Skin Related Conditions (Use Cream, Spray, Superbalm)

Below are some conditions where we have often found wheatgrass to be very useful. Click the condition for how to apply.



How To Apply Wheatgrass


Abscess Drainage (use Cream / Superbalm or Spray)

Apply Wheatgrass to surface of abscess & wait 10 minutes. This reduces pain of incision. Drain abscess. Apply Wheatgrass to wound & surrounding inflamed tissues. Drainage wick unnecessary . Apply non-stick dressing (e.g. Melolin) and moderately firm bandage. Repeat in 24 hours. Pain can cease overnight. Minimal discharge, inflammation & swelling. Wound closure in two or three days usually with daily dressing & Wheatgrass application. Patient can usually self-treat with Wheatgrass & dressing on day 3.


Acne vulgaris (use Cream / Superbalm and/or Spray)

Apply twice daily. Takes a week to several months. Persist.


Acne rosacea (use Cream / Superbalm and/or Spray)

Apply daily to affected area. Persist. Wheatgrass is the only therapeutic agent I know that can assist this condition. Erythema reduced, improved appearance.


Acute, painful rashes (use Cream / Superbalm and/or Spray)

Apply sparingly to affected area. Can provide rapid, dramatic reduction of pain, swelling & blistering.


Alopecia areata (use Spray)

Apply Wheatgrass Cream or Spray twice daily. Usually takes 2 or 3 months, but some good results can be expected. Wheatgrass appears to have a positive effect on auto-immune conditions such as alopecia areata, psoriasis and acne rosacea.


Anal fissure  (use Cream or Superbalm)

It is my view that anal fissure is most likely an auto-immune condition. Given that wheatgrass often heals the fissure and relieves the patient's constipation, this is a reasonable concept.
Apply small amount to anal canal twice a day with a cotton bud. Fissure can heal rapidly, often in 7 to 10 days. No adverse effects and usually very effective.

Burn contractures (use Spray)

Apply sparingly to contracture 3 times a day or more frequently. Contracture can soften in 15-20 minutes allowing increased mobilisation. Long term effect not known. Also worth trying on Dupuytren's contractures.


Burns (use Spray)

Apply immediately to burn area after first-aid. Apply light, non-stick dressing (eg Melolin). Change dressing daily. Pain reduction or elimination can occur within hours. Low or negligible infection & rapid healing with reduced scar formation. For these reasons, I believe wheatgrass is of major medical importance as a treatment for burns, both superficial and deep.


Chilblains (use Cream / Superbalm and/or Spray)

Apply every few hours. Can moderate symptoms.


Cracked nipples from breastfeeding (use Spray)

Apply a little Recovery Spray over the nipple area before and after each feed. Wheatgrass is a very effective anti-inflammatory which reduces inflammation and heals cracking, AND is safe to drink, so it won’t harm the baby. In fact, because wheatgrass  boosts the immune system, it will help protect the baby from infection.


Foot and Leg Ulcers (use Spray and Supershots)

Apply sparingly to ulcer once a day & cover with light non-stick dressing. If too painful, apply around ulcer. Can reduce pain & risk of infection. May induce healing & increase circulation to affected area. Combine with Dr Wheatgrass Supershots to boost healing.
