Home Remedy for Boils
Boils are nothing, but a skin disease, caused by the
infection of hair follicles. The problem is usually caused by
Staphylococcus, a strain of bacterium that normally lives on the skin
surface. While some boils which come and fade away on their own, without
causing any trouble, others last a long time and cause pain and
irritation. Face, shoulders, back, buttocks and underarms are the
regions where boils usually occur. Boils do not come instantly. At
first, the affected area becomes red and soft. There may be an itching
sensation as well. Slowly, the boil begins to form. The bacteria that
cause boils might also mix with the white blood cells, resulting in the
formation of pus. Boils can be cured using some home remedies. Not only
