GREAT THREAD!! DA, scientists have recently experimented with honey and used it in place of modern topical wound treatments, just like the ancients did, with remarkable success. I'm glad that you mentioned "proud flesh". Horses generally heal very well with flesh wounds, but their bodies overdo it, and I didn't know about this when I bought my first horses.
DD, Great example of proper bandaging for a joint injury.
N_I, thanks for posting the before and after (I'm assuming the Avatar shows the after), to show newbies that even the worst flesh wounds can heal very well.
