Dry mustard poultice
As a child, I got a piece of stick from an old wooden fence stuck in leg. My mom made a dry mustard poutice and applied it. The directions on the mustard can said to leave it on for a maximum of 10 minutes for adults. Grandma came in the door to visit and my leg was long forgotten until about 3 in the morning when the pain became unbearable. I removed it and the peice of stick was in it but the veins in the leg were drawn to the skin surface and the whole thing was blistered. I am now 49 yrs of age and the veins are still at the surface. BE CAREFUL WITH THE DRY MUSTARD POULTICE!!!!
