Thorn Update



Went searching on the web and after reading at "Garden Web" http://www.gardenweb.com/ about others who have had this same thing happen to them and some of their horror stories. I then went searching for home remedies as a last resort before making that dreaded trip back to the doctor.

This is working!!!! My prayers are being answered. I`ve made a poultice of dry mustard and baking soda, slapped it on thick and wet and covered it with a big bandaid. Before that I soaked it in an extremely warm mixture of water and lots of Epson salts. When I woke up this morning the pain had subsided a lot as had some of the left over swelling. I`ve been doing the same all day while doing my hair and baking chocolate chip cookies.
I`m keeping my fingers crossed.
