Natural Remedies for Abscess

An abscess is formed when pus accumulates in a tissue, organ, or confined space in the body due to infection. Infections are the most common human disorders and can be produced by bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.

A boil is an external abscess. The area may become swollen, inflamed, hot, red and tender. It may result in fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, fever and chills. The material inside it consists of living and dead white blood cells, dead tissue, bacteria and/or toxins, which need to be eliminated by the body. An acute abscess generally responds to treatment within a few days. A chronic abscess is more resistant, the damage is more widespread and takes longer to treat. As with acne, high blood sugar levels are usually present. Avoid sugars.
