Can I use your ointments on cuts and other wounds in my skin?

Firstly, if you have a deep cut or severe wound or burn, you should seek urgent care to be sure the wound is properly cleaned and to determine if you need stitches or other treatment. You should not apply oil-based ointments to any open wound or deep cut. Ointments can trap anaerobic bacteria in an open wound and lead to infection. Once the wound is closed and there is no sign of infection, topical ointments can be applied.
