..absorbs the excess fluid...blood..
keeps a lot of the gore off of your clothing...
goes a long way in preventing the formation of the
tough "resin" scabs...that I find must be removed
in order for the lesions to heal.
..."scabs" made up with talc stay MUCH softer than
the resinous scabs..and can be cleaned off several
times a day...with little effort.
..i observe that talc does nothing to discourage fiber
growth..they seem to groooove on the stuff...growing
with great vigor and enthusiasm.
...kinda like Miracle-Gro for mOrgs.
