Insect Bites & Stings & Rashes, inflammation, acne, athlete's foot:
Use cabbage to help heal insect bites, burns or boils, and varicose veins.
A dressing of crushed cabbage leaves, promptly applied, relieves pain, speeds healing, and draws out infection. Wash the wound with boiled water and apply a dressing of crushed cabbage. Renew daily until the healing is complete.
For more serious wounds, cabbage leaves should be plunged in boiling water or soaked in olive oil for one hour to soften. This makes the cabbage cling better and increases its antiseptic effect.
