Vinegar is very important for the treatment of certain skin conditions, and while the smell may be unpleasant, its ability to eliminate boils is not. Vinegar is an astringent substance, so when it is applied to the boil, it causes it to shrink and curl in on itself, making it more difficult for it to receive the nutrients that it needs. If the boils are caused by a bacterial infection, such as Staphylococcus, than vinegar is equally effective. Soak a small sheet of paper towel in vinegar, apply it to the area with boils, and then cover that with a bandage. In less than 2 days, the boil will completely dry up and simply fall off your skin.
