My OH got a tick bite on the leg that has become infected. She now has a hand sized area that is swollen and red.
I've explained to her that in the movies this is usually dealt with using a hunting knife, which is first cleansed over an open fire. The patient is given a slug of whisky and a stick to bite on, as an alternative to anaesthetic during the operation. I can do this.
Inexplicably, she doesn't seem keen on my offer.
Doesn't it also need someone to suck the poison out.
I can do that, too. I will require slugs of the whisky, before and after.
@fitheach You need a better whisky in your drinks cabinet, obv.
I've got some excellent Laphroaig and Caol Ila currently. I also have a bottle of Grouse, which is usually for cooking, but could be for medicinal use.
@fitheach Wow. You've really spoiled her Iain.
Imagine wasting good whisky.
No, it isn't.
Thanks for the suggestion.
It is infected, and she has collected a prescription of antibiotic from the pharmacy this evening.
