Last week I scraped my shin, which resulted in two small, shallow cuts. They scabbed over quickly, but I accidentally knocked those scabs off twice (once drying off after a shower, once hitting my shin on the bed frame in the middle of the night).
I kept the area clean and moist, but yesterday I noticed that one of the cuts had a red ring around its edges. It didn't hurt, but sure looked irritated. Looking for a solution, I turned to the internet to find out what to do. I learned that there are quite a few natural remedies-honey, chamomile, aloe vera, garlic, coconut oil, and tumeric paste. I didn't have most of them in the house, but the spice cabinet did have a jar of tumeric. I decided to give it a try.
This morning the area looked a little less red. I repeated the process, and
after lunch it was even less red. I'm optimistic that if I continue for the
recommended three days my shin will be completely healed.
