For open wounds, the biggest danger is potential infection from the environment, and the subsequent festering that will occur. If you want to speed the healing process and prevent festering, or eliminate an infection that is already present, garlic may be your best option. This powerful antioxidant, antiviral and antibacterial substance can make quick work of foreign pathogens. You can soak garlic cloves in water and then grind them into a paste. Apply the paste to completely cover the wound, and while the injury may itch or feel irritated, garlic is just doing its job – protecting against infections and healing you! Protection Status
