The humans are still yammering on health care. They don't really seem to know what to do about it. So I thought I'd bark in with a few suggestions:
Have you tried licking it?
When I have a bruise, cut or other medical problem, I lick it.
Licking it seems to help.
You humans have pathetically small tongues; So maybe you can't get a full lick in. In which case, I guess, you have a pretty bad problem.
Anyway, licking it is my suggestion. I think licking would help a lot.
