Simple and Easy Home Remedies for Boils



Boils are basically an infection in a hair follicle or an oil gland that has been traumatized or become blocked in some way. A boil, though very painful, is a relatively harmless condition that will last about ten days and then disappear. Boils usually develop in regions of the body that experience friction or pressure, e.g.  Face, armpit, groin, shoulders and buttocks.

Toothache Home Remedies That Work

Home remedies for boils often involves drawing the pus from beneath the skin and then healing of the open sore that is left behind. This isn’t recommended because it often leads to scaring once the boil heals.

Cornmeal can be used as a poultice to draw out the pus in the boil.  This is because cornmeal has properties that readily absorb moisture.

The easiest way to remove a boil at home is to use a warm compress. Warmth increases the pressure in the infected pore as it slowly draws pus and blood to the surface of the skin. With regular application, the boil should eventually burst open and drain fully.


Onions and Garlic have long been famous for their medicinal properties.  A chunk of onion applied directly to the boil, or alternatively three or four cloves of garlic, are great ways to draw the boil to a head.

Above all, when the boil begins to drain away, make sure you do not allow the pus to contaminate the surrounding skin, as this will cause further problems that will need attention.
