    I tried to get a fresh tube at Walmart the other day, but they were sold out.

    In case anyone is not aware, black salve (ichthammol) is used topically to treat pimples and boils. I was going to put some on this growth on the inside of one of my butt cheeks. The salve will tend to draw the pus up to the surface where it can break out, releaving the pressure and soreness.

        Black salve, also known by the brand name Cansema, is a dangerous and controversial alternative cancer treatment.

          Thanks for that. Ichthammol is completely different and recognized by the medical community as a safe and effective treatment.

            ICK-the-mall. Wikipedia says it's made from shale oil and it has a 'bitumonous odor' - in other words, it smells like an old coal stove.

            Ask for it at favorite vintage pharmacy! It's usually stocked next to Lydia Pinkham's vegetable compound.

            24 years past it's "use by" date? It's perfectly fine.

              Sure, as long as you don't put it on your face.

                    My maternal grandparents were Watkins distributors. All kinds of salves including black "drawing" salve. It freakin' WORKS.
                    I not only resent the allegation, I resent the alligator!
