Bag Balm is recommended for animal use, but is quite widely used by humans too. For minor abbrasions rashes etc, something that at bottom just wants soothing.
It appears to be mostly vaseline plus 0.3% Hydroxyquinoline sulphate. The vaseline may be all that's really needed for minor injuries.
The aroma will be a matter of taste, but pleases me, and BB seems not given to causing an allergic reaction (in me at any rate), which can be a problem with some preparations.
Prices vary (a lot, 8oz costing little more than 1oz is not particularly unusual) so shop around if you decide to try it.
On the whole though I tend to agree with Sen's dad, lots of matters cure themselves if left to do so.
