I had a nasty cat scratch on my leg which was getting worse and more swollen, day by day. I decided to dab the Hypercal lotion directly onto the gash and over a period of a few days it healed. Then a friends dog was bitten on the neck by another big dog. The gash turned nasty so I gave him the Hypercal and he gradually dripped it into the wound. This also healed well. He made a wash and used that also.
