In the video below, How To Care For A Boil, Jackie describes what a boil is and how you can treat boils for a speedy healing process. Here’s a summary of some of the facts she shares about how to treat a boil:
Boils are a form of skin abscess. Pus is collected deep within the skin and results in reddish tenderness that can become swollen and painful. After some time, boils begin to soften as they are filled with white blood cells to fight off infection.
Sometimes boils are caused by staphylococcus, a type of bacteria. Other times the causes of boils include clogged oil ducts which later become infected. Serious cases should be referred to a doctor for advise on how to treat a boil on the skin.
Treat boils by resisting the urge to squeeze as this can spread the infection. A warm compress should be applied to the area 2 – 3 times each day to soften the skin boil. The area surrounding the boil should be kept clean. Apply a saline solution to the boil once it has opened using a wash cloth. Saline is made up of warm water and salt and helps to dry up the boil and reduce the amount of pus.
