Potato is that cure, our grandparents used when they were suffering from burns, rashes, eczema or other skin conditions. It’s also recommended for sunburns, the most common problem in summer. Potato starch is a substance that helps relieving pain (or itching), reduces inflammation and help quick healing of the lesion.
Just grate some potatoes then mix them with a little honey and olive juice. Apply the mixture on the affected area, covered with a bandage and leave it for 1-2 hours. Change the poultice then continue the treatment until the wound is completely healed.
The quantities vary from case to case. If you have a small burnt then a potato with 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of olive oil is enough. But if your whole back is burnt, then you must increase the quantity.
