My son complained that he thought he had a boil on his forehead. His wife and I searched for home remedies on the internet. The one I saw the most said to secure a piece of raw bacon fat to the area before going to bed. Comments said that the boil would "erupt" ( the best word that I can think of) or come to a head by morning. While we couldn't convince him to put raw bacon on his head he did agree to try a slice of cucumber to see if it would have a drawing effect. He said it was so cold it gave him a headache, but we didn't hear him complain of the boil again!
