I’m getting multiple boils not little ones. I’ve been putting rawleighs on it, its a medical cream. I’ve heard that garlic is good but I’m afraid garlic might hurt me more. I’ve kept it clean. Washed my hands regularly. Got them covered with waterproof bandage. What more can I do.

  • I have used Magnoplasum on it with a dressing over the top it will draw the head out. But you’ve had a few so I would go to the Drs as I think you need Antibiotics to stop them, also you are lacking something in your diet so might be vegetables.

  • If you’ve been to your GP about it and you’re following their instructions to clear the boils up, then I’m at a loss as to what else to suggest. Possibly another GP appointment for a follow up

  • I have had boils in the past ( normally under my skin ) and sometimes it might appear in unexpected places like on your face ! I think it happens to me when get extremely stressed and it might even be caused by low immune at the time . If I do get one and it gets bigger as the days go past, I have no choice but to go to a GP for antibiotics . So take care .

  • I did see a doctor. I got antibiotics and hopefully this would stop them. Im allergic to flopan which is the last antibiotic given to me so i had to change it. Last antibiotics as im allergic to all the rest

  • Drink heaps of water as it helps clear them

  • I’ve been told turmeric works you can either use it on your food or mix it with water and put it on your boils overnight :).

  • i would see the gp. they will help you. Try to make sure that your diet and immune system is good as well. Keep your bedding clean, use towels on your couch until you are better. I know that you are trying to be clean anyway but all precautions are helpful

  • Boils are a staph infection. See your GP & get antibiotics.
