Having recently had my second Boil eruption in two weeks, after spending the first 46 years of my life being boil free, I knew that something wasn't quite right. I thankfully discovered this site and have used the powers of turmeric to successfully treat this second boil on my neck. The boil was red and angry when I started taking 1/2 tsp of turmeric 4 times a day. What I also did was make a paste that I applied topically. The paste was made with a Cetrimide ointment (branded as Savlon here in the UK) and turmeric powder. This paste was covered with a sticking plaster and changed twice a day. The results have been amazing. After three days the boil has completely drained and the skin has almost healed. What remains is what looks like the remnants of a love bite, but this is more due to some staining of the skin by the spice than any skin reaction. I don't know if it would have healed as well without the paste - but what I do know is that attacking the boil from within and from the outside has cleared the problem faster than I would ever have thought possible. Thank goodness for the internet!!
External Application of Turmeric
...equal parts yogurt and turmeric powder.. just enough to cover the boil. heat it up in the microwave till warm.. then use a piece of bread to soak it up and apply to boil for at least half an hour. boil should come to head. at night: leave on honey and turmeric over boil. wash off in morning.
