What is the best way to bring boil to a head?


Answer by  tubeth2000 (104)

As soon as you detect the boil, you go get some Fucidin 2% cream, band aid over it and leave it on for 24 hours. Repeat treatment twice a day.

The best way to bring a boil to a head is to apply warm salt water compresses to the area.


Answer by  Latin4 (11170)

Any boil that I have had in my younger years was cured with something called Black Sauve. The druggist knows about this. Otherwise I would put hot compresses on it.

Use hot compresses. Put hot water and antibacterial soap on a washcloth and place it on the affected area for about fifteen minutes (or soak the part in warm water with antibacterial soap). It may take several treatments of this sort for the boil to come to a head.
