Quiet a Throbbing, Painful Boil or Sore
Have you ever had a throbbing painful boil or sore and nothing seems to settle down that fierce pain?
I was treating a wart on my 2nd finger on the right hand some weeks ago. That seemed to pull up the root, but then the spot turned into a boil with some sort of fluid in it. I tried to lance it and got a few drops out but that still smarts like crazy! When I put a bandage on it, it would smart again, as soon as the bandage got wet.
Yesterday I checked online for remedies, and one was to soak it in apple cider vinegar. Well that would be easy. So I poured some into a small medicine cup and put the first part of my longest finger into the cider vinegar. In mere seconds the pain let up! Oh, it felt so good. When I took it out, it would be okay for a few minutes, so then my finger would go in again up to the first joint.
After leaving it in about 15-20 minutes my finger felt much, MUCH better! After a while it occurred to me to spread some aloe vera gel over it for faster healing. The boil or sore is not gone yet, but the throbbing pain has disappeared. I’m now looking for a complete healing soon.
Keep apple cider vinegar and aloe vera handy at all times!
