Isaiah then said: “Bring a cake of pressed dried figs.” So they brought it and applied it to the boil, after which he gradually recovered.
Figs make a great natural remedy because they have anti-parasitic, anti-ulcer, antibacterial, laxative, and emollient properties. You’ll also find a cancer fighting compound called benzaldehyde in figs. According to the research, benzaldehyde has the ability to shrink abnormal growths.
When applied on skin, baked figs can cure inflammations like abscesses and boils.
A cake of figs was used as a medicinal poultice for King Hezekiah’s boil, and cakes of this type are still employed in this manner today in the Middle East.
