I only have garlic bread. how do I apply it?

Garlic has actually been traditionally used to treat skin infections, usually when somebody got an injury in the field or at war and they needed something with antibiotic properties to apply to the wound. So next time you get a cut and think it might get a bit infected just ram a clove right in.
15 Nov 2017 01:43 - +60
Alternatively, you can stick your cut into a bowl of cayenne pepper. I️t will clot nearly immediately, but at the expense of a little of your soul. Ask me how I know.

How is this shitty? It works exactly as they said.
15 Nov 2017 01:39 - +32
Little known fun fact: If you don't have garlic on hand, salt will do pretty much the same thing, only better. And by better I mean it will hurt much, much more.
15 Nov 2017 00:45 - +11
It is a vasoconstrictor, though. So should help with bleeding.
15 Nov 2017 01:51 - +10
It is said that if applied quickly after a vampire bite you will have a 50% chance of not changing.

Mix fresh crushed garlic with course kosher salt to make paste then fill wound. It will take care of infection.
15 Nov 2017 06:53 - +1
I FEEL SO ALIVE! Great tip.
15 Nov 2017 05:43 - +1
However, if you have an ear infection it actually will help against the pain immediately. Just put a small slice of a clove in your ear, works like a charm.
15 Nov 2017 04:56 - +1
+1 to that? Splash some Apple Cider Vinegar on the wound!

I always like to first apply lemon juice, salt, and then you rub garlic on it.
15 Nov 2017 04:42 - +1
This is not shitty at all, raw garlic is actually a fabulous disinfectant.

Reminds me of the time I bit my tongue eating a calzone. I followed it up with a swig of Fireball whiskey. It still hurt after but compared to the intense burn of the whiskey on my bleeding tongue, it was much more bearable.

Its like getting horrible bleeding hemorrhoids, then sleeping on a bed riddled with bed bugs.
15 Nov 2017 03:44 - +1
I always use salt, it stops the bleeding, but I dont know if I help or affect the injure :(
15 Nov 2017 05:49 - +1
Bonus LPT: rub onions in as well and you’ve got the start of a great home-cooked meal. Transfer everything to crock pot and let simmer for 8 hours. If this were on r/frugal we’d just need to add some lentils.
15 Nov 2017 03:46 - +1

More usefully (unless you're using it as an interrogation technique) it can be used to cure a severe toothache. You can, A.) crush it, mix it with salt, and apply it lightly to the affected tooth, B.) crush it, mix it with warm water and salt, and swish it around the area of pain, C.) Crush it, mix it with peanut butter, apply as a paste to the affected area, wait a few minutes, then rinse your mouth out with warm salt water, or, D.) Just cut one of the fuckers in half and rub the cut side into the affected area until the pain subsides enough to chew it with the tooth, and, finally, rinse your mouth out with warm salt water. Garlic, when crushed or cleaved raw, releases Allicin, which fights off bacteria and boosts the immune system, so it's especially helpful for pain resulting from tooth decay. Plus it's low calorie, highly nutritious, and tastes amazing, so you should probably add it to everything you cook just to be safe.

Seriously though, rub fresh garlic juice on a budding cold sore, and it will disappear. Swear to god.
