I had a terrible 2 inches boil last week. At first i thought it was a lymph node.So I tried AVC. No effect. I had high fever during the 4th night, so I decided to see a doctor in the morning. When I was about to leave my cousin check me at she said its a boil. So I check out this site to look for remedies for boil and TURMERIC POWDER is the answer. The size of the boil decrease from approximately 2 to 1 inch in just 2 days. Am still taking the turmeric powder (1 glass of water 1 tsp turmeric powder add honey to taste)AMAZING.....thanks to this website..its a life saver..am recommending this everybody

Turmeric is a Miracle. Yes, Yes!! I have had suffering from boils for 3 years plus. A recurring one under my right arm (very painful) and several on buttocks. Went to a few doctors but nothing worked to stop them coming. Recently I read on this site and I gave a try to turmeric cure. I should ssy the results were surprising. Within days the presistent nasty boils started to heal and so far keeping on good consumption of turmeric they didn't came back. Alex

I read the testimonials and was convinced to try turmeric for a boil. I had just had one lanced and packed with gauze, and had to take a quadruple dose of antibiotics for ten days, despite which I still developed a fever from the infection. by the ninth day the packing strip was out and the incision was healing but the swelling and tenderness were coming back; either the same boil had a recess isolated from the initial drain or another one had formed in almost exactly the same place. when that boil was almost as big as the first one, and still no sign of coming to a head despite warm compresses daily, i tried drawing salve, to no effect. but it felt somewhat better after one dose of turmeric, and after one full day of taking it, the boil had almost disappeared. the pain is almost gone - only when i press in certain areas do i feel sore. the swelling is totally gone. however, the boil never did come to a head or drain so i am a bit concerned that it has not fully retreated. i am going to keep taking the turmeric and hope it continues to prevent future boils! as a side effect, i did experience diarrhea today. but i am hoping the anti-inflammatory properties will be able to help my colitis and eczema in the future - i wish i had known about this years ago! It's about the cheapest remedy you could ask for, if you buy in bulk. i have been mixing the turmeric with water and lemon juice, but i'm eager to try other ways. it has stained my toothbrush orange :)

I was looking online for a natural remedy for boils and came across your site with very little hope but to go the doctor. OMG!! I tried the turmeric powder in a glass of warm water 3x's a day and after the first day seen results. I have had this boil on the upper part of my gential area for about a month after suffering from a yeast infection. It has popped and drained 3x's and still would not heal until I started taking the Turmeric and using Neosporin ointment. This is great!! In the future I will look for a more natural healing process versus running straight to the doctor's office. Thanks again for giving me this option..

Checked this site for boil help and tried tumeric. It works just as the other posts indicated. After one day, pain and swelling subsides. After a few more days, newer boil gone, older stubborn boil 95 percent gone. I took capsules. Highly recommended.

I tried nearly everything to get rid of my boil but nothing worked like the combination of oatmeal, turmeric, salt and baking soda mixed with warm water. It cured a nasty boil I had under a cuticle in my pinky nail. I soaked my finger in it for 30 minutes and it want from swollen, red and throbbing to where I could almost touch it again in one treatment. I had tried everything else and read about those ingredients here and came up with that.. It WORKS! I also took 1/2 tsp of turmeric in some warm water and swallowed it down. Between the 2 it really worked. I will probably repeat the process 2-3 more times and I'm sure it will be totally gone. I noticed that I am susceptible to staph every month right before I begin my monthly cycle. I usually get a boil in my bottom or upper thigh, but I can cure it with a baking soda/water paste. This one on my finger cuticle was a first for me and lingered for 3 weeks til I found the oatmeal, warm water, salt, turmeric and baking soda paste. Like I said, I tried everything else and nothing worked like that!

i noticed i had yet another boil developing on my bottom and yesterday i took three servings of acidophilus (morning, noon, night) and last night drank 1 tsp of turmeric mixed with warm water. I also took a bath in which i added salt and tea tree and lavender oil. This morning I found that the boil had lessened in size and was less painful. I am continuing today with the same program. I am very excited with the results. this remedy keeps a boil from breaking the skin. I am forever grateful to those who supplied this info.

