Boils come from to many toxins in your body or not being as healthy as you should. Start drinking more water and possibly change your diet.

Boils are skin infections usually caused by a bacteria. These infections form pockets in the skin which are filled with pus, a fluid that includes bacteria, and infection-fighting white blood cells. Boils commonly occur on the face, neck, groin and buttocks.

To avoid boils follow the simple steps:

1.) Keep the area clean and dry.

2.) Avoid wearing tight clothes.

3.) Wash the affected area with an anti-fungal bacteria soap.

4.) Apply moist heat on the affected area for 20-30 minutes (2-3 times a day).
