[QUOTE=Dr. Bork Bork;890986]Get yourself some tea tree oil (melaleuca), it should help with the skin damage. I used it during my 2nd degree burn last month and it really helped on so many levels.[/QUOTE]
Isn't that the truth!!!! Tea tree oil is a great gift from mother nature.
I had a tick bite and a softball size horribly red area developed with tick bite in the middle.
Middle of my shoulder blades so DH had to doctor it; just used cortisone at first, it even scared him,
hurt like hell for a couple of days. (he had taken the tick off me and we think he didn't do it "right"' he felt real bad about it and was very concerned, telling me I needed to go to doc)
I remembered I had some tea tree oil, diluted it down with some cucumber toner I had,
within 8 hrs redness went away, a zillion tiny scabs it felt like came up but all soreness went away,
couple of days later and it was gone and skin smooth gain.
Salt water is great for soaking to clean wounds.
Since no one else is going to say it, I will...............dumb ass!
I second the gangrene option. No softballing here!
thanks you sons of bitches
update: i am doing well, thank you. today i was walking with regular form, but in the flippy floppers. will test barefoot in 3 more days. the skin, it is building and the flap looks poised to fall, maybe overnight.
i just want to thank all the well wishers and also all the playa hataz, ain't no thing, black.
Running barefoot: primal
Running barefoot while drunk/high: erm...
Dado... you're my hero. Silly. But heroic.
update: what did i say, 10 days? it's gotta be around 10 days now and i just took a walk/run to the bodega, barefoot.
the skin flaps fell off and now i am healed.
you know, at first, i thought it was the end of the world and that my foot would be cut off, but today, i see, this was no big deal.
the healing powers of the human system are amazing. i mean, one minute i'm gushing blood, skin is dangling, and the next minute i'm over here, walking barefoot.
so good to be back with the Good People.
