Castor Oil

In 2018, I had a ruptured ovarian cyst and surgery followed. I developed pain at the point of the incisions (4 initial incisions then the surgeon had to do the regular incision). I'm not sure how long that incision was as she was able to sew it up from the inside which amazed me. But the pain was like a pinching and it was long enough after that I assumed it was from adhesions.

I rubbed castor oil (put some in my fingers) and rubbed it on each place that hurt. In a few days, the pain was gone and hasn't returned.

Sulphur Cream

My hubs had trouble getting skin to heal so after two surgeries and cauterization we tried sulphur cream- you can get it at pharmacies or animal feed shops or amazon. Kills bacteria and allowed the skin to fully grow back. Good luck!!!

Also it works good on brown recluse spider bites.
