We're going to make a poultice.
Here's what you'll need:
A clean glass jar (a mason jar will work)
Vinegar (apple cider or regular)
An eggplant (aubergine)
What you'll do:
Wash the eggplant and pat dry.
Leaving the skin on, cut the eggplant in pieces and pack into a glass jar.
Pour vinegar over the eggplant covering it completely.
Seal the jar and leave on a counter for 3 days.
Shake the jar regularly.
AFTER 3 days, strain some of the liquid in a small cup or bowl.
Saturate a cotton ball or gauze in the poultice to the infected area at least three times daily until the skin is healed.
You can leave put this in the refrigerator. Some people like to use it straight out of the fridge, as it's cool and soothing when applied.
According to some accounts this works also for skin cancer (melanoma) and acne.
