A boil is an infected area of tissue around a hair follicle. It contains a core of pus and can be extremely painful until it comes to a head and the pus is discharged.? Occasionally your body will absorb the boil, in which case, if there is no pain, you need no further treatments.
Boils have been treated by homeopathy.
A boil requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
