Epsom salt holds great power for healing infections. Although not recommended to be swallowed, Epsom salt works best as a soaking solution for wounds, such as infected fingers or hands. It's sold almost anywhere, including drugstores, which makes a it a very available healing agent for anyone to take advantage of.
How Much Epsom Salt to Soak an Infected Finger?
Get a cup of warm water and eyeball a tablespoon of Epsom salt. It doesn't have to be exact. A little more or a little less Epsom salt won't make much of a difference. It's inclusion in the solution is what counts. Use only a cup of water because you are only soaking your infected finger, not your entire hand. Soak for five to 10 minutes and repeat every hour or so.
