  • Poultice pack, or a very warm washcloth till it comes to a head and pop it. I'd suggest getting it looked at by a doc though. I had what I thought was just a boil, turns out it was a cyst that needed surgery.

  • Not sure what type of boils you are talking about, but know of a company that manufactures products that have been known to keep recurring breakouts from MRSA staph infection. I have heard of a particular doctor's office that has collected info. about this company to pass on to their MRSA patients. These are naturally based. Great company.

  • Boils are staph bacteria. You don't want to break them open. The bacteria can travel into new hair follicles and pores and make more boils. A lot of boils actually require a good anti biotic. Don't play around with them. You can get MRSA.
