Healing Wounds

My daughter has an ulcer on her ankle from getting injections for spider veins. The doctor told her he could remove the ulcer, and she would have only a couple of stitches. She ended up with 17, and he took out too much skin from the ankle. The last one is 1 year old this month.


She is going to a wound care clinic, but it is not healing, her foot and leg swell up 2 times normal size, she is not diabetic. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Strangely enough, try honey. It has been getting a lot of attention lately as a way to help stubborn wounds to heal. There is an article that you can read here:


Google "honey wound care" to find more articles about honey to treat wounds.

Powder Alum is a very good healer, I keep it all the time & put it on everything that hurts. Put 1 teaspoon in a cup of water, apply it to the cut 3 or 4 times a day. Sounds like she needs to go to a Dr. for the swelling, she might have a blood clot, that is very bad news if she does. I had this with a broken leg at the ankle, almost died. Get the alum at a drug store in the back, if they don't have it ask them to order some. 3 oz to a bottle is very reasonable. Good luck and let us know how she is doing, ok?
