    I always heard honey, organic or regular, was the way to go after it is cleaned up.

    Turmeric is great antibiotic and antibacterial for treating wounds.

    Oral solution-fine. Your body filters out a remarkable amount of stuff when going from one end to the other. As a wound dressing, I've never heard of using sugar though I have no basis to deny it's effectiveness. Intravenous? IMHO, you're only asking for trouble.
    Hey Doc, my old man swears by dried tobacco for stopping bleeding and keeping the wound clean. What do you think?

    I'm not a doctor and I've never played one on TV.

    But, my grandmother would take a wad of chewing tobacco, chew it up and take it out and put it on bad cuts.

    The bleeding would stop and it always healed without a problem.

    YMMV.

    I too have heard of this. It also relieves pain to a small degree, I have heard.
