Turmeric is a blood purifier and has antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties. Take one teaspoon turmeric powder and add it to a glass of warm water. Drink this thrice a day.
Turmeric powder can also be applied over the boil, which speeds up the healing process. For fresh boils, take a few dry roots of turmeric and roast them. Dissolve the ashes in a cup of water and apply over the affected portion. This enables the boils to ripen and burst.
