Skin infections

by Denise
( St. Joseph, MO)

I am diabetic and I developed an infection in one of my toes. The doctor asked me if I was diabetic and when I confirmed it

he said my toe had to go. I told him no, I had to go. I made some sachets out of 4 by 4 inch square pieces of a white t-shirt tied into a bag by a strip of t-shirt with equal amounts of calendula and comfrey. I heated them in a little water in the microwave then when they were cool enough to touch I wrung them out and applied them to the toe. They literally sucked the infection out bit by bit. I reheated them 2 or 3 times per session and did 3 sessions or so a day. After a few days the infection was gone. That was about 3 years ago and I still have my toe.
