Research on Onion Cures

As is mostly the case, some studies have found their action to be ineffective, while others found that they may act as an anti-inflammatory agent. As a personal note I would like to include my own experience with onion as a syst remedy. I remember when I was a kid, My mother had cured a syst on my brother's back by boiling an onion cutting it in half and applying directly over the syst after cooling it to a tolerance level of course. "It matures the syst" she used to say and as a matter of fact the boil matured in couple of hours the pus drained and the pain was gone.

Please do remember that consulting a doctor is always a good idea as I am not a doctor.
