Once a boil has popped will it get better on its own?
my 10 year old daughter has a 15cm boil on the back of her leg,we put drawing ointment on it and it popped but it is still just as huge,sore and red i jhave never seen a boil so big it is really really hard over a huge area of her leg

See a doctor. She may be lacking some vitamins or supplement in her diet.See that the wound is clean and apply neosprin powder to keep it dry at all times and free from germs and tiny nats that may sit on it and lay eggs and cause more problems like maggots etc. Pleae check with your doctor at the earliest.

oh man... sorry im not really sure. you should see your doctor about it!

yeah but put a hot compresss on for a few hours it works great

Rubber Cranium
Yup! Unless you have a genetic pre-disposition to regenerate eyeballs in place of lanced boils. That might prove... awkward.

It can get better for sure, but you have to keep a close eye on it and you have to keep it very very clean. Any streaking, any increase in the redness, and you need to go to the Dr. right away. If you see any streaks leading out from it do not delay. 24 hrs should tell the tale. If it is better in 24 hrs then it is going to heal up on it's own, if kept clean. If it doesn't show improvement, then you need to get to the Dr. Keep checking her temperature over the next 24 hrs too.

Are you sure it's a boil? If it is, did you get the root out? If you didn't, it'll come back.
If it isn't a boil, you could be looking at an infected spider bite. Or worse, a brown recluse bite. check on the web for signs and symptoms to be absolutely certain.
My Mom had a boil on the back of her calf and thought it was infected until it grew to the size of a quarter and was oozing. She went to the doc and she was lucky. It was a brown recluse bite that was caught early so she didn't have to have her leg amputated. Don't mean to scare you but...If you live in a region where they are native to, you have to be careful.

killing is making a choice
Yes, it'll get better by itself. Just warm compress it to make it feel better and to keep the swelling and redness under control.

It can, but it might not; there are some really nasty bugs out there which could cause further invasion with serious or fatal consequences. Get the kid to a doctor right away.

let a . dr. check it the seed has to com out or it will come back and your child needs medicaation to kill infection to make sure there.s no staff infection set.s up my honest opion?

I think you should take her to her doctor to make sure it is not infected. Or call the "question" number on the back of your insurance card:
It sounds like the area it is is covering is pretty big.
I listed a website. It has to be determined what caused the boil and therefore the treatment. She may need an antibiotic skin cream. I hope she feels better. I know stuff with kids usually gets worse before it gets better.
Good Luck !

yes it will get better..... there is a product i bought called "draw out" that is suppose to help draw the stuff out but does it STINK and it is black and will stain everything...... so i just put neo sporen on a bandage and kept it on it and that helped it a LOT.... you may have to keep opening it but it will get better

sorry to hear about it. I would check webmd.com


if a huge area of her leg is hard she should see a doctor.


Do you have hydrogen peroxide? Put some on it. Check it again later because you may not have gotten all the "stuff" out. It should shrink within hours.

Be sure that it is cleaned out well as this can lead to more infection and soreness if it isnt well cleaned. Once its clean, put some Neosporin on it and cover it up for awhile to allow themedicaiton to soak in and to prevent irritation.

do take her to the DR. it sounds infected. Mine popped - it was still infected - if its huge, red, and sore please they hurt and can lead to blood poisoning

Keep it clean and covered with a bandage. Neosporin under the bandage should keep infection down. ~

Keep it clean, disinfected, and covered for a while, put NeoSporin on it. It may not be done yet, might still have more to come out. Don't mess with it other than to keep it clean and covered and disinfected.

If it starts developing red streaks around it or coming out from it, or green, discolored puss starts leaking from it, take her in to the dr.

Healing Oneself
Hi Zoro

Here are some ideas on how to heal the issue. Learn about detoxifing the blood for long term health (colon and liver cleansing).

The infection is usually due to the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.

Recurrent boils can occur in people with decreased immune function, diabetes, chronic gastrointestinal problems, under active thyroid, lowered resistance due to borderline nutrient deficiencies, and chronic emotional stress.


Natural Cures

Note: Bursting a boil can spread it, leaving scars, and usually does no good until the core is expelled.

Aromatherapy: Draw out the boil with bergamot, lavender, chamomile, and clary sage.

Ayurveda: To bring boil to a head, apply a poultice of cooked onions. Wrap in cloth and do not apply onion directly to boils. Application of a paste of 1/2 teaspoon each of tumeric and ginger powder directly to boil.

Diet: Eat plenty of green, orange, and yellow vegetables, which are cleansing (try to have at least four different types of green vegetables a day, and keep this up for at least six months). Increase fluids, drinking water throughout the day, and drinking water with juice of fresh lemon and one teaspoon of chlorophyll upon rising and before bed. Also avoid over-consumption of white sugar and white flour products.

Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® can be applied (minimum four times a day) on unbroken skin around, but not directly on, boils. Flower essences for negative feelings surrounding the problem, such as Rescue Remedy® to help alleviate stress or Crab Apple for low self-esteem, negative body image, and feeling toxic.

Herbs: A blend of the tinctures of echinacea, cleavers, and yellowdock in equal parts, taken one teaspoonful three times a day can help speed the healing time for boils. Additionally, drinking a cup of an infusion of nettle, preferably fresh herb, twice a day, can be helpful.

Homeopathy: Bellis, Belladonna, Hepar sulph., Arnica, Silicea, Apis mel., Arsen alb., and Lachesis are all useful homeopathic remedies that can be taken alone or in combination with each other. Phytolacca is another useful remedy, but it must be taken alone.

Juice Therapy: Juice of parsley, spinach, celery, and pineapple may help to purify the blood. As an alternative, beet root juice can also be used, and is a traditional remedy used in Europe to help treat boils.

Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can all be helpful for treating boils, due to their ability to boost immunity: garlic capsules, kelp, chlorophyll, proteolytic (pancreatic) enzymes (taken on empty stomach two to three times daily away from meals), vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, raw thymus glandular, and zinc.

For boils compounded by chronic emotional stress, also consider adrenal and thymus glandulars, vitamin B5 (1 gram four times daily), and vitamin C (1 gram every hour).

Topical Treatment: Apply a mixture of honey, the oil from vitamins E and A, and zinc oxide to the infected areas. Do this several times a day, up to once per hour. Other effective topical treatments include a poultice of goldenseal root powder paste, hot Epsom salt pack (two tablespoons in one cup water), tea tree oil, or a poultice of one part sesame oil and one part lime juice mixed and applied externally.

Colloidal silver applied topically can also result in marked improvements.

Alternative Professional Care
If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of boils: Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Fasting, Guided Imagery, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Osteopathy, Oxygen Therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Best of health to you
