Dr. Chris Reynolds' Wheatgrass Skin Table

(The following table is reproduced by permission from Dr. Chris Reynolds' website, "Wheatgrass for Health Professionals".)

Below are some skin and related ailments where my wheatgrass extract has been very effective in many instances. Although there is no guarantee, wheatgrass often works and, because of its high margin of safety, is always worth trying on virtually any skin condition or damage.

Abscess Drainage

Apply WG to surface of abscess & wait 10 minutes. This reduces pain of incision. Drain abscess. Apply WG to wound & surrounding inflamed tissues. Drainage wick unnecessary . Apply non-stick dressing (e.g. Melolin) and moderately firm bandage. Repeat in 24 hours.

Pain can cease overnight. Minimal discharge, inflammation & swelling. Wound closure in two or three days usually with daily dressing & WG application. Patient can usually self-treat with WG & dressing on day 3.

Acne vulgaris

Apply twice daily. Takes a week to several months. Persist.

Acne rosacea

Apply daily to affected area. Persist. WG is the only therapeutic agent I know that can assist this condition. Erythema reduced, improved appearance.

Acute, painful rashes

Apply sparingly to affected area. Can provide rapid, dramatic reduction of pain, swelling & blistering.

Alopecia areata

Apply WG cream or spray twice daily. Usually takes 2 or 3 months, but some good results can be expected. Wheatgrass appears to have a positive effect on auto-immune conditions such as alopecia areata, psoriasis and acne rosacea.

Anal fissure

It is my view that anal fissure is most likely an auto-immune condition. Given that wheatgrass often heals the fissure and relieves the patient's constipation, this is a reasonable concept.

Apply small amount to anal canal once a day. Fissure can heal rapidly, often in 7 to 10 days. No adverse effects and usually very effective.

Burn contractures

Apply sparingly to contracture 3 times a day or more frequently. Contracture can soften in 15-20 minutes allowing increased mobilisation. Long term effect not known. Also worth trying on Dupuytren's contractures.


Apply immediately to burn area after first-aid. Apply light, non-stick dressing (eg Melolin). Change dressing daily. Pain reduction or elimination can occur within hours. Low or negligible infection & rapid healing with reduced scar formation. For these reasons, I believe wheatgrass is of major medical importance as a treatment for burns, both superficial and deep.


Apply every few hours. Can moderate symptoms.

Diabetic foot ulcers

Apply sparingly to ulcer once a day & cover with light non-stick dressing. If too painful, apply around ulcer. Can reduce pain & risk of infection. May induce healing & increase circulation to affected area.


Excision of skin lesions

Smear small amount of WG over base of excision e.g. cyst, or over sutured skin. Cover firmly with non-stick dressing. Re-dress daily.

Minimal or no pain after local anesthetic wears off. Clean, blood-free open wound site next day, no adherence to dressing. Little ooze. Can prevent infection, with fast healing & reduced scarring.


Apply WG daily with light dressing. Antibiotics not usually required. Exudate can dry up in 48 hours. Lesion may take several weeks to resolve.

Herpes zoster

Use medication if indicated. Apply WG every 4 hours to developing or established rash. May assist & shorten healing process & ease pain.

Ingrown toenail

Apply to inflamed area & cover with light dressing once a day. Often marked reduction in pain & inflammation in a few days.

Injection sites

Apply immediately to injection site & cover with bandaid. Can prevent local pain, tenderness & swelling.

Jellyfish & insect bites & stings

Apply immediately to affected area.Can ease pain & reduce inflammation if applied early.

Lacerations & other open wounds

Apply to open wound or sutured lesion. Apply firm, non-stick dressing. Repeat daily.inimal seepage or blood loss. No adhesion to dressing. Rapid healing, swelling reduction & no wound infection observed.

Laser burns

Apply to burn site once a day. Can prevent & reduce inflammation & pain.

Molluscum contagiosum

Apply once daily. Lesions can resolve completely with continued use, usually within a few weeks. This is the only effective treatment I have ever come across for this condition. It pays to persist.


Apply to affected area. WG almost invariably produces remarkable improvement, reducing pain, inflammation and swelling overnight. Antibiotics not required and extract prepares area for incision and drainage. However, pus tends to be absorbed and incision often unnecessary.


Apply WG 3 times a day or more frequently to affected area. Can soften tissue & reduce swelling, tenderness and pain.

Phlebotomy, IV sites

Apply immediately after vein puncture. Can prevent bruising & inflammation. Ideal for venepuncturists.


Apply twice daily to affected areas. Persist. May take a couple of months for lesions to fade. Usually itch disappears in first few days or weeks, then plaque becomes thinner with reduction in scale shedding. Lesions become smoother and in time, centre begins to fade.

Slow healing bites

Apply daily to wound with light non-stick dressing. Repeat daily.Wound can dry quickly & heal within several weeks or sooner.

Solar keratoses

Smear small amount of WG on lesion twice daily. Can eradicate lesions in about 6 - 8 weeks. Also useful for basal cell carcinomas.

Slow healing bites

Apply daily to wound with light non-stick dressing. Repeat daily.
Wound can dry quickly & heal within several weeks or sooner.


Apply as soon as possible to affected area. Repeat 4 hourly. Can significantly reduce pain and inflammation. Helps remove peeling skin. Wheatgrass can also augment the effects of sunscreen. Apply it to the skin before applying your sunscreen.

Varicose ulcers

Smear small amount of WG over ulcer bed & surrounding skin every 2 days. Apply non-stick light dressing. Compression not required. Pain reduction & cleansing of ulcer floor can occur with healing from wound edges & center of ulcer. Skin surrounding ulcer thickens & strengthens. Simple self-care for patient. Cleansing agents, astringents, compression bandages not usually required. Highly cost effective. Can reduce need for hospitalization.
