[YEA] Tumeric, Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil, Neosporin curing my boils. I had what I had thought was a pimple get severely infected so that it had spread down my inner thigh. About one week later, I had five very tender areas on my upper inner thigh. I ended up with 5 boils. The area from my groin down to my knee was swollen & red. I was deperate and started serching the internet for cures. I found Earth Clinic. We had tumeric on the spice rack. Started taking it immediately. I mixed one tsp in a small glass of warm water four times a day. AMAZING!!I also applied very warm water compresses every two hours for 15 minutes each. Within 8 hours, two of the most painful ones had come to a head. Within another 4 hours the other 3 had come to a head. After two weeks, they were healed. I had a few hard bumps left and came back to Earth Clinic. Discovered Vitamin E for the hard bumps. I now have tumeric capsules (450mg per capsule)! I have found that thanks to onset of menopause, the boils will continue for a while. I now take one capsule of tumeric/two capsules of vitamin E in the morning & one capsule of tumeric at night before bed. The hard leftover bumps fade out faster. I made the mistake of skipping the tumeric/vitamin E for two days and had a very nasty boil flair up! Tea Tree oil mixed with tumeric and put on the boil helps to soothe and bring to a head. Make the tea tree oil & tumeric into a thick paste (1/4 tsp of tumeric & a few drops of tea tree oil)and spread on a bandage, apply the bandage to the boil, change every four to six hours. After the boil opened with a little help from a sharp needle dipped in alcohol, I made a paste of neosporin and tumeric, spread on a bandage, and applied the bandage over the boil. After three days from start (Thursday) to today (Saturday) the boil has opened, is draining and the pain is fading fast!My sister who has dealt with boils for years and spent over $5000 on doctors, medicine and first aid aupplies. I have spent about $50! THANK YOU EarthClinic!
