Any remedies to cure a puncture from honey locust thorns? I had one go through the side of my leather work shoes yesterday while cutting some fire wood. My wife opened it up this evening and has me soaking it in hot water and peroxide. I had one on my index finger this spring and it never healed real well.

No real wisdom to share but I have those dang things on my property and it seems like the main thing is to make sure you get the entire thorn out of the wound. I think the peroxide soak is probably as good as anything. They do seem to have something on those thorns that is an irritant, don't they.

Had one stab me in the belly while I was mowing some brush a couple of weeks ago. Noticed a spot on my t-shirt that evening about the size of a quarter- blood spot. Still have a big bruise there....

I'm wondering if drawing salve would help, even a day or two later? Mom used to put that on me when I would have a wound or infection, always healed up quick. A few years ago I had an ingrown whisker (ouch) and I discovered they still sell the stuff. Called "Prid" (Smile's Prid Homeopathic Salve from Walker Pharmacal Co. St. Louis MO), comes in a small orange tin and I got it at Wal Mart. Pulled that painful whisker out over night. Might pull the poison out from your wound.

Putting Turpentine on a wound like that has worked good for me several times.

The tip of a locust thorn can break off deep in the wound.
Keep an eye on it, and if your tetanus is out of date (10 yr) you
better go get a shot.

when i was a young boy around 8 yrs i got a thorn in
my foot it went threw my shoe and dad and mom could
not pull it out with tweezers so that night dad cut
a strip of sugar cured bacon and wraped it around my
foot, the next morning it was sticking out of skin
so they could pull it with tweezers. if i wasnt the
patient i would not believe how well it worked
