Pour the boiling water into a clean bowl and add the breadcrumbs. Cover with a plate that just fits inside the bowl and weight it down a little to compress the mixture.

When the bread has soaked up as much of the water as possible , strain off the excess water.The bread mixture should now be a soft pulp.

Spread the mixture about  1cm thick on a piece of clean linen/gauze that has been wrung out in hot water, and apply the poultice , while still warm to the affected area until it is cold.

Repeat as necessary.

It really works!!
