Home Remedies for an Abscess?

Answer

Home remedies for an abscess include soaking the abscessed area in a warm bath mixed with Epsom salts. A cloth soaked with warm water and Epsom salts can also be used. Warm compresses or warm heat applied to the abscess for thirty minutes several times a day is another good home remedy. The procedure should be continued until the abscess begins to drain. Aloe vera gel can also be massaged onto the abscessed area to promote healing.
