A couple months ago I mentioned that I was starting to use something new to try to speed healing of that lovely little troubled spot. I had read that Emu Oil works wonders for many people. I’m here to weigh in on the subject.
Yes, it works. It speeds tissue growth. The problem for me was that it speeds tissue growth in the wrong places. Instead of allowing the skin to grow over the wound from the edges of separation, it grew new tissue in the middle of the wound that actually IMPEDED wound closure. So now we’re doing wet to dry bandages. I’ve explained that process in a previous post.
My conclusion: Emu oil works but you’ve got to be aware of precisely how it is applied.
