I recently (5-2008) had incisive and laser surgeries to remove some scars on my arm. Of course, one of the incisions became infected (as they did in 6-2006). The whole area was red, inflamed and painful. I first applied a mixture of Smile's Prid Salve and alum. Then I layed a tea bag on it (all I had was a Celestial Seasoning Green Tea w/ honey and lemon) and wrapped it up in Saran Wrap. The next day the swelling was significantly reduced and the pain was almost gone. One day after that (after regularly wipping with the tea bag) the whole infection was gone. (Thanks for the suggestion T>G!).
