Natural Cures and Remedies for Abscesses

Poultices and fomentations are suitable for strains, sprains, cuts, stings, burns, skin conditions, abscesses, and pain. Depending on the problem, I typically recommend using one or the other for 10 to 30 minutes at a time. I’ve found it helpful in some cases to apply gentle heat over the herbs or saturated cloth. When possible, combining an external treatment such as these with an internal treatment is your best approach to healing.

I use this often for my cat, who seems compelled to defend our territory from all other creatures. But it works great with the people folk, too. I sometimes place a slightly warm heating pad over the area to help draw out the abscesses. In my experience, the abscess opens, and you can lightly press the area to drain the fluid. You don’t want to allow it to close again until it is fully drained, so do not apply herbs such as calendula flowers or comfrey leaf afterward, because they will close up the tissue and trap the infection.

The most common cause of halitosis is bad teeth and gum conditions. Dental decay at the roots of the teeth may result in abscesses in the gums with foul-smelling, pus giving an objectionable odour to the breath. Even small holes in the teeth may provide a place where germs can multiply and release foul orders.

Measles is usually accompanied with slight fever and diarrhoea. In rare cases of great severity, high fever and delirium may occur. Complication which can arise from this disease include pneumonia, bronchitis, and ear abscesses. One serious but rare complication is the inflammation of the brain.
