Thanks so much for the tumeric remedy for boils. I had a cut on my foot that got infected and became a boil. The doctor lanced it and gave me antibiotics, but even the next day it was back with a vengeance. It was worse again the following day, and very painful, I could hardly walk. I found your website, bought basic tumeric powder in the herbs section of the supermarket. At 2pm that day, I had 1 tsp tumeric in half a glass of warm water and again at 8pm. I also made a paste with tumeric powder and water and put a bandage over that, leaving it for about 5 hrs. By 10pm, I removed the bandage, the swelling was greatly reduced and boil had released some fluid (not a lot). The relief really was incredible, I could actually put all my weight on the bad foot with barely any discomfort (earlier that day I was hopping around mostly). So I am a beleiver for sure. It's 3 days later now, and it's nearly better, I am wearing shoes, walking properly and thinking about going for a run tonight. Thanks again.
