1) Boil aloe leaves and take the fleshy part of the inside of the leaves to use as a poultice over wounds.
2) A most popular remedy to arrest bleeding in fresh wounds is to plug the site with some turmeric (haldi) powder. Quick lime can also be added to turmeric to hasten the effect.
3) The fine powder of the Black Plum (‘Jamun’ in Hindi) bark should be sprinkled on the fresh wounds for quick healing and to arrest bleeding.
4) Camphor (‘Kapur’ in Hindi) is powdered, pasted in ghee and applied over the affected area to relieve pain and inflammation.
5) Application of old coconut oil (not fresh oil) heals wounds and burns quickly.
6) Tie the ripe, clean leaves of banana onto the wounds, to clear it from pus foul odor. Change this dressing twice a day.
7) Make a fine paste of garlic cloves and apply on wounds to rid them of worms. Roll the paste in to a ball and leave it on the wound.
8) Make a decoction of the bark ‘Arjun’ (scientific name: Terminalia arjuna, ‘Maddi’ in Kannada) powder and wash wounds with it. This aids the healing process and speedens normalization of skin.
9) Paste the leaves of Bael (Bel) leaves without adding water. Apply this on pus-oozing wounds to get relief.

  1. Well, whatever the wound, the first thing you should do is wash it very thoroughly with soap, then use peroxide. You cannot overwash, MRSA is running rampant and you DO NOT want that. If you're dealing with a deep cut, DO NOT USE PEROXIDE!!! Use bacitracin for the first couple days, and then allow it to get some air. If you keep a wound bandaged, it takes much longer to form a scab and heal

    When dealing with minor wounds, keep the following guidelines in mind: Stop the bleeding by applying pressure using a gauze pad or clean cloth. If the bleeding persists after several minutes of applying pressure, get immediate medical attention. Keep the wound clean by washing the area with mild soap and water and removing any dirt. Dry the area
    gently with a clean cloth, and cover the wound with a protective bandage. Change the bandage at least once a day. If the wound becomes tender to the touch and red or oozes fluid, see your doctor. If your cut is more serious and the bleeding does not stop on its own or the cut is large, deep, or rough on the
    edges, try to stop the bleeding by applying pressure directly to the injury using a sterilized gauze pad or clean
    cloth. Maintain pressure on the wound until the bleeding stops. Then consult your physician. A tetanus booster may be required if you haven't had one for a while

  9. Keep the area clean, dry and free of debris and foreign matter. Superficial wounds often do no need to be bandaged, as the bandages may hinder the healing process. Deep wounds are bandaged at the discretion of medical personnel. Deep wounds that are bandaged should be changed daily, inspected for signs of infection, and re-bandaged with clean materials, unless the veterinarian's post-care directions indicate otherwise.

    Mince some onions and apply the paste on the wounded skin. Leave this on for an hour. After an hour wash off the paste and cover the wound for some time. The onion has properties that help it to remove the infection from the wound. However, it is important to throw the paste immediately after keeping it on for an hour. Do not touch any other part of your body with this paste.

    Garlic juice is another bactericidal remedy. However, garlic juice is quite hot and should never be used in its concentrated form. Mix the juice of 2-3 cloves of garlic with some water. Smear this solution all over the wound and cover with a cotton pad. This will help release the infection in the form of pus. Wipe the wound clean then and cover it with a soft piece of gauze.
