Warm Compress

The easiest way to quickly get rid of a boil on your inner thigh is to use heat applications. Warm compresses applied on the affected skin increase blood circulation and allow the antibodies and white blood cells to fight the infection faster.

Soak a cloth in warm water, squeeze out the excess water and press it over the boil.
Do this repeatedly throughout the day until the boil erupts and the pus drains out.
Clean the area thoroughly and apply a medicated ointment to prevent any further infection.

Onions have antiseptic properties that help fight skin infection and speed up the healing process. When the juice of the onion comes in contact with the infected area, it acts as an irritant as well as an antimicrobial agent. This helps draw out the heat from the boil and promote eruption. It also helps reduce inflammation and alleviates pain.

Cut a fresh onion into thick slices.
Put the onion slices on the boil and cover them with a cloth.
Change the onion slices every 2 to 3 hours until the boil erupts and drains.
