    Hi Rodgy...Whenever I have to do emergency surgery, I first, ALWAYS use a sterile cutting tool. This can be done with a flame, or alcohol. Then, after the cut is made, I spray the cut with alcohol. Then, I put plant sulphur on the WET cut. This keeps any other bacteria from getting into the cut place. Hope this helps you in the future. Rodgy, Please go to your home page and turn on your P.M. ( private messages ) Or, ask Bruce to do it for you. Betty :-)

    I didn't have any plant sulphur so I used cinnamon powder to dress it. I didn't have any pure alcohol either would methylated spirits (ethanol) do the job

    Think I need to get some supplies!

    I haven't figured how to turn my PM's on yet but I'm working on it, lol.
