A. The most notable experience in my own case, was an injury at the base of the thumb muscle with a pair of scissors(industrial). It became infected and the tips of my thumb and index finger began to darken.
After going to the hospital, I was given antibiotics and told to return in 48hrs if things didn't improved or continued to worsen.
However, as I had no intentions of waiting around any longer, I decided to soak my entire hand in a CS and DMSO bath numerous times throughout the day, and found a radical change by nightfall. - the swelling had gone down considerably and the darkness at the finger and thumb tips had gone. I continued the treatment for two more days until my hand was back to it's normal size - the wound healed very quickly (dried up) without ever using antibiotics.
In other cases, I've made numerous bandages for surface cuts for our children by applying and replenishing CS on a gauze. Which is not a new concept as most bandages contain silver on their antiseptic strips, though I found the healing process to be quicker with the use of liquid CS.
In addition to this, we've used CS topically with success for eye infections on both humans and cats.
