Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick! Fast! Effective! I often get boils in not so great places. But never have I had one that grew to be the size of a lemon! Holy Wow! What pressure and pain something can cause! I went to the local Walgreens trying to find some Icthamol, and PRID is what I came out with. Boy am I glad I did. Almost immediately after cleaning the area, and applying a liberal amount of the salve, the boil started draining! Yes, that quick! I changed the bandage right before bed, and when I woke up, the pain was gone, the lemon size boil was gone, and I feel so much better! I couldn't speak more highly of a product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really should invest in some goatskin gloves... I have four dozen rose bushes in my yard which are still blooming due to the weather being unseasonably mild. I was cutting a little bouquet to take inside and a tiny thorn not only stuck me but got imbedded in my thumb! It was deep enough that I couldn't see it but I sure could feel it. Luckily, I always keep some PRID in the medicine cabinet. After just a few days of treatment, that little sucker was sticking out far enough to grab with tweezers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use for cystic acne and in grown whiskers I started using the product last week. I am 43 and suffer from cystic acne, which typically compounds the ingrown whiskers I get - from a very heavy beard. PRID works awesome, imhad no idea there was even such a huge thing as drawing salve. Imhighly recommend the product as it seems to quickly bring cycsts and ingrowns to the surface - even in area that have been smoldering for months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied As I was looking for something to heal the boil that was located on my inner thigh, a pharmacist recommended PRID to me. The smell wasn't quite pleasant but once it was applied to the affected area, it started to drain the boil within 4 hours. I was so amazed by the results. The pain began to go away whenever I sat down after a day. Thanks to PRID, my boil was healed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had known about this years ago! I am very susceptible to blind pimples in awkward spots. I had a horrible one a few days ago, got bigger, very painful, and then to make it worse i tried to pop it. Ugh. Tried warm compresses, etc but nothing worked. Finally did some googling and this product came up. I was able to find at Wal-Mart (in first aid area). Applied as directed and within a few hours it drew out a ton of pus and blood. Pain gone! Blind pimple flat. Amazing...worked better and faster than i expected. I will be keeping on hand and using again. Ty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Infected ingrown hair on inner thigh Well it seems like I am not the only one who suffers from these things. I was browsing my local Walgreens for some supplies as I was planning on doing some minor surgery :) Yes, trying to dig out an infected ingrown hair is like doing minor surgery. I saw this product sitting on the shelf and picked it up, did a quick Google search and was blown away by all of the positive reviews. I thought why not, so I bought some. Applied it and around 1:00pm and covered it with a band-aide, by the time I got home from happy hour it was draining. For those of us who deal with these things on a regular basis the sight of puss escaping my body was a very satisfying feeling. This stuff works, and it feels pretty close to a miracle for me. My boil was about the size of a lima bean and was painful. I am on day two and it is completely flat with just a small amount of fluid still draining. I should be able to pull the hair out tomorrow. If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase it, JUMP! IT WORKS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells funny, but it works. I used this for an insect bite that wasn't getting any better after a few days. I rubbed some on, and covered it with a bandaid. It was 100% better the next day. It smells a bit, but the result was worth it. I think it's very similar to, or the same black salve we used back in the day. And I found it in the pharmacy section of the local supermarket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for helping to remove splinters I have a toddler who is 100% barefoot when the weather gets nice. She always seems to end up with splinters. Many we can remove in a warm bath, but she had 2 that were deeply embedded and not able to be removed. We used PRID for 2-3 days with a bandaid and it pulled them to the surface of the skin where we could remove with tweezers. One we thought we would end up at the doctors for, but PRID did the job for removing and healing both splinters. Very impressed. Would absolutely recommend.
