Taking Care of Skin Boils

by on May.13, 2013, under Health

Skin boils could possibly be the most painful kind of inflammations you could have. Soon or later, that inflammation develops an “eye” where pus is stored and later, it pops open. If you want to remove your skin boils as soon as possible, here are a few things you need to know.

 

  1. Hot Compress

Hot compress for at least 3-4 times a day on the areas with skin boils could open up the “eye” areas and allow pus to flow outside. If the boil is not yet “ripe” and is still too painful and hard, hot compress it until it begins to swell and pop pus out.

  1. Antibiotics

Take care of skin boils by taking antibiotics. Any antibiotic with bacitracin zinc is powerful enough to kill the bacteria inside your infected boil and prevent other bacteria to get inside. Apply antibiotics on the affected areas if topical, or take them as prescribed in their containers daily.

  1. Eat Anti-Inflammatory Food

Eating Kelp, Turmeric, Salmon and Papaya could help your body recover from the boils quickly as these keep the skin healthier. Most of these food have vitamin C and E and papain, which is crucial because it reduces inflammation and helps heal burns.

  1. Keep the Wounds Clean

Ensure that the popped “eyes” are cleaned thoroughly with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide before applying new amounts of antibiotic and dressing the wound.
