I have been having symptoms of bv or a yeast infection so I tried the method of a hydrogen peroxide douche. Could I get an air embolism from this?

Not much: Not much, it is used to clean breast feeding implements, pumps, etc. I would think taking too much of anything is bad for you, but people use it to gargle with, then spit it out, but I'm sure still swallow some. Read more
This would not...: Be a good primary treatment for eczema because of his drying effect. I will have patients use it sometimes in the ear canals where there is a fungal infection and also eczema.

Won't help: Boils will not improve with the use of topical treatments. They need to be soaked frequently with hot salt or boric acid in water until they come to a head and drain. If they become large they may require surgical incision and drainage. Sometimes antibiotic pills that cover staphylococcus aureus, the usual bacterial cause of boils, need to be given as well.
