Looking for home treatment of boils? There are lots of options, but while some may work, it's important to see your doctor if you suspect the abscess is infected or you're experiencing other serious symptoms like extreme pain.....
While everyone likes the idea of using home treatment remedies - you should never treat a boil that is so far along that it's swollen or infected. If that is the case, you may have to have it drained.
Boils can start out very small - like a nodule - and sometimes even look like a pimple. But, over time it usually grows larger and develops a white head when it becomes abscessed (infected).
This is where you have to be careful, because the white center contains pus which can be infectious. That's why it's important to have it drained by a doctor, instead of trying to lance it yourself at home.
If it's not infected, consider trying a natural treatment. Make sure to wash your hands before and after - so as not to spread the infection.
If you're constantly getting boils, you may want to look at your diet. Are you eating enough fruits, veggies? Are you drinking enough clean water? Or are you a soda/coffee junkie.
While there is no scientific proof that a clean diet will prevent boils, it certainly can't hurt. Some people suspect that the toxic substances that accumulated within the body could cause of formation of boils.
Also, consider trying a natural spray is pretty easy to use and not as messy as some of the other home remedies. Also you won't to worry about messy creams and lotions staining your clothes because it's taken internally.
