How should you treat a boil naturally that has become infected? I have been taking epsom salt baths and put apple cider vinegar. Will silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) work

In brief: Boils

The best way to treat a boil is to naturally cut it open and get the infected gunk out.
You can do that best by going to a dermatologist for incision and drainage.