I've been suffering from monthly recurring boils for the past 6 months. Twice I've taken antibiotics and had the boils disappear, only to have them reappear a month or two later. This website was a blessing for me. I drank turmeric, took neem, and an Indian concoction called Safi. This did not make the boils disappear, but it made more stop from coming (before, without antibiotics, more boils would constantly emerge). I later bought Silver 100 from Invision International (seems to be the best one out there), and that has accelerated the healing process. I also had to eat yogurt, because of the detox-effect of silver. Yogurt happens to have acidophilus in it, which I've seen recommended here.

I have a tip on a 3-step external healing-process for a boil.
1) Use hot water to make the boil open,
2) Use baking soda to get rid of the infection and swelling (this is wonderful!), and
3) Use a mixture of turmeric and raw honey to accelerate wound healing.

I have had a large cyst on my left leg for about a year. Last month, i started taking turmeric to make it better. I started with one capsule a day, eventually working up to 3 or 4. Turmeric hasn't helped at all and now i have found another cyst. It is a sebaceous cyst and I'm not sure if it is the same as a boil, because turmeric hasn't helped worth a crap. Is there a difference between sebaceous cysts and boils? And does anyone know what i can do about this? Also, haw many 450mg turmeric capsules is it safe to take at one time?

Hello. I have repeated staph outbreaks for years and have given it to all girlfiriends in this time as well as two of my brothers. We tried Turmeris and it has had absolutly no effect at all. My latest boil has grown huge despite large doses of Turmeric three times a day and I have a strict organic vegetarian diet.

I read alot about how Turmeric can cure a boil so I went and purchased a bottle of 400 MG of Turmeric for $12.00. I took two a day for a week and it did nothing! My boils are worse. My one boil went from 1 to 5 now. Did I add they are larger now? I also tried Castor Oil treatments and Ichmathol. Ichmathol did bring one boil to a head and it did drain but it didn't touch the other ones. I do seem worse since I took Turmeric. I say contact your DR. for any kind of swollen lymph nodes because this can be fatal!

Thursday, October 05, 2006, I developed a bump on the apple of my right cheek. It was itchy, tender, and it had a pinching aching feeling. As it quickly got bigger, I assumed it was either a cyst or a boil. By Saturday, it had become so big I got worried so I checked out the advice from the book, "Doctor's Book of Home Remedies." It suggested putting a warm/hot compress on it. I did this but it did not help. It turned the skin where the boil is (assuming it is a boil) very red. I think it may have even made it bigger. Anyway, it was not improving. In fact, the itching and pinching feeling intensified. I couldn't even lay on that side of my face to sleep and I had to be very gentle washing that part of my face. On Monday, I looked up some research on the Internet and came across this Website. I read about the "Turmeric remedy" and immediately started the procedure especially since the boil had not even come close to coming to a head. Since Monday night I have been taking a teaspoon of turmeric in warm water 3x a day. When I first started this remedy it totally relieved all the uncomfortable symptoms. The itchy, pinching, aching, soreness, and even the little bit of burning sensation was gone. It also reduced a little bit in size. It has now been a little more than 3 days that I've been following this remedy (have drank a total of 10 glasses of the remedy so far) but nothing more is happening. Yes, all the discomforts/tenderness are gone, but the boil is still here. No, it's not getting bigger, but it's not getting smaller either...it's not going away, it hasn't disappeared at all. As a matter a fact it is just staying exactly the same for almost 4 days. Is this normal or am I just being impatient. By the way, I have not become constipated at all from the turmeric and I am also doing the oil pulling procedure. I would appreciate any feedback at all. Thanks.
