Boils and pimples on the inner part of the hips and thighs are very uncomfortable. These are often swollen and painful cluster-like boils in the hair follicles. Sweat retention and hormonal changes are known to be common causes of visible spots on your hips and inner thighs. Due to moisture, this problem is seen very much in the monsoon. What is this problem and how can it be treated? To find out, we spoke to Yoga Guru Dr. Mohan Karki. He is the founder of Holistic Healthcare Foundation and former HOD of Yoga and Nature Cure, Fortis Hospital, Noida.
Dr. Mohan Karki says, “To avoid this problem, we need to work in two-three levels. For this, it is very important to follow some safety rules. If your digestive system is not correct, there is a lack of hydration in the body or if the stomach is not cleaned properly, then the level of toxins in the body increases. This greatly increases the chances of getting an infection. The problem of boils is due to infection. In some cases, this happens due to the release of too much heat from the body. So, first of all, we should have the right information about the reasons for its occurrence.
Try natural things for boils
He further said, "To avoid this, take a little more water intake. Turmeric milk can also be drunk at night to remove bacterial infections. Aloe vera gel can be taken in the morning. Where there is a problem of boils, applying ice in the beginning i.e. at the first stage helps in drying it out. If that problem has increased a little more, then you can use turmeric to spread the infection more. You can apply a paste of turmeric and neem leaves to this. With the help of both of these, it helps to remove the dirt accumulated in the boils quickly.
Keep stomach clean
Dr. Mohan Karki says, “To avoid this problem, it is very important to clean the stomach. For this, you should take Triphala at night. Increase the amount of fiber in your diet. Include salads and boiled vegetables in your diet. By doing this the body can do its detox process properly. Also, take full care of hygiene as well. To keep yourself clean in the summer season, take bath twice a day. If all these rules are followed, then the problem of boils can be got rid of in a few days.
