1.      Soak a wash cloth or gauze in one cup of hot water and 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt. Apply this compress 3x a day for 10-15 minutes to help relieve the infection.

2.      Apply tea tree oil in diluted form 3x a day. Add 10 drops of oil in ½ ounce of water to make it diluted form. Tea Tree oil is an effective antibacterial agent.

3.      Use Peppermint essential oil; apply this oil directly to the abscess. It also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

4.      Apply crushed garlic to the abscess as a poultice. Garlic has antibacterial properties

5.      Take 1000mg of Vitamin C with bioflavonoids to support immune system and also relieve/reduce skin inflammation.

6.      Take a Zinc supplement to support skin function and immune system.
