Natural treatments for boils

Boils, known as "furuncles" in the medical field, are round, pus-filled bumps on the skin caused by a Staphylococcus aureus bacteria infection. The infection usually begins deep in the root of the hair follicle and works its way to the surface of the skin. Boils are very common, especially in children and adolescents.

Boils can be caused by stress, illness, toxicity, allergy, decreased immunity and thyroid imbalance.

Boils are red, tender, painful and appear suddenly. Fever and swelling of the lymph glands nearest the boil may occur. Without treatment, a boil will open, then drain and heal in about 10 to 24 days. With treatment, the life of the boil is reduced and its symptoms are contained and less severe.

Boils are contagious. Do not let the draining pus get on the skin elsewhere! It is very important to avoid scratching, since this can cause the infection to spread. When it spreads to nearby areas, the result is called a "carbuncle".

Carbuncles are many-headed boils which tend to combine and grow larger. They are slower healing than boils. The treatment for both boils and carbuncles is the same.

A boil is a way for the body to try to cleanse itself of something bad. The toxins are trying to leave - not through the bowels or kidneys - but through the skin.

 

How to treat boils naturally

We can treat boils internally as well as treat the skin topically, to prevent the boil from coming back.

Garlic is an effective antiseptic, helping to detoxify the body. Incorporate garlic into your diet as much as possible.

Good bowel movement habits are important. Constipation can make skin problems worse because more waste must then be eliminated through the skin. Drink at least 8 cups of water a day, and eat plenty of fiber.

A good healing diet can help the immune system fight the infection. Your diet should be made up of fresh and unprocessed foods as close to their natural state as possible. Eat green leafy vegetables and fruits daily - juicing is a great way to do this. Avoid sugar foods and refined foods such a white bread to a minimum as much as possible.

Go on a brief juice fast, to cleanse your body of impurities. You may also benefit from drinking up to 3 cups a day of an herb tea made by mixing those 3 herbs: Goldenseal, Echinacea, and Burdock Root.

 

 

Treating the skin affected boils directly, using natural methods

Tea tree oil, which is the oil from the leaves of the Australian tea tree, may be used to directly treat the skin where the boil is located. Tea tree oil is a great antibacterial and germicidal agent.(Tea tree oil-based toothpastes and mouthwash may also be used to treat canker sores.)

In some rare cases, hypersensitivity reactions may occur. Only apply a small amount the first time you use tea tree oil, to make sure there is no irritation of the skin. Tea tree oil may burn if it comes in contact with the eyes, the mouth or the nose. Finally, do not ingest the oil.

Tea tree oil is safe for children as it is for adults. Tea tree oil is non-toxic and can be applied at full strength to boils. Apply a light coating 3 to 4 times a day, and continue for 2 weeks after the infection has disappeared.

When buying Tea Tree Oil, look for pure 100% tea tree oil. In my opinion the best prices for high quality Tea Tree Oil can be found here. I also like Puritan Pride's special "Buy 1 Get 2 FREE" promotions on Tea Tree Oil.
