Ward Off Bacterial Skin Infections with Turmeric Powder

Have you ever had those pimple-like bumps on your armpit? Well, those aren't pimples but boils. It appears when staph bacteria infects hair follicles and skin tissue. The underarm area is prone to infection due to friction, shaving and sweat. While these boils are more common in people with suppressed immune systems, the painful bumps can also occur in healthy people, especially in the summer when staph bacteria thrive.

There is nothing to be alarmed though, because these boils disappear with home treatment. Simply soak a washcloth in warm salt water (add 1 tsp. of salt to 1 quart of water) and apply to the affected area for 10 minutes 3 times a day. And to prevent future boils, turmeric powder helps. Drink a glass of warm water mixed with 1 tsp. of turmeric powder daily. The powder is proven to ward off bacterial skin infections; thanks to its curcumin, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
