Boil? Make a poltice from egg yolk & salt

Submitted by suzy

Make a pollis by taking an egg yolk and salt and mixing together to make a thick paste. Pack onto the boil and cover. It may take several times but it will pull the head out. Change regularly.

umm, make sure not to put egg stuff on open cuts and open anything, it'll make it infected
try it....its wonderful Comments By: anon on 2009-02-03
I was raised on a farm in west texas and we as kids got really dirty. We used salt and egg poultices for facial bumps and boils...it is FANTASTIC. I am now 59 years old...and still have and never have had any blemishes. We used this at least once a week just as a precaution, and none of the 3 of us has ever had skin (on our faces) problems. It is a heck of a lot cheaper than otc "remedies"
