Know the remedies and ointments to treat furuncle

Boils usually resolve themselves and the use of antibiotics in any situation of infection with Staphylococcus aureus (the main bacterium that causes the infection) only contributes to the development of resistance in the bacteria.

However, in some cases, antibiotic treatment may be necessary. These are the most effective drugs against the bacteria:

  • Bactrim;
  • Ciprofloxacin ;
  • Amoxicillin + Potassium clavulanate ;
  • Clindamicina(Anaerocid).


  • Nebacetin ;
  • Furacin.
