I used Lost Remedy First Aid Balm approximately one week after treating a serious laceration, which probably required stitches, with Neosporin and other OTC lotions/creams/balms with very limited success. Within four days of regularly using the First Aid Balm the cut was completely closed and, by the end of the week, looked as good as new! I keep the First Aid Balm in my medicine cabinet and use it for EVERY scrape and cut now!! Great product for a great price!!!
