Honey and other Foods for Abscesses and Boils :

Honey alone or with other ingredients has been used to treat acscessesand boils for thousands of years. Honey can be applied alone on the skin and there are now preparations that contain honey as one of their ingredients, or mixed with other foods to make some dermatological applications.

In case honey is made into paste, you can follow this procedure:

# Mix the resultant paste with honey and use it as a poultice repeatedly.
