I have not looked up the Jigger to see if it is the same or different. Your home grown cure is the same that I would do in surgery, and a hell of a lot less money. My only issue is the acacia thorn. A really good way to get a staph infection. Came within 12 hours of having my left leg and a kidney taken out last year due to a stab wound from a thorn, could have also been the animal blood.
The leg still looks like I was nailed by a puff adder. And not trying to hijack a thread but I don't like snakes, got nailed in my bed by a Moz cobra about 5 years ago.
