An abrasion is a superficial damage to the integrity of the skin and mucous membranes. The abrasion must be treated with a disinfectant solution such as hydrogen peroxide, furacilin solution, a weak pink solution of potassium permanganate. It is not recommended to wash the abrasion with water - this can lead to its infection. For the rapid healing of abrasions, traditional medicine uses infusions or oil tinctures of medicinal plants.
- To heal abrasions, prepare the following ingredients:
- - St. John's wort;
- - calendula;
- - celandine;
- - unrefined sunflower oil.
St. John's wort oil is effective for healing abrasions. Fill 2/3 a half-liter jar with St. John's wort flowers and add sunflower oil to the top of the jar. Place this jar in a boiling water bath for 40 minutes, then turn off the heat, but do not remove the jar from the water until the water cools in the saucepan. After 2 hours, remove the jar with the composition from the pan and leave to infuse for 3 days. John's wort oil is useful to lubricate any abrasions 3-4 times a day. So they heal quickly and do not leave marks.
Fill the jar to the "shoulders" with calendula flowers, fill with sunflower oil and place in the sun for 10 days. This oil perfectly heals any abrasions, after which there are no traces.
Celandine has a similar effect. It, like calendula, can be prepared with oil, although you can use an aqueous infusion of celandine for this. To prepare such an infusion, take 1 tablespoon of dry celandine, pour a glass of boiling water and leave for 30 minutes. With this infusion, wash the abrasion 2-3 times a day, without wiping anything.
