Red face BOILS!!!!!

Does anyone ever get a boil? Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. And if you feel one starting, is there anyway to stop them before they get big? Anyone ever had them excised by a doctor? And what do the doctors give you for them or recommend? Please help!!!!!!

desperate for a remedy! HB User

I have had an abscess (boil) on my left cheek since late January 2003. It almost seemed as if there were a small group of cysts that just grew together and became one HUGE abscess. I'm not sure why they occur. I have tried different topical creams and was on Mino for almost 4 months with no result. (The abscess on my cheek actually grew larger whilst on the antibiotics). I heard that cleansing your body of toxins could help clear the boils. My specialist recommended I visit a cosmetic surgoen to have the boil removed as it was large and I was concerned about scarring. I decided to visit a naturopath as a last resort before making any drastic decisions. My boil has decreased significantly..the results are amazing!! If you do search on my username, you should find my previous posts with further info regarding my results with my treatment.

Re: BOILS!!!!!

I use a product called BOIL EASE whenever I get can get it at the drugstore. It is just a cream that you apply, and it brings the boils to a head within a day or two. I have also had the dr drain a couple for me (before I found the boil ease cream) and it wasn't too painful, although packing the incision with the medicated gauze was horriable! Give the boil ease along with moist heat a try! let me know if you have anymore questions!
