George Weasley: "Half our year had minor breakdowns coming up to OWLs. Tears and tantrums… Patricia Stimpson kept coming over faint…"
Fred Weasley: "Kenneth Towler came out in boils, d'you remember?"
George Weasley: "That's 'cause you put Bulbadox powder in his pyjamas"
Fred Weasley: "Oh, yeah, I'd forgotten… hard to keep track sometimes, isn't it?"
— Fred and George talking about their O.W.L. year[src]

Bulbadox powder was a joke product that caused the victim's skin to break out in boils. Fred and George Weasley snuck some into Kenneth Towler's pyjamas during their O.W.L. year.[1]

Coating a cauldron with Bulbadox powder before brewing the Cure for Boils potion could make the cauldron explode.[2]
