Boil on forehead is causing face to swell

Hi, I have a boil on my forehead on the right side right on hairline. I picked at
it to get pus out but 3 hours later my forehead and right side of my face swelled
up. Its causing pressure on my eye (its starting to look shot) and on another
forum it was mentioned that it is dangerous because mrsa loves fatty
tissue...I'm really concerned. I've had this types of boils before, not this close
to my eyes or brain though and I've been taking turmeric powder with baking
soda. I don't have health insurance and I dont know if I should wait it out or if I
start to get signs of sepsis go to E.R.? So far it just feels like pressure and pain.
Before I picked at it the gland in front of my ear was swollen, now its more
swollen but all along from forehead to gland... Thanks for all your help..

Can u go to one of those local walk in clinics? The ones that stay open after
hours, would cost less than er And if they think u need er of course you'd go.

Please read the post right below this post (from Adrianne, Recurring Boils on Face) and you should find the answer you are seeking.

As strange as it may sound, crushed raw garlic in water will kill all staph o0n contact and no staph, including MRSA can survive direct contact with garlic water. Most importantly, MRSA cannot become immune to garlic.

Yes it will make you stink for a little while but if used properly (Soaking in a garlic bath is about a thousand times more effective than eating garlic.) it will work with a few applications. The sooner after the outbreak it is used, the better.

The main thing is to learn to tell good garlic from irradiated garlic, which has no health benefits. Checking out severl garlic posts on this website will help you better understand how to tell good garlic and how to use it.

Good luck to you.
