Effective folk remedies for treating boils

Factors of occurrence

The causative agent of the infection is usually a pyogenic bacterium - Staphylococcus aureus. This bacterium is present on the skin of any healthy person, and causes infection only if it reaches the deep layer of the skin (for example, through microtrauma). The development of boils is also promoted by:

  • dirty skin;
  • increased sweating;
  • overweight;
  • poor nutrition;
  • hot humid climate;
  • hormonal imbalances in the body;
  • poor metabolism.

People with diabetes mellitus, skin diseases, and those prone to stress and depression are often at risk of developing furunculosis because they have a weakened immune system.

Recipes for making lotions

If the above-described recipes are powerless in the fight against the disease, you can continue treating furunculosis with folk remedies using the following natural ingredients:

  • potatoes with honey. Grate the potatoes on a fine grater until you get a paste, add natural honey to it and carefully apply to the chiri. Change every 2-3 hours until the pus comes out;
  • flour with honey. In a bowl, combine chicken yolk, liquid honey, unsalted butter - 5 g and mix. Gradually pour flour into the mixture until a dough is obtained. Make a cake and apply it to the boil. Secure the honey compress with an adhesive plaster or bandage. The cake is used until the breakthrough;
  • onion applique. Peel one head, place in the oven and cook until softened. Before use, cut the onion in half, place one part on the boil under cheesecloth. Pre-treat the cone with peroxide. Change dressings once a day.

Getting rid of furunculosis should be carried out comprehensively. No recipe will save you from the disease if the problem is inside the body.

The doctor will help determine the provoking factor and develop an effective set of measures. Brewer's yeast is often used to speed up metabolism, replenish vitamin deficiencies and strengthen the immune system.

Stages of development

At the very beginning of development, a boil can easily be confused with an ordinary pimple. However, within 3-4 days the inflammation grows, covering the surrounding tissues. Upon palpation, you can feel the tension and density of these tissues.

After a few more days, a sac with a purulent formation forms in the center of the boil, a necrotic core appears and the tissue softens.

Over time, the boil, unable to withstand a large amount of pus, opens and the pus, rejecting the necrotic core, flows out. After which the swelling gradually subsides and redness passes, and a small scar forms in the center of the former boil.

The most dangerous boils are those that arise near the lips, ears and nose. You should not try to squeeze out boils yourself, even if they have arisen in other locations. This can lead to the spread of infection, which will entail serious complications leading to the development of regional lymphadenitis, lymphangitis, and thrombophlebitis.

Treatment at home

If the immune system is functioning well, the boil will heal itself in 7-8 days. But to make the process go faster, you can treat boils at home:

  • at the initial stage of development, it is necessary to lubricate the abscess with a solution of fucorcin or brilliant green;
  • at the stage of compaction and swelling of the connective tissue, it is good to sunbathe in the sun;
  • To make the boil empty faster, you need to apply ichthyol ointment;
  • It is better to treat an opened abscess with hydrogen peroxide, and also apply bandages with sodium chloride or honey;
  • When the boil begins to heal, it is recommended to apply bandages using Vishnevsky ointment.

To prevent the development of purulent formations, you need to shower daily. Do not scratch the itchy area on the skin. Among other things, it is recommended to wear clothes made from natural fabric.

When to contact a surgeon

Boils can be treated at home only for those who are not at risk (do not suffer from chronic diseases), and boils are small in size (up to 5 mm). You should not self-medicate in the following cases:

  • if the appearance of a formation is accompanied by intense pain and fever;
  • if the abscess has not opened within 2 weeks;
  • if furunculosis has developed;
  • if the abscess occurs in a small child;
  • if the boil is near the nose, lips, in the ear canal;
  • there was a relapse of the disease.

Antibiotic treatment

In cases where the boil is large or located in sensitive areas, and its development is accompanied by intoxication, chills and severe inflammation, the surgeon prescribes antibiotics.

For a large boil and a slight increase in temperature, a weekly course is prescribed: the doctor prescribes clindamycin or doxycycline.

At high temperatures and severe inflammation, a two-week course of treatment is most often prescribed, which includes stronger antibiotic drugs: rifadin, rimactan or other analogues.

Don’t forget, Staphylococcus aureus easily adapts to a variety of antibacterial agents, and as soon as the body’s defenses are slightly reduced, they multiply and form new abscesses. Therefore, people with reduced immunity should immediately consult a doctor and not self-prescribe medications. Keep in mind that if you relapse, they will no longer help you!
