Boils are abscess that form when oil, dirt and bacteria become clogged beneath the skin. If you have a boil, you likely already know how large and uncomfortable they can be. A doctor can prescribe you an ointment to place on the boil, helping you to get rid of it, but often times these ointments contain antibiotics or steroids. If you would prefer a more natural remedy, follow along to learn about three different methods.
One of the most natural ways to rid your skin of boils is to use hot water. Simply heat up water so that it is as hot as it can get without burning your skin, and dip a clean cloth in it. Place the warm cloth on the boil. As you do so, pus will begin to gravitate toward the heat. A head will appear and eventually, the heat will pop the head. Unfortunately, this method can cause pain and scarring, so it is only recommended that you do this with boils that are already seeping out pus or boils that are relatively small in size.

Applying baking soda to a boil has also been shown to help rid your body of the boil. It is believed the baking soda helps draw the infection out. Mix equal parts baking soda and water to form a paste. Clean your hands and rub the paste into the boil. Wash your hands well after applying the paste. Allow it to sit on the boil for five to ten minutes. Use a clean cloth to remove the paste from your body.
Having a boil is painful, but luckily, it is not something you have to live with. Using any of these remedies will help you to get rid of the boil naturally.
