Fenugreek: This is a herbal cure for skin inflammation. Research has shown that fenugreek is an effective topical treatment for skin problems such as abscesses, boils, burns, eczema, and gout. Therefore, a simple skin inflammation remedy is the following:
Take a spoonful of fenugreek seeds and grind them into a powder.
Mix the ground powder with warm water.
Take a simple piece of clean cloth and soak it into the mixture.
Apply the soaked cloth directly onto the affected skin as a poultice.
Tea tree essential oil: Add to hot water as a compress for drawing boils and abscesses. Use every 2 hrs. NB Do not use tea tree oil internally as it is extremely toxic. NB Some essential oils are not safe for use during pregnancy. Consult your doctor before use.
