View Full Version : Cut that won't heal - help please!
12-27-2007, 02:12 PM
Hi, I have a cut on my wrist that won't heal for a couple of months now. It started as a patch of eczema, but the skin cracked and it just won't heal.
Partly my fault as it itches like made so I have scratched it and made it worse, but also as it is on my wrist it cracks and bleeds when I move. I've found getting it wet makes it worse, however it is really hard to bath or shower and not get it wet, even with waterproof coverings!
A friend who is a nurse said I should take anti-biotics as she suspects it might be infected, although that might just be the eczema flaring up. However I am reluctant to take them that as I had a course recently anyway and then got a yeast problem.
Any other ideas about what I could use that will help it heal and clear any infection?
all help gratefully received :)

Try some colloidal silver if you think it is infected or plain old hydrogen peroxide! I just sliced my thumb WIDE OPEN on christmas (it was BAD) we treated it with hydrogen peroxide and fresh aloe gel (straight from the plant) and it is already almost completely healed. Eczema is a strong sign of detox ~ I have it on my face right now (lovely) so treat yourself to some green smoothies and wheat grass if you can. Good luck!!

There's a product from the Dr. Christopers product line, called BF&C. (stands for bone, flesh and cartlidge) actually now that I think of it, I believe they've changed the name to Complete Bone and Tissue ointment. Anyway, it's great stuff. I've used it for years with my husband and four kids. Cuts, scrapes, bruises, dry skin, sunburns, well we put it on just about everything. If you get some be sure to keep it in the fridge (it has olive oil in it). As small bottle will last you a VERY long time. They are very particular about their ingredients, all natural, organic or wild crafted. Many times when the wound is cracking and bleeding, this product will start healing in the deepest part of the crack and before you know it, it comes back together and is all better. Put it on several times a day...you can get it at about any health food store, if not, they're on the web. Ouch...I hope it gets better, and the other message was right, watching out for infection is always very important.
When things don't heal, I use colloidal silver and then use comfrey ointment. The brown stuff not the green, it is stronger. I helps to grow new skin faster. I had a verybad scald on my arms when a freshly made hot water bottle burst, and after having cooled it, I applied comfrey ointment regularly and it healed very quickly. Also, a sore that wouldn't heal, healed quickly with comfrey ointment. It stains, and is like vaseline in texture, :) so you will have to cover it with something.

There's been a lot of times I've tried alternative practices and was surprized and disappointed it didn't work. Reiki, for example. Anyway, I just wanted to share this healthy skeptic has had remarkably good results with healing cuts with visualization exercises. Just very recently, too. I was carrying a big, honking meat cleaver in my cluttered truck along with coconuts for a tasty little snack and managed to badly gash my wrist with it. My nurse friend freaked out, telling me to go get stitches, but we bandaged it up and I kept focusing on the cut a lot for several days, sending in light from my third eye; I could feel it tingling when I would do this exercise. It's mending remarkably well.

Thankyou for all your replies. I didn't have any colloidal silver to hand and I was away for Christmas and New Year so unable to order any, so I sprayed it with hydrogen peroxide which was available and it fizzed up alarmingly but didn't hurt.
I also had some silver backed plasters so put a new one on every day. It did improve but not completely.
I went to see my healer yesterday and she did some magic on it and now the cut has closed completely. The skin needs a bit of time to renew but I am happy.
I'm going to buy the things you suggested so that I have them on hand if I ever need them.
thanks again for your advice.

You may not be getting enough protein in your diet.
Our body doesn't require but a fraction of the protein the average American on a SAD takes in to function optimally, but there is such a thing as too little protein in the diet. One of the main symptoms of protein deficiency is wounds that do not heal. Make sure and get plenty of greens, sprouted grains, and nuts and see if that helps.

I was going to say cayenne pepper should stop it bleeding, and raw unpasteurised honey would heal it.
I burnt my arm on a lamp bulb last week and it blistered and got infected but honey got rid of the infection in a day and healed it in a few days.
