I believe that using a castor oil pack above your affected area will help you tremendously. There is a lot of information available on the internet. Basically it involves creating a "pack" by saturating three layers of 12"x12" cotton or wool flannel with cold-pressed cator oil and then placing it on the affected area. It works best if you apply an electric heating pad or hot water bottle over the pack. You will need to put a piece of plastic between the heating pad/water bottle and the "pack" to keep them from getting dirty. I use the plastic bags you get at the grocery store. They are a perfect fit for my heating pad and they are disposable. Leave the "pack" on for about 1-1 1/2 hours. Rinse the area afterward with 2 quarts of warm water with 2 tsps. of baking soda. There is also a Castor Oil Therapy Forum here on the curezone. Castor oil has been successfully utilized for hundreds of years for a wide array of conditions. I hope this helps.
