This study investigated the antibacterial property of the Cayratia trifolia L. alcoholic leaves extract (CALE) to boils caused primarily by Staphylococcus aureus. Microbiological tests like culture, Gram's stain and coagulase test were employed to isolate and identify the bacteria. CALE at concentrations of 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% were utilized to determine whether they could produce significant inhibition of the growth of the boil-causing bacteria. Results of the susceptibility test showed that the CALE concentrations exhibited antibacterial property with 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% recorded a mean zone of inhibition of 18.33 mm, 20.67 mm, 23.67 mm and 25.67 mm, respectively against a control drug. In conclusion, 75% and 100% CALE treatments possess a comparable antibacterial property as an alternative remedy for boils.
