Home Remedy For Boil

Heat As A Simple Cure For A Boil

A simple home remedy for boil is to apply a warm compress. The heat will cause the boil to form a head, drain and it will heal much faster. Place a warm, wet washcloth over it for 20 to 30 minutes, three or four times a day, making sure to keep it warm throughout the process (reheat if necessary).

Vitamin E

Another home remedy for boil that you can use is the simple application of vitamin E directly on the boil. Apply vitamin E directly on the boil and bandage it up, three times a day.

Known for their strong antibacterial properties, this combination when used both internally and externally makes for an excellent home remedy for boil.

Take two 500 milligrams capsules of each herb three times daily for seven days and apply an herbal paste to the boil twice a day, for two or three days.

You will need both of the herbs in powder form, which you should be able to find in your health food store, to make the paste. Mix one tablespoon of each herb with enough egg white to form a thick paste. Then spread it directly on the boil.
