Ichthammol aids in the healing of wounds, chaps, chronic skin infections, eczema, boils, and abscesses. It can be applied to a sore to help moisten and soothe, allowing the wound to heal from the inside out. It is also an effective salve for fly bites on the ears or around the tail, and can remove tick infestation on manes and tails.
Ichthammol is a highly effective drawing salve that can be used to draw infection or debris from a wound or hoof. When treating a hoof, it can be mixed with Epsom salt to aid in drawing.
