Starched collars did nobody any good except give men boils on the back of
their necks.

My Mam used to put the old fashioned poultice on a piece of gauze..pop it
under the grill then put it on my Dads neck while it was
there's a little container that boots's put on as it is cold and it does a better job,no burning included.
