Frenchie, just been reading one of those homeopathic recipes for stopping bleeding - Cayenne Pepper! Seems that if you pour cayenne pepper onto the cut etc. it will lower the pain and stop the bleeding!

Memories of getting cayenne or chilli pepper juice into body opening tells me otherwise, but it's an alternative I guess, especially if you are on your own and applying the usual pressure can't be done!

What's the technical view on this? Apart from the fact that your standard doktari will throw a wobbler because you ain't qualified or some other rubbish! Also more to the point what's your view as an experienced medico - has you heard of it? Thanks mate!

it's the blunt knife that causes the problem most of the time - now I thought a brilliant Seaman like you would know this!

handy for opening tins of milk with when you ran the coffee boat! I wonder did you actually do any seamanship? or was that to complicated for you??

Cannot think of anything worse, probably if you cut yourself somewhere else and rub pepper in it, the pain from that will make the first cut seem less painful :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Thats called the gate theory!! ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

That's what I was thinking mate - I loved the comment from some "witch lady" lathering in loads of cayenne pepper to stop the bleeding! It's stop the bleeding all right! Couple of ounces of cayenne pepper rubbed into an open wound would stop anything - heart! lungs! life aye anything - there again once yer dead there ain't much to pump the blood so guess it would work after a fashion! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
