Boils are very common. Especially, during the summer season, boils could irritate you as they are painful and take some time to heal.
Sometimes, bacteria could cause boils and that is when inflammation could make things worse. Pus cells indicate infection in that area.
Generally, boils develop in areas where bacteria can survive easily. Butt, arm pits, thighs and other moist areas are more vulnerable.
Most of the boils aren't life threatening and may heal with the help of home remedies. But if they don't heal in a couple of days and you see other symptoms like high body temperature, pain, inflammation, redness, new boils coming up and so on, visit a doctor immediately.
If the boil isn't severe, try the following home remedies.
Grind a garlic and an onion into paste and smear it around the boil. Stick a bandage. The boil gets drained and may heal faster. Also, garlic contains sulphur which can heal wounds.
Grind a few neem leaves into paste. As neem is antiseptic, applying it on the boil can speed up the healing process. It also kills bacteria.
Epsom salt baths can drain the pus out of the boil. Add Epsom salt to hot water tub and spend some time soaking yourself in it.
Take a cup of hot water and dip a small piece of cotton and place it on the boil. Doing this several times can bring the pus out.
Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and antiseptic in nature. Smear some turmeric on the boil to heal it faster.
If the boil doesn't heal fast in a day or two, rush to the doctor as it could be an infection.
