Yesterday my toe nail caught itself on something and flipped itself backwards, so I had to tear it off - extremely painful.

Later on the pain was getting really bad and the toe was starting to swell and change colour. Eva had told me that eucalyptus oil would help with the pain, swelling and would also fight any infection.

So I got nurse Audball to clean it with a sterile swab thingy, then she applied same gauze soaked in eucalyptus oil and wrapped a small bandage around it.

As soon as the eucalyptus oil touched the raw open flesh, the pain immediately stopped, I was expecting to be in agony but the exact opposite happened. So I went to bed with my toe protected in this oil and fell asleep. I woke up this morning to find that my toe has returned to normal size, the colour is back to normal and all pain has gone completely. I know for a fact that if I hadn't done this, I would have been on the phone to the doctors today and possibly even visiting the accident and emergency department.

Big big thank you to Evastar for her advice and a big thank you to Audball for dressing up in her nurses outfit and applying the fix.

We've actually got a few medical-ish people on DW.

We've got nurses, pharmacists, new age/alternative practitioners, physio therapists, you name it - we've got it!

I wonder if we have any Doctors!?

I think posting it publicly is better (as long as you aren't a soft sh*te who rigged your Facebook up) so it helps more people...

Witchy, you can try that Reiki DVD out now with your new found white witch faith; you should change your Username to WhiteWhichy ;)

Took your advice Eva and told my mate about your miracle cure. I said put some eucalyptus on it and you will be fine in the morning.He phoned me up an hour later and said he had no eucalyptus so he used a polo mint instead. took him over an hour to get his knob out of the hole.
