Boils occur when bacteria or viruses get under the skin and duplicate, destroying the healthy tissue. The duplication produces a pustule, which is similar to cystic acne, only it doesn’t need a hair follicle or sebaceous gland to get down into the skin. Boils can be caused by simple irritations such as the rubbing of a belt on the skin or agitation on the side of a foot.Applying a silver gel topically one to four times a day can treat a boil. In some cases, you may want to cover the boil with a bandage. In addition, you will want to drink two teaspoons of structured silver liquid twice a day.As soon as the liquid and the gel come in contact with the bacteria, the boil growth will stop. Within about two hours you’ll feel inflammation reduction. You should see improvement of the boil within four hours.
