Carrots Boils carrots and mash them to a pulp and apply to foul ulcers or sores and it will sweeten them and often heal them. This is an old practice of the country people of England.

Charcoal Powdered wood charcoal was at one time, much in vogue as a dressing for foul ulcers or festering, gangrenous wounds. In the great European war powdered animal charcoal was extensively used for septic wounds. Whether better than vegetable charcoal is an open question.
