I have never seen sugar go off or bacteria grow on sugar I can remember
Interesting
It is a preservative

I just light up a cigarette, get a long ash by not flicking and use the ash as a clotting agent. But also heard honey or paprika used as well.

Sugar in concentrated solution, which would be the result of pouring granular sugar on a wound, causes cell water to be reduced due to osmotic pressure. Bacteria don't live without internal water.

Interesting... The ammonia in urine is also suppose to work on wounds when nothing else is available.. It is basically a piss on it cure...preferably your own or a friend that does not have HIV, etc etc. Used for 1000s of years all over the world though not so much in western civilization IMO..



I've used the technique many, many times on galls and other wounds on horses. Works wonders.

i remember the time I told a friend, "Here, hold my lead rope while I piss on horse." Sounded really, really weird.

I know when you mix white sugar with other things though it speeds bacteria growth..


I am not saying the study is wrong, god knows I don’t know the intricacies of bacteria growth lol..


But for example, bacteria grows better in sweet tea, rather than unsweetened tea.

Could be a special instance, but sweet tea grows bacteria WAY faster than unsweet tea.

Not sure if that wouldn't be airborne molds and yeasts and not bacteria. Sweet tea will turn funky and start to ferment, I've even seen it grow mold, but not sure about bacteria.

I got a vet dude that created his own blood clot for humans & animals alike! It's cheap too, only a limited supply. My buddy cut his leg with a chainsaw & it stops it quick as flash.

Urinate on it first.

To get it nice an clean.

Seriously...


True.
Bush medicine tried and tested.
Irrigates the wound removing foreign debris that causes infections.
Urine is sterile unless you are seriously ill with kidney disease.
In which case cuts are about the last of your worries.

I like to put turmeric, colloidal silver, molasses, baking soda and Balvenie 21 on my cuts. I regenerate like Wolverine with that stuff.


I prefer not to use 130 dollar Single Malts on my wounds, but i sure would have a glass lol

Yep and sugar causes the fermentation in alcohol, but pure sugar
As I said am not to sure
Just can't recall sugar on its own going off

In water, no doubt, on its own?

sugar mixed with salt is how you country cure ham.

But you have to be fast; you're racing the bacteria to get there first. They both act as desiccants, and that's part of the "cure" for ham.

I would put more trust in vinegar for live wounds, though.

Nope, But I would rather use honey and garlic for sure.

This would be a method of last resort.


This^

I use honey for my horses all the time if they have a cut. It works better than what I get from the vet.

Also, for rain rot or inexplicable skin issues, tea tree oil works even when nothing else does. Had a mare with some horrible skin thing and I about killed myself bathing her and powdering her with what the vet gave me for weeks. Got some tea tree oil and it was gone in less than 48 hours.

Tea Tree oil is some good stuff. I use it on cuts, new piercings, as an anti-dandruff/itch treatment and it even worked on a heat rash and yeast infection in the past.

To treat a wound with sugar . . . pour the sugar on the wound and apply a bandage on top. The granules soak up any moisture that allows bacteria to thrive. Without the bacteria, the wound heals more quickly.
www.bbc.com...


In vitro tests demonstrated that sugar inhibits bacterial growth. All three types of sugars had MICs ranging from 6-25% in the bacterial strains tested. The diffusion tests showed that strains were able to grow well in low concentrations of sugar but were completely inhibited in higher concentrations. The two granulated sugars were found to be slightly more effective than Demerara sugar, so the latter was excluded from the clinical pilot study. Twenty-two patients (20 inpatients and two outpatients) with sloughy or necrotic wounds were recruited into the clinical study. Two patients had MRSA and two had Staphylococcus colonisation at baseline. Blood sugar levels remained stable in the seven patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. All wounds were clean/debrided in a mean of 11.13 days. Pain and malodour reduced markedly. Patient and staff surveys revealed overwhelming support for the sugar therapy.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

My mother gave pest control advice to caretakers of large food stocks. She said the only food that didn't need protection was white sugar because nothing can live on white sugar alone. I hadn't heard about using it to treat wounds. Has anyone ever tried this?


To add: dirt into wounds. Dirt can be packing into a bleeding wound until med. help is found ie: hiking etc.

Dirt is basically sterile and will almost immediately stop bleeding.

Same thing with the inside pages of a newspaper as to being basically sterile.

use Honey!

Hydrogen peroxide, especially if there's an infection. Seriously HP just nukes bacteria, oxidises them into extinction. Also brilliant for tooth and gum infections, many years ago a dentist I saw for an extremely painful toothache put me onto it, any mouth issue I've had since I buy a bottle of 3%HP and dilute again by half. Use as a mouthwash(will foam like crazy, this is good)and every time issue has cleared in under 24hours.
(HP mixed 1/3 with hydrochloric acid is great for separating copper from gold. Reacts with copper forming copper II chloride that dissolves copper from gold/copper alloy)
