Using water that is as hot as can be tolerated without scalding the skin, run a bath. Pour in one half to one cup of Epsom salt around the bottom of the tub. Soak in this bath for a minimum of thirty minutes each day until the boil is completely gone.
The hot water and salt mixture will help out infection that is within the boil. Make sure to wash the towels and clothes that the person with boils uses is washed properly and separately from other people’s clothing items. It is also recommended to wash out the tub using antiseptic cleaners before being used by anyone else.
