Unfortunately, the times have sunk in the summer when the cottage was just a place of summer vacation and entertainment in nature. True, the most wealthy part of the country’s population successfully revives this tradition, arranging its villas exclusively for a pleasant pastime, using the miracles of modern landscape design and, acquiring plots for development with the surrounding forests and lakes.
We will talk about the remaining majority, which acquires cottages or long -awaited areas in order to closely engage in heavy, but grateful, agricultural work. Few of you manage to avoid the exacerbation of completely unnecessary sores and minor injuries in pursuit of the crop, which you must certainly learn to quickly and confidently cope. The sooner you will help yourself, the earlier you will return to the planned business.
The most common nuisance are corns on the palms that appear in gardeners who have lost dexterity over long winter months. Unfortunately, work in gloves does not always save. If you have a similar nuisance, in no case pierce the dropsy or watery corns – there is a great risk of infection. Cut a piece of young bark from the oak and carefully cover it with a sore spot, laying the bandage on top. After the pain subsides and the inflammation decreases, you can use fresh mint leaves instead of the bark. Try for at least a couple of days not to take up a shovel or a rake.
“Beloved” and a very unpleasant ailment of summer residents – muscle pain (myalgia). Having worked on the bed until the seventh sweat and taking a wet T -shirt sticking to the body in the evening, in the morning you wake up with aching back pain or in the area of the ribs. It is best to treat myalgia with dry heat. To do this, heat salt or sand in the stove (on the stove) and pierce in natural cotton or linen fabric. Then attach a hot (but not burning) bag to the sore spot and hold it until it cools down. Repeat this procedure up to 2 times a day.
The recovery process will accelerate tea from nettles or flowers of primrose spring. It is advisable to drink such tea at least 3 times a day.
Unfortunately, it often happens that radiculitis “grabs” right in the garden. This is due to excessive and unusual physical activity, especially when transferring weights. Therefore, when you are going to field work, do not forget to take with you anti -inflammatory and painkillers, such as finalgon, viralin or any others with the therapeutic effect (especially created on the basis of bee poison) and pepper patch. If it happened that there was nothing similar at hand, try to get to the horizontal bar or a strong branch. Holding your hands for such a horizontal bar or branch, stay in the ““ hanging ”position for 10-15 minutes (it would be nice to weight your weight, tied to the feet of gravity). It’s good if you can repeat this exercise up to 3 times a day. Your condition will improve markedly after several procedures. The warming compress made of valerian on alcohol will also help alleviate pain. Maily moistened with infusion, attach pain to the location of the pain, covering with a cellophane on top, then wrap yourself with a blanket and lie down until you feel burning. Even if you feel better a little, do not try to immediately resume work.
Recall how to treat cut wounds: rinse with a weak solution of potassium permanganate pale pink, treat the edges of the wound with “green” or iodine and apply a bandage of sterile bandage. If there was no bandage at hand, any fabric made of natural material (preferably cotton) moistened in a solution of manganese or boric acid is suitable. When suppuing the wound, in no case use ointments that form the film, aggravate the inflammatory process, making the outflow of pus and block oxygen access. Dry the wound 2-3 times a day, treat it with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, then lubricate with “green”, sprinkle with an antibiotic.
Be careful and careful in the garden and in the garden, then the time spent in the country will bring undoubted benefit, and the crop will please with abundance and diversity.
