Skin cancer

I used Kalanchoe draghemontiana poultices for skin cancers grandfather who is 98 years old and, although it set out again it favors falling ulcerations and leave him with healthy skin.

Application of poultices is the most difficult point. A local nurse specialist that came to heal an ulcer on his heel twice a week facilitated us a special dressings. When there is no wound we put the chopped kalanchoe leaf in a mortar, otherwise we soaked a gauze with the juice of the plant and we apply it. Ideally we replace the poultice twice a week, but when we did not have enough treatment plants we space it, although he always puts it on.

When there is no wound we put the chopped leaf kalanchoe in a mortar, otherwise gauze soaked with the juice of the plant and we make it. Ideally we replace the poultice twice a week, but when we did not have enough plants for treatment we space in in the time, although it always takes dressings posts.

With this treatment you have to wait a month for this fall, what we call the "medallions". Now we put some dressings that are called 'Allevyn adhesive' of 17.5x17.5, we cut to size and put him in his legs and chest, which are the most serious, although he also has it on his face and arms.

I remember on time that specialist was impressed because week to week long he noticed the great change. One of dressings he was wearing in his leg was huge, about 17x8 cm, almost black, and it had changed its color, like if it had been absorbed.

Ulcerations reappear, it's like they always come out, but I think they take longer to develop. In the moments that we applied with most intensity and frequency I  remember that skin  had almost completely healthy, the problem is that the treatment is not regular (we didn't arrive to attend all the time as we wish ...).

I hope this information could be useful.
