My dad used kerosene for almost everything. Ticks, fleas, cuts and whatever. He always had a small can of it where ever he might be or what ever kind of job he was doing. On his saddle or later in his vehicle.
I remember after I was married when he and my husband were building fence along the highway near Kingman. They were stretching barb wire and it broke. Cut my dad's cheek clear thru. He got out his kerosene and put on it. We tried to get him to a dr. and he wouldn't go. Kept using the kerosene until it healed. Never had the slightest scar. It was amazing.
We also used kerosene in our lamps. (: No electricity at the time.
