JocelynM Posted January 8, 2013 Share Posted January 8, 2013 After trying uncounted multitudes of things to treat those nasty little ulcers at the corners of my fingertips I developed the following recipe/procedure. You can get these ingredients at most pharmacies and grocery stores. If I do this several times/week the ulcers never come. 1 c. distilled water or aloe vera juice (not gel) 1/4 c. glycerin 1/8 c. good oil (e.g. evening primrose, jojoba, sweet almond, olive) a few drops essential oil, if desired. Calendula extract is good, too, but basic recipe works fine. unpowdered disposable gloves. I like the blue nitrile ones the best and can get large boxes of them at BJs Combine all ingredients in spray bottle. Shake well for each use and spray 5-7 times into the gloves. (put on gloves) I wear them overnight but even a few hours/day is good. If you have problems with your toes, the way I did (several infections) daily soaks in Epsom salts at the first sign of pain always works. Hope it works for you the way it does for me!
