My Mom read something in an herbal book (she's a nut for non-medical cures, seriously tho, they work SO much better than anything perscription, and are A LOT cheaper) that said that the honey killed all the bacteria and healed the skin and this and that and the other and it said if you covered your boo boo with honey and put a band-aid or surgical tape over it, it would be gone in the morning. I've been using toothpaste a lot and it's REALLY dried out my skin. I'm doing the Honey thing now. I don't know if it'll work or not, but I've got a lot riding on this. So I'll let you know!
