There were many recommendations on taking epsom salt baths. Regular ol' Vaseline for an emollient (there are many times I have trouble bending) and zinc oxide to soothe the redness.
I had never found relief from any of those items before so I was already doubting them.
The bath itself. I probably put in more salt then I was "supposed" to. And it burned.... All the cuts, and scratches...and the damage I did...was screaming out as I tried to drown them. But it was a different type of burn...a good burn. For the zinc oxide I use Bordeaux's Butt Paste Extra strength. Here is a picture I took the day after the bath, paste and Vaseline.
While it's not the best, I was certainly pleased with the results. I still did some damage as I slept however. The 2nd picture shows a large cut on my shoulder.
