GREW UP USING THIS SALVE FOR SPLINTER REMOVAL & BOILS THAT PLAGUED ME AS A CHILD AND NOW FOR SMALL INFECTIONS, BOILS AND INGROWN HAIRS UNDER ARMS ETC.

TECHNIQUE: CLEAN AREA WELL WITH HOT SOAPY WATER, APPLY HOT COMPRESS, DRY AREA AND PUT PRID SALVE ON THE AREA THICK LIKE PEANUT BUTTER AND PUT A LARGE BANDAID OR EVEN FIRSTAID TAPE WITHOUT GAUZE OR ANYTHING(UNLESS THE WOUND IS OPEN OR BROKEN SKIN OR DRAINING FLUID, AS GAUZE SOAKS UP A LOT OF SALVE INITIALLY...COVER THE WHOLE SURROUNDING AREA AND GO TO BED. IN AM SHOWER CLEAN AREA AND REPEAT ...USUALLY CAUSES THE BOIL TO BURST ON ITS OWN WITHIN 3-4 DAYS, BEGINS TO DRAW OUT THE INITIAL PAIN & INFLAMMATION WITHIN 24 HOURS.YES IT CAN BE MESSY, BUT YOU CAN EXPECT AT LEAST $75 FOR A DR TO LOOK AT IT OR MORE TO LANCE OR REMOVE IT SURGICALLY. IT IS PARTICULARLY GREAT FOR CHILDREN WHO CANNOT TOLERATE STINGING CREAMS OR OINTMENTS BECAUSE IT DOES NOT HURT OR BURN WHEN IT IS APPLIED (EXCEPT FOR HAVING TO TOUCH THE BOIL WHEN PUTTING ON SALVE), INGROWN HAIRS AND RAZOR BUMPS CAN EASILY CAUSE A SCARE TO A WOMAN WHO GETS THESE HARD LUMPS UNDER THE ARMS, BUT THIS STUFF USUALLY CAUSES THEM TO DISAPPEAR OVERNIGHT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO COVER THE BOIL/WOUND OR INFECTION COMPLETELY AS THIS SEEMS TO CAUSE SALVE TO SWEAT IT OUT. MOST IMPORTANTLY BE SURE TO USE A CLEAN SWAB OR INSTRUMENT TO GET SALVE OUT OF TIN AND NOT USE FINGERS WHICH COULD CONTAMINATE REST OF SALVE IN THE TIN. WE USE A PLASTIC DISPOSEABLE KNIFE OR SPOON TO APPLY OUR SALVE AND THEN THROW IT AWAY. YES IT IS SMELLY ICHY MESSY AND CAN STAIN YOUR CLOTHES BUT IT WORKS IF YOU FOLLOW PROPER TECHNIQUE AND CAN SAVE A LOT OF PAIN. TIME, AND MONEY IF YOU HAPPEN TO CARE ABOUT THAT. IF I COULD GIVE IT SEVEN STARS I WOULD!!!!

Based on the reviews, I bought this to draw out the boils that my daughter develops under her arms. We have had some success with it but I think what has worked better is this ointment I used to be able to buy locally called Draw Out Salve, which was dirt cheap and even smellier and gooier than the Prid ointment. Although based on the reviews of Prid and the success others have had using it for everything from pimples to bee stings and splinters there is definitely a place for the Prid ointment in my medicine cabinet arsenal.

    This salve was useful for healing an area that should have been healing better, but was getting red around the injury. A bandaid was useful in keeping the area covered. As soon as I applied this I felt better and my injury began healing well. (I've been looking for something like this since I could no longer get Good Samaritan Salve - which is no longer available.)

      Comments about Smile's PRID Homeopathic Drawing Salve, 18 g:

      What I really like about the product is that it works. I get the WORST ingrown hairs in my bikini area due to waxing. They are big and they're so painful. This might sound kind of gross but they turn into this sac that's just filled with blood and pus. I've had this stuff for a while but never really used it properly. Recently I had this awful sac and I could feel it under the skin. Well I applied Prid every night and it was almost like the Prid almost brought the sac to the top of my skin and kind of... drained it. I don't know how to explain it but this is the only thing that works to get rid of ingrown messes! The only con: it stains my underwear.

        I put it on ingrown hairs, boils, cysts, splinters, pimples, cover with a bandage and they disappear overnight. This stuff works great!

            Toe fungus that isn't responding with OTC, the salve helped to draw the fungus out, to show me where on my feet the fungus is to treat, and to help with the swelling (knobs) around the toe joints that must be fungus as well that blistered, then popped, and are healing well. Made the feet itch more but in the end well worth it to destroy the fungus.

              My husband is an auto mechanic, constantly working around metal and metal shavings. It seems he comes home weekly with a sliver of metal embedded in his hands, arms and even face! As anyone who has ever had a splinter knows, that will never begin to heal unless you get that splinter out!

              It doesn't smell the best (kind of pine tar-ish) but isn't overly offensive. I put a good size glob on his sore and put a bandage over it. After leaving it on all night and all day, he took it off the next day at home from work... And surprise, surprise there was a little metal sliver on the bandage pad and the sore began to heal nicely! We were both impressed! A definite must have!
