I read that Pine tar has been shown to be antipruritic, anti‐inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal. These properties make pine tar suitable for the topical treatment of eczema, psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and other dry, itchy, flaky or inflamed skin conditions. It was used in the 5th Century and is still available over the counter. Can also be used on the face and sensitive areas. Very interesting.

And as you all know, I'm a supporter of my coal tar mix but maybe it's time for a change. Maybe I should try the pine tar and see how it goes? Luckily they do sell it in SA so I'm lucky.

I tried it but sadly it didn't touch it, but, I think if the p is mild or a small area it would work. Mine at the time was huge, inflamed, too itchy for my own good had to see the quacker , sorry I meant Dr. Having said that, If I had a small area that's not so sore I would def try again.

Hello Michelle, I've not used pine tar but I have taken Diamond G turpentine with sugar lumps to rid my body of parasites. Have a look on youtube, turps is from pine trees. 15 minutes after taking it for the 1st time I had a motion and I couldn't believe what I saw. You know in the alien film when it pops out of the victims chest, well my poo was full of tiny versions all with their heads popped. You can not take this stuff unless you poo frequently because the dead parasites need to come out fast. If they don't they will give off ammonia which is very toxic and not want you want hanging about in your bowel.

Oh my. Pon, you're scaring me. 😲. I know we should cleanse our body from the inside out but oi, imagining tiny dead parasites with their heads popped is scary. I think I'll try the pine tar lol. But thank you for sharing. It's very interesting hearing all these different types of treatments. I'm sure P sufferers are the most healthiest people on earth 😁

Madmum, I think i'm going to try it as I only have it on my ankles and not very severe. It's a big patch though but I'll try it. As long as it's not like an acid kind of thing then its okay. I still need some skin to show my man. :)
Will do John. I'm googling to see if my local chemist stock it. : )

I have been using Pinetarsol in bath and shower. Very soothing when P is itchy and sore.

Lumbermen who get injured in the field use pine 🌲 tar directly from a pine tree for treatment.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Yes Clint and I've read that it does work very well. It's worth a try so I'm going to see what I can get from my local pharmacy. Might work better than my mixture I'm using at the moment. :)

Hi Michelle...let me know if you can get it here , I will also check Dischem & Sparksport pharmacies.....


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

I will Ellen. I'll check tomorrow and let you know. Maybe my P needs something different as I've been using my mixture for more than 10 years now. I still works very well for my small term P but I'm concentrating now on the Long term one's as well. :)
