I always use sugar and soap poultice for boils
I remember as a child my mam talking about poultices and a sugar and soap one stuck in my head. I recently got a large painful boil under my arm, caused, I think, by an ingrown hair. It was getting bigger and more painful so I mixed hand soap with granulated sugar. I pasted it onto a dressing and stuck it on the boil. Next morning the boil had burst and all the blood and pus had been drawn out. I continued keeping it covered for a few days and it healed completely. Absolutely fabulous remedy !
