What are the ways to draw out an ingrown hair boil naturally?
Ingrown hairs are those which have an unusual tendency of growing back into the hair follicle instead of growing out normally.
The following methods can be helpful in drawing out the ingrown hair boils naturally and safely:
First of all one should wear loose clothes until the ingrown hair boil gets healed.
One should also avoid trying to scrap the surface of the boil or trying to pull out the embedded hair.
If the ingrown hair boil occurs on the face then one can add half a teaspoon of salt to a cup of warm water. The quantity of salt should be reduced if the affected area is too small.
A cotton ball should be dipped into the solution and then applied over the boil. The salt mildly exfoliates and cleanses the affected area and draws out the ingrown hair boil.
In case an ingrown hair boil occurs on the body then one should add two cups of Epsom salt into the bath tub and soak the affected area in the water.
The following clay poultice method can be used to draw out the ingrown hair boil:
Before going to bed one should apply a poultice made out of clay and a few drops of eucalyptus oil over the ingrown hair boil and cover it with a sterilized band-aid. This helps in drawing out the ingrown hair along with the infectious pus, naturally. The clay should be washed off very gently the next morning.
A little amount of eucalyptus oil that has been diluted with either plain canola oil or almond oil should be applied over the ingrown hair boil. The infected area should be allowed to get dried.
This poultice should be applied till 2-3 nights consecutively after which one may notice a tiny hair drawn out on the surface of the skin along with the pus.
If the ingrown hair does not get drawn out by using this mild poultice then one should apply propolis liquid extract or colloidal silver on the ingrown hair boil to draw out the infection aggressively.
These natural remedies can help one in dealing with the ingrown hair boil effectively.
