GUEST,Helen, cookieless BS: Sore that wont heal (121* d) RE: BS: Sore that wont heal 09 Jan 10

Hi Kendall, sorry to hear you have yet more trials and tribulations to deal with, but I'm sure you'll beat this one, too.

The first rememdy I always try is tea tree oil, from Australia. I'm pretty sure it is available in the US. There are very, very few skin complaints that it doesn't seem to help. It is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. I dilute it with water if it is for something which might sting, by wetting a cotton ball and then putting a couple of drops of tea tree oil on the cotton ball. It clears most things up within a few days.

But another excellent natural healer, especially if the wound needs to be kept moist, is aloe vera. You can either split a piece of aloe vera lengthwise and place the gel sides down on the wound and then put a bandaid over it, or you can get the aloe vera gel in a tube from pharmacists (drug stores) or health food stores.

Both of these remedies would work well with each other, and with the honey, too.

Take care.
