So glad it is clearing up, I was going to suggest Swat, have you seen or ever tried some stuff called Tri-Care by Farnum? I use it for every cut and scrap. It works as a barrier from flies and moisture plus it fights infection. Its a pain killer too so don't wipe your mouth or face after applying as it will numb your lips. Huh, did I say that? Would I be silly enough to stick my hand near my face after applying goo to my horses ouchies?
guess so. Anyway it works great.
