Well, I made the appropriate change to my Simple Garlic Poultice as Tom H. suggested by putting aloe around the healthy tissue first. My experience is that the aloe is not thick enough to block the garlic so I ended up trimming the garlic down so that it covered ONLY the spot in question (approx 5mm). I now have a sore where the garlic burned the spot away (it took approx 8 days). I have been keeping aloe on it for the past 2 days. I only have 2 concerns now - (1) that I got it all and (2) that it heals without an ugly dark scar.
Any suggestions Tom? I'd really appreciate your continued input.
