Here I am sharing with you few tips to easily manage a boil or small abscess.

When I was working in Hospital's Surgery OPD,I used to prescribe Homeopathic medicines in various surgical cases,Boils,Abscesses were two most treated cases.People were happy to take Homeopathic medicines because they believe Homeopathy has no side effects.
Every case of cut injury takes around 4 to 7 days to heal with Homeopathic treatment.Boils or abscess cases takes few more 1 to 2 weeks..but we got really good results in almost each and every case.Boils usually do not need immediate emergency attention. However, if you are in poor health and you develop high fever and chills along with the infection,then only Doctor’s advise is needed. Causes of developing a boil- Most boils are caused by staphylococcal bacteria.
This bacteria enters the body through tiny nicks or cuts in the skin or can travel down the hair to the follicle. These health problems make people more susceptible to skin infections: Diabetes Poor nutrition Poor hygiene Exposure to chemicals that irritate the skin Problems with the immune system Symptoms of Boils The skin around the boil becomes infected. It turns red, painful, warm, and swollen. More boils may appear around the original one. A fever may develop. Lymph nodes may become swollen. Sometime you have no possibilities to go to a Doctor when you are little bit busy in your office or a routine work.If you are worried about your skin condition which is not so serious,you can manage it with self medications..
So,I want to share my experience about those cases that you can use these in your daily life.. When to start? If these cases are recent origin and your condition of health is not so poor.
Few things you need to notice before medicate yourself.
Color of boil-Red,Yellow,Blue,greenish,Purple = you can treat only first two conditions easily.if you find the case turned to different colours,you need to visit nearest clinic.
Painful or painless-Pain indicates nerve is sensitive in that area..That is more common in infections. Pus point present or not -Pus point is important before starting,..If you find pus point,you can start exploring pus by wiping off with cotton. Associated problems-High Blood glucose level..You should not take it easily.Go and take specialists care soon.
