Yes, that's what I'd read, why HP isn't a good idea for wounds. Thanks, CWS.

A hot branding iron works wonders on bullet wounds...

Good to know, Hoot, but I rarely have a hot branding iron handy (not that I suffer bullet wounds either). Hopefully, one doesn't keep a gun nearby while cooking...it is only lunch or supper, not worth a duel.However, cayenne pepper (no, it doesn't sting--I tried it) packed in a cut paw pad does stop the bleeding. Another thing a vet told me. Before I'd try it on one of my dogs, I had to try it on myself. Being somewhat clumsy, it didn't take long before I cut my thumb...it didn't sting, and it did stop the bleeding. That too is the dog first aid cupboard (which is also the human first aid cupboard).

Funny thing, I cut myself again! Perhaps not having a good day...

Next arm (there's two, right?) and this time I used 91% IPA. It stung a bit more. We guys will look you right in the eye and tell you, no problem!

Still not sure which is best. Actually, unless there's some kind of infection going on I prefer to dry bandage my small cuts. I'm convinced they heal quicker without salve.

I guess I have a test case for healing here. Right arm HP, left arm EPA. Right arm was first, and a bit worse. Left arm is less woundful, I guess I must be learning something...

Whiskey might not cure it, but it will sure make you feel better about the whole thing!

Heard that about a lot of things. Maybe it's one of them scientific laws...

Closest thing I have is a hot curling iron. Will that work? Not that I anticipate having a bullet hole in the near future, but you never know.

That is one thing I hope you will never encounter.
I suppose a curling iron might do....I will let ya know if I ever have a need to try it.
