Using Epsom salt for wounds and infections

Epsom salt is being used to treat cuts and wounds for faster healing and preventing infections. The sulfur that is part of the compound has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties, which is why Epsom salt is often recommended as a home remedy not only for cuts and wounds, but also for warts, athlete foot, herpes, acne or for soothing itching chickenpox.  You can either soak the affected area in an Epsom salt or apply a paste from Epsom salt mixed with water.
