Try putting about 5 or 6 cloves of garlic in a bathtub of warm water and soaking for an hour or two. Do this everynight for about a week, you will see a difference after the first night. IT IS AMAZING!!

I broke out with 6 Staph infections on 1/24/10. These are not my first and I have tried many homeopathic treatments, but always ended up on antibiotics. Not willing to give up, I tried a new regimine. I took raw garlic 3x's a day along with colloidal silver, tumeric, and apple cider vinegar in my water. I also gave up coffee, white sugar and white flour. By the following Sunday all the infections had drained, the corks where out and and I could sit down again. I believe it was the raw garlic that helped fight the infection without antibiotics. I will continue taking raw garlic everyday to avoid further outbreaks. I have been fighting MRSA for a year and a half.

To Steven from Los Angeles, Barbara from Las Vegas, Nevada.

I am forever in your debt, thank you very very much for your post.

I moved to Japan 5 years ago and since then have been suffering the daily horrors of boils - mostly around my chin.

I tried your tips, both the oil from a crushed garlic clove, which neutralised the pain and over night a sliced clove applied to the boils.

Truly magical. I cant believe how quickly it works. It stings a little when you apply it, but if you can just grit your teeth and remember that the pain comes from the cleansing.

I've tried almost everything else; baking soda that cleansed the boil, but didn't seem to speed up the healing process greatly - an improvement but not much.

From my experience Garlic Oil and Cloves worked best for me.

Thanks again <3

It seems that ever since hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast we have been battling more and more cases of boils. I have found that GARLIC helps get rid of boils. At any stage in the cycle of the boils if you get the 1000 mg GARLIC capsules and squeeze the gel onto the boil it will get it to come to a head and drain or the boil will disappear completely.It generally takes a few days but it does work to eleviate the swelling and pain and its effective in healing the boils. Its safe for children.At the first signs of even a bump take one gel capsule and sqeeze the gel onto the bump then rub it in aftewards throw away the used capsule and wash your hands. Repeat this at least three times daily until the boil is gone.

I have had recurring boils since 1996 under the breast area and over all of the abdominal region and ocassionally on the inner thigh region. Application of active magnesium was helpful but painful. Garlic hi-dose of 20,000mg did reduce and clear but 2 are still stubbornly remaining as scars and do reappear if I stop garlic for a few months. But the recurrence is controlled with ingestion of garlic again. But my abdominal area is covered by the ugly spots and scars.

I have studied natural health for many years and was recently contacted by a friend to see if I knew anything about getting rid of boils. i told her to cut a clove of garlic in half and tape it on to the top of the boil. She called me just a few hours later and said the garlic was causing to boil to drain very quickly and the boil was gone almost over night. Barbara

I've been getting boils for over a year now. I tried treating them with magic clay, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, garlic and heat. Heat works well especially if you can soak the boil in hot water, as hot as you can stand as staph is requires a narrow temperature range to survive. The best remedy by far has been to put some liquid from a freshly crushed garlic clove directly on the boil. This may cause a burning sensation and if it is too much dilute it. Usually it will be gone in 24 hours, at most 48.

Occasionally, I've had a problem with boils. I take a 1000 mg gelcap of garlic and that's all I need to do. I take it once a day, and the boil drains, usually in the first day. Sometimes it takes two days.
