Did you find any painful, pus filled lumps on your skin? These painful lumps are usually referred as carbuncles, which are mainly caused when a group of hair follicles become infected.
Carbuncles can develop at any hairy area of your skin, particularly in sweaty areas such as face, neck, buttocks and area around anus.
Carbuncles can affect anyone at any age, but more often teenagers and young adults are at high risk of developing these pus-filled, painful bumps on skin.
If left untreated, carbuncles may get larger, tense and also painful as more pus will be accumulated in the lump. Eventually, after few days, the lump tends to burst and the infectious pus will spread to surrounding areas of your skin and accordingly the infection spreads to other areas on your skin.
So, to avoid such undesirable condition, it is very essential for you to take proper treatment for carbuncles.
Tea tree oil!
Tea tree oil has many antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties. So, it is widely used by many individuals in the treatment of boils and carbuncles and it also speeds up the healing process and relieves you from the pain caused by lumps.
To apply tea tree oil, dab a cotton swab into the tea tree oil and gently apply it on the painful lump. Be careful while disposing the used swab, so that it doesn’t make any contact with uninfected region on your skin.
The healing properties of cumin seeds greatly help you to cure boils and also carbuncles. Take few cumin seeds and grind them to make a fine pulp with water and make thick paste of it. Apply this paste on the affected part of your skin and let it remain for few minutes. Repeat this procedure at least twice in a day to get effective results.
This is the best way to treat boils or carbuncles. Take a clean wash cloth and dip it in fairly warm water and place it on your painful lump for 10-15 minutes. Make sure that the compress is warm and wet. Repeat this process at least 5 times in a day to speed up the healing process.
Cleansing stomach toxins!
This is another way to get better relief from carbuncles. Due to buildup of toxins in your body, after a period of time, you can experience several eruptions that indicate your body needs to be purged. So, to achieve this, take a glass of bitter gourd juice or neem leaves juice and add a tea spoon of lemon juice. Take this mixture of juice with empty stomach for several times to completely detoxify your stomach.
