read this works because the sting of the pepper brings a rush of white blood cells to the area, not sure if that is true or not, but it worked for me. Of course check with your doctor before doing anything. I'd also be interested if anyone else has found other ways to deal with this issue."Replies
09/30/2011: Dan from Chicago, Il replies: "I'm assuming this is about the cyst you get in your nose and not on your tailbone?"
12/19/2011: Socher from Mesa, Arizona, Usa replies: "The 'sinus' mentioned here is not referring to the nasal cavity sinus but rather to a part of the structure of a pilonidal cysts (also known as a) sinus."
Cell Salt Silica
[YEA] 05/22/2009: Kirsten from Santa Fe, NM: "My family has been using the homeopathic cell salt silica to stop boils in their tracks. It is #12 of Dr. Schuessler's tissue remedies and should be available at most natural grocers which sell homeopathics. It is indicated in abcesses,boils,and any other skin conditions with thick,yellow discharges. It also helps to deacidify the body. As with any homeopathic you should increase the frequency of the dosage to about every 15 minutes in an acute situation and take it less frequently in maintenance doses. There is no way to overdose on homeopathics and taking silica should not interfere with any remedy you are currently using. Silica usually comes in lactose tablet form and about 4 tablets under the tongue or in some water is the dosage. If this remedy works for you, you can keep it going forever by following these simple steps (by the way this works for all homeopathics and Bach flower remedies). Take 4 of the lactose tablets and put them into a new glass bottle with a dropper. Add any liquor or hard alcohol to the bottle, filling it 3/4 of the way to the top. Allow the tablets to dissolve for a few minutes. Succuss the bottle 100 times, by tapping the bottle on the palm of your hand. Since homeopathics are vibrationally based you have simply transferred the vibration to the liquid. This process can be repeated again when your bottle gets low. 4 to 6 drops can be taken as a dose."
[YEA] 03/11/2009: Sudha from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India: "I get boils in the inner thigh and on my bum regularly, especially during my period. I discovered that by application of coconut oil, once every 1/2 hour or one hour, the boils subsided or broke and disappeared within two days. However, this seems to work only for boils below the navel. I have boils on my chest which don't respond to this. Hope this works for all of you."
Coconut Oil, Turmeric Paste
[YEA] 02/04/2010: Ian from Capistrano Beach, Ca: "I've been using a paste made from turmeric powder and coconut oil to deplete acne boils and the scars left from it. I used pure virgin coconut oil alone on the boils and they depleted in about 5 days. when I mix the paste and use that as a facial mask before sleep it only takes about three days to completely clear my face. I've been studying and working with theses to substances for 3 weeks and am already very impressed with the results on my self and 5 other willing subjects."Replies
03/09/2012: Buddhachica from Atlanta, Ga replies: "I am wondering if there is a difference between using fresh tumeric as opposed to the powder?"
03/13/2012: Lee from Cranebrook, Nsw Sydney Australia replies: "Hi there! My ex husband used to have a lot of trouble with boils he was told to eat mackerel fish as the oil in the fish would help. To my amazement it did and as my son had a period of boils also I purchased the Mackerel Fish and the boils went and never came back. Good Luck"
Colloidal Gold, Bentonite Clay
[YEA] 03/16/2007: Alwyn from Laytonville, CA: "Hi, got here accidently, got fascinated. I had some boils which started out like a spider bite. I attacked it with hot water lavender poultice (very BRIEF, just to open the pores), and then a bentonite clay mix, combined with colloidal silver. This usually will take down any infection. However, it wasn't until I poured colloidal gold solution over the leg, inaddition to the bentonite, that it got cured. For open, supporating sores, etc, colloidal silver combined with zinc is quite effective. Also, to help cure the heavy metal toxicity which you said contributes, mix 1 tablespoonful high grade bentonite (or pascalite) clay in one glass of water. Drink this every other day for about eight weeks. This is an amazing remedy."
[YEA] 10/15/2011: Enchanting123 from Los Lunas, Nm: "First I have to say I love earthclinic website. So many natural cures to look up.
My husband had another boil on his behind. After one week he finally told me, he had put on rubbing alcohol. I immediately looked at the website to see what can be done. I had colloidal siver and I put it on a little cotton cloth and covered it with a bandage. Overnight it drew out the head and looked a lot better, redness and a lot of the swelling was gone. Put on some more and covered it. Thank you earthclinic and all the wonderful people who share their natural remedies."
