A boil is an acute inflammation of the subcutaneous layers of skin or of a gland or hair follicle. The deeper tissue inflammation is so severe that blood clots in the vessels and forms a core that causes acute pain. The core is either expelled or reabsorbed. Localized infection with staphylococci is usually involved. Boils are sometimes a symptom of diabetes. In addition to a high potency multi, VIR™ helps to support the immune system.
