It seems fairly obvious that the maximum benefit can be derived from the third choice, but i wonder if a similar healing is involved in hydrocolloidal plasters which i've been devoted to for the last 11 years with enormous success - especially in tropical climates where untreated exposed wounds can often get out of control.

Or maybe i'm just fortunate in being born with a healthy immune system!