[YEA] 06/11/2008: Susan from Carmichael, California: "I started having boil in November of 2007. I was going to the emergence room and having them lace them. Then in January of this year I was took I had MRSA and then a month later my 20 year old daughter found out she had it.She had a boil in the front between her legs and and on the sids of her finger nails. We both have trouble with bandaid. They leave marks on the skin, but not on the bottom. In March I went to a Health Food Store to buy something I read about and a clerk told me about his staph he had and what he used. I bought hight potent Colloidal Silver (500ppm) and MSM lotion. He told me to take a MSM lotion in my hand and a drop of Colloidal Silver, mix it together and rub it on my boil. It worked on my side boil, but not on my bottom because anything I put on my bottom will be saoked up and the boil gets bigger. I put a drop of the Colloidal silver on my finger and rub it in and it works. I only use it when the boil is small. I even take 3 drops by mouth 2-3 times a day all the time and my boils are geting smaller.
I was told by a doctor not to soak in a hot bath because you can reinfect the boil and that is true. I stoped going that and my boils don't get as big. I even found out by using a hot compress it does the same thing(boil gets bigger) Now I jut use Colloidal Silver, cover it and forget about it and it goes away faster."
[YEA] 10/12/2011: Jane from Portland, Or, Usa replies: "I got an itchy, raised, red area on my inner leg, very close to Labia. I have some Colloidal Silver and knowing it smothers Viruses I sprayed it. Through the night I noticed that the swelling was down but there were 5 or so elongated raised bumps. I had NEVER had that happen and it made me interested in what it was. I kept spraying silver and one by one they broke and slightly oozed but I didn't touch it. I keep spraying and I am seeing each one scab over and shrink. 30 years ago I developed Staph in my ceasarian section and was quarantined, I will bet there is left over staph in my body. In the past I would develop the raised itchy near my "area" but it would never come to anything. Just go away, but was quite itchy. The Silver brought out the bugger. I am amazed that #1, I could be harboring Staph in my system from that time period and #2 Colloidal silver is clearing it externally, very quickly. It has been 4 days. I am going to go great guns with Colloidal silver internally. Wow maybe I won't be such a sickly little thing anymore...... Hope springs eternal!"
[YEA] 02/04/2008: GABI from TORONTO, CANADA: "Hi. I didn't try turmeric when I was in boils. I use Colloidal Silver Water. Apply a drop or two on top of boil (acne too!). After 1-2 hr it stops hurting, stops "growing". Up to 3 days it subsides to red spot. You can use small hair spry bottle (with very fine mist like spry). If you have acne or boils more then one and you expect more to show up spray it on your skin just once and let it dry. Nothing will break out! I suffered for almost 30 years from something what doctor called "diaper rush" (!). The pic of my "diaper rush" was always during summer months. After using once single spray of Colloidal Silver Water I am free of this skin condition. I will get 1 tiny pimple time to time but who hasn't have it during hot summer days?"Replies
09/07/2010: N from Boston, Ma replies: "I am using collodial silver directly on boil/pilonidial cyst that is on my rear in the fold of the cheeks, , , just started this... The boil is oozing and I am hoping that the silver will clear it up?"
[YEA] 03/16/2007: Roger from Rushford, MN: "colloidial silver cured my boils drink 5 to 6oz a day and rub it on topical."
[YEA] 11/12/2006: Kortni from Sonora/Riverbank CA: "Biotic Silver cured my first boil but I wasn't careful and it spread as it drained. I wasn't aware of chemtrails and did not pay any attention at the time of my newly formed boil."
Colloidal Silver, Blue Flag Root
[YEA] 07/30/2008: Christina from Cincinnati, Ohio: "I got my first boil several years ago, went to the doctor had it lanced and was put on antibiotics. I decided I didn't want to have to do that again. I have been getting boils on and off since then and have tried various remedies. I tried turmeric it worked great at first but has not done the trick for quite sometime. I did some research to find that Colloidal Silver helped with boils. Ever since then if I start to get a boil I spray with silver (do not rub it will only irritate the boil more). Also if I don't find the boil while it's still small I take Blue Flag Root. The owner of the health food store told me to try it and the silver because he used to get something similar. Blue Flag Root helps with the inflammation and pain of the boil. Together I think this combination has saved me several trips to the doctor."
