Black Drawing Salve Boils
Used drawing salve prid on boil located on my right buttock . How long until the boil bursts on its own?
Do I need to go to the ER to get this ingrown hair lanced or will a home remedy black drawing salve do the trick?

If it needs to be lanced an emergency room is a way expensive place to have it done. Try to find a private doctor or clinic you can afford because this is a really simple procedure. Of course sometimes we have no choice but to use an ER. ...Read more

I have a extremely tiny splinter in my hand. Will my body dissolve it if the drawing salve doesnt draw it out?
Splinters: Splinters of wood do not dissolve in the hands or the feet; splinters tend to wall themselves and can form small abscesses. Try to soak the hand in warm water with salt and a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. See if it loosens it up. Disinfect a tweezer and try to remove it. If it is too deep, you may have to see a dermatologist or your primary to remove it. The body can't dissolve this. ...Read more
