I have one question - when you apply your poultices directly to a nasty wound like that, how do you clean the herbs out afterwards? Rinse with water? Also, how long do you leave the poultice on? Was there any worry that the comfrey would cause healing that was too quick and leave an abcess underneath? I've heard that can be an issue with comfrey used to heal deep wounds. Okay, that was more than one question...

? Drug from a horse?
? Infected small wound gets bigger?
? Attempted scalping by psychopath?
