Then there was the reader last time who has suffered from bed sores for months. It's baffled the National Health Service, but has it baffled you? Not a chance. First up is a nurse from Germany, who provides a very detailed therapy that she has seen work on patients, including her own mother. Clean the wound with H2O2, and once the bubbling has stopped, use sterile dressings to clean the wound from the outside. Repeat if necessary before drying with a hair drier on a low setting. Then, put a cream called Mirfulan onto a sterile dressing, and entirely cover the bedsore. Put more sterile dressing on top, and fix with plasters. This should be done at least twice a day. To get oxygen to the sores, move a plastic bag, filled with water and a few ice cubes, around the wound's surrounding area until the skin is cold and reddish. Then warm the skin with a hairdryer on a low setting, and then repeat the process several times. Watch out for the areas around a bedsore, as these can also get quite numb. Gently rub Mirfulan into these areas, if necessary. Thank you, Nurse Gudrun. Another nurse writes in with a remedy that seemed to work, strange as it sounds. She used Bovril poultices on the sores, which she assumes is replacing lost protein and building the flesh layer. They need to be changed regularly. Another reader suggests manuka honey dressings, which are being tried out by some health authorities on burns. It's an idea that is also suggested by another reader, who recommends using organic raw honey. However, she recommends leaving the dressing on for several days because constant removal also takes away the growing skin with it. Alternatively, apply your own urine, or comfrey cream, or a paste of zinc, vitamin E and vitamin C. At the same time take 4gms, or 1 teaspoonful, of calcium ascorbate powder, three times a day. Also keep an eye on your diet, and increase your intake of good quality protein, such as organic red meat, or vegetable protein. Another reader suggests spraying colloidal silver on the sores all day.
