I have checked the medication section of The Haynes Fen Troll Manual , i think the diagnosis is Fen Troll Psychosis caused by extreme wet weather conditions and the inability to wander round the fields sniffing cabbages ...the cure... soak affected parts in quantities of Batemans

On the label on both bottles it does say that it's for external use only.....if you must use a brush, try the toilet brush it's softer.yellyell

As for iodine, only thing it is useful for is mixing with olive oil to start off a suntan....ok you do look like you're chinese but it rubs off after a few days when the natural tan breaks through...unless you are chinese and you keep up the application and stay out of the sun....shimmplebig_laughbig_laugh

Kaye ,I take frequent libations of Batemans Combined Harvest,Drink combined as it covers 4 of my 5 a day.

EP Unripe walnuts are good for a fake tan and also for ,no it's not nicotine it's walnuts for schoolboy smokers.

MOS knew a farmer in Devon who used to fix ringworm with a wirebrush and iodine , I reckon he left it behind runaway   Athletes foot cream deals with ringworm and saves the hassle of getting it by appointment.wave

Oooooh, nasty farmer treating ringworm with iodine and a wire brush! Athletes foot cream works but so does tea tree oil or a good tea tree cream. Sorted out the baby hedgehog currently eating me out of house and home.

 

I once had to endure a lecture from a dispensing chemist about how to avoid athlete's foot  because I didn't want to have to explain to him that it was really for a rook¦ embarassed whistle runaway

Mind you he was soft he'd come and lean on you to be scratched (the bull that is).  Best of luck with the urchin our two seem to have hibernated . Proper Job .

Sounds like some maid. Thats the sort of thing my recently departed aunt would have done in her younger days.

The hedgepig is fine, his fur is growing back now and his weight has gone from 150g to 500g so he'll be on his way soon, along with his companion.

Its far too warm for hibernation down here, but then, some silly maid on the bus the other day got excited about a patch of dew on the grass because she thought it looked like frost. When we do get frost the school kids think its snow. When it does snow everyone rushes out to take photographs and the cars coming down from higher ground wear the layer of snow on their roofs and bonnets like a badge of honour. big_laugh

It does 'appen due to the annual influx of emmets thinking it's all a motorway car insurance premiums are loaded as it's a high accident area locals suffer emmets go home again. Arguably the best bit of old style cornwall is now pembrokeshire and that's being ruined fast.
