Thread: To rub or not to rub, that is the question

    To rub or not to rub, that is the question

    For some unkown reason, pressure from something is causing red spots on my spine that remain for a few days. If I remember correctly, I have read that it is better to rub cream/lotion around the sore rather than on the sore. Is this accurate?
    On a side note, the cream I use is a mixture of aloe, tea tree oil, and emu oil. Is this good for red spots?

    Aloe & tea tree oil are ok. I have never heard of emu oil- isn't an emu an animal???
    It is okay to apply lotion directy on the red spots on your back- dont rub red spots in your calves/legs as these may be blood clots and could be dislodged. and travel to the lungs.
