Get rid of Boils fast and easy
Boil is a type of skin infection that appears on an oil gland or a hair follicle. Affected area turns red and there is a visible bump that appears on the skin. In the next 4 to 7 days, the red bump turns white and pus begins to accumulate underneath the skin. It can appear anywhere on the body.

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Boils

  • Vitamins A and E
    Vitamin A will improve the immunity of the body and Vitamin E helps maintain a healthy epidermis thereby helping you get rid of the boil.
  • Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil has anti-microbial properties so when you apply it in the undiluted form it may help you get rid of boils. Before application, mix it with carrier oil like almond oil. Use a cotton swab to apply the solution on the affected area.
  • Castor Oil
    Castor Oil has the same affect on the skin as the tea tree oil. The only difference being, it is a little soft on the skin and can be applied in an undiluted form.
  • Turmeric
    Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that help in treatment of boils. The presence of these properties can be attributed to an enzyme known as curcumin which is present in abundance in Turmeric.

Medical Treatment for Boils
If the home remedies fail to heal the boils, you can even try these medical treatments.

OTC Painkillers
Boils may lead to some pain that may occur due to the accumulated pus. Use of pain killers such as Advil and Ibuprofen can provide some relief.

Lancing is the process where a small incision is made in the affected area by use of a sharp piece of metal. Further some pressure is applied to drain out all the pus.

If the infection is severe antibiotics like flucloxacillin, clarithromycin or erythromycin maybe prescribed.
