Boils or Infections
1 Part hog lard (pure lard at The store)
2 Parts quinine (from drug store)
Pure lard; more if needed
Sterilized square of old sheet
Use a teaspoon hog lard mixed with 2 teaspoons quinine. Use more pure
lard if needed to spread the salve easily.
Poulice: Sterilize a square cut from an old sheet with a hot iron.
Spread salve over entire square and put it over the red area on the
skin. Wrap loosely with a bandage to keep in place. Leave poultice on
infected area overnight. Apply a second poultice, if needed.
Boils: Put a piece of very fat bacon or salt pork on the boil. Tie or
strap it down. The infection will be drawn.
