    What is your favourite? Carol told me to use natural yogurt earlier this year but my skin was so hot it curdled

    No, it's a real one honest! Seen it several times in Tenerife where some poor wee lassies turned into a lobster and in agony and someone from a restaurant has done the old tomato bit on them.

    Saw some chav with her council house facelift and homemade tattoos in the doctors yesterday while having monthly jab.  She was like a lobster and said but there were clouds yesterday.  She had no EHIC, and no travel insurance so had to fork out €90 for a consultation and to be slathered in something that looked like yogurt.

    Aw feck, I saw a great Irish comedy video the other day where a car knocked a lad down and ran over his hand but another Irish lad put sudacreme on it and he was fine! Irish cure-it-all!

    When I was in Anguilla in 69 I got frazzled, my face was so swollen my cheeks and nose were level with each other , our doc told me to stay in the shade, yeah right, there were only bushes where we were, any way I bumped into this old shipwright who took me over to an aloe plant and cut a big piece from it and told me to rub it on the burnt bits, it was slimy horrible stuff but it had me right as rain in 24 hrs, been a firm believer in aloe vera ever since

    Eileen's dad used to keep an aloe vera plant in the kitchen. As a farmer, he was always getting cuts and scrapes. He never used any band aids just did the same as you Bill, cut off a piece of the aloe vera plant and rubbed that on the cut.

    Yep, Aloe Vera is the stuff. Rampant in Tenerife too. Got one on my balcony garden patch. Gets a big red erect flower on it sometimes. Natural yogurt for thrush mate.
