    That sounds like it would BURN (no pun intended)! I never want to try that.

    Has anybody ever heard of this?
    Growing up in Sri Lanka my mum used kerosene for all sorts of wounds and it worked like a treat .

    If kerosene were a valuable wound treatment doctors and hospitals would use it.

    Yep..in my youger days..when I was really really young, it would be used as a emergency antiseptic, from nails in your foot to dog bites, then off to the hospital for the ATT shots..
    I'm a Gramp who is not computer savvy, give me a slab and the rock ages tablet..I will do fine!
