Boils are skin conditions that come as a result of presence of bacteria in the hair follicles of our bodies. According to some people, it may also be caused by bacteria in the intestinal area due to damage on the skin. Although they may not be necessarily serious, boils that keep recurring or one that stays longer than one week should force you to visit a doctor for immediate attention. However, there are enough natural cures for boils that can be used even if you do not visit the doctor. This article gives a few examples of natural cures for boils.

 

To begin with, tea tree oil has been used as a natural antiseptic that kills bacteria. It is one of the best options to deal with boils. To use it, undiluted drops should be applied to the boil directly in the night and also in the morning before getting into daily activities. Despite that many people used to think that squeezing boils can be a good way to deal with them, it can lead to unwanted scarring. With this oil, your patience is necessary to see solution.

 

Lemon juice is another natural solution to boils. This is done by simply squeezing it in small container then applying on the boil directly. This should be done daily until positive result is witnessed. Apart from healing the boil, lemon juice has enough nutrition that can help to protect the body and thus help it to heal naturally. In fact, it can also be used to help in prevention by mixing lemon juice with water and cleaning your face and the underarms with it each day.

 

Calendula is also a good remedy for curing boils. The cream containing calendula can be found in the stores for local health centers. It is recommended that the cream be applied every morning and night until the solution is witnessed. Without interfering with the boil, it will automatically clear on its own after the calendula cream is used accordingly.

 

Some people also recommend the use of heat on a boil. Although this may not be safe, it is said that heat will help to release stagnating bloods which is assumed to be the cause of pain in the boil. Once the heat is applied and the coated blood moves, fresh blood will come near the affected area to activate the healing process.

 

All these natural methods can only work well if persistence and commitment to medication is ensured. The patient must therefore make it upon themselves to be committed to medication. This is the only way to ensure consistent and thus the healing will be easily realized.

Treatment Of Boils

A boil, also known as furuncle, is an infection that attacks the skin deeply. It affects the hair follicle and is brought about by a bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus. Boil attack is identified by swollen skin which ends up in accumulated pus with dead tissue under the skin. When boils are clustered together, they form what is known as carbuncles. The bacterium that causes it is round in form and it is usually found in form of single cells or pairs, but in rare cases they form clusters.

 

The bumpy red lumps that are filled with pus normally range from small sizes to bigger ones, although they go through the process of maturity. As painful as they are, sometimes you will find that boils recur several times. Such recurring boils are called furunculosis.  Like other skin infections, it can also be transmitted to other family members through contact.

 

Treating boils

 

Traditionally, people have always believed that squeezing boils is a good way to treat them. Although it worked for them somehow, squeezing boils can result into other complications that can even be more dangerous. Through opening the boils, it can either spread to other places or even worsen into chronic wound.

 

The use of cloth that is soaked in warm salty water can be applied to drain the boils. Antibiotics are the best antibacterial cure for boils. They are used to cover the affected area and tied with a bandage for a while to encourage healing. If you ever feel the kind of boil you have should be squeeze, a specialist is the best to guide you in that regard; doing it alone can be risky since it can make it spread and cause more infection.

 

When the boils are larger and recurrent, antibiotic therapy is found to be most helpful. When a doctor is administering treatment for boils, the area affected should be thoroughly cleaned. Apart from that, those furuncles the can lead to more infection should be removed by incision. The best practice is to have someone who is experienced to drain the boil for you, if you are not able to see your medical doctor about it.

 

The treatment of boils has been met by a number of challenges. Apart from lack of enough money to see a specialist doctor, there have been thousands of reports about resistance to medication. This means that a lot of care is needed to make sure that its treatment method is effective and successful.
