What is a poultice of figs?


Isaiah had said, “Prepare a poultice of figs and apply it to the boil, and he will recover.” Isaiah 38:21
            A poultice is a mushy, creamy mass of material.  In this case, it was applied to alleviate soreness and inflammation.  God told Hezekiah to make a compound of figs and apply it to his boil.  There actually is some research and talks about the health benefits of figs.  But, remember, God can use anything to heal anyone.
