Fly Agaric and Radiation Burns

I was very surprised to find that fly agaric is used externally as a remedy for radiation burns in Russia (eg "an effective tool in radiation injuries of the skin" ). I was even more surprised when it turned out I had radiation burns myself, and was able to use the fly agaric to treat them.

For the last two years, since I got my first smartphone, my thumbs and index fingers developed very deep splits in them. It seemed that the splits went all the way through the skin. They were very sore, and often very itchy, unbearably so. They had yellowy orange scabs surrounded by red soreness.

A month ago, I suddenly realised that the splits, redness and soreness were exactly where my smartphone touched my hands. I thought perhaps it could be radiation burns, and stopped using the mobile phone. Instead, I started using a netbook much more. The splits largely healed up. But the skin on my index finger, where it touches the mousepad, became very hard and sore.

I bought an electromagnetic radiation meter to see how much radiation - if any - these devices were giving off. I was shocked to see how much EMR (electromagnetic radiation) they were giving out, and continuously, rather than in pulses. Since then I've stayed off the netbook as well as the smartphone, and am only on the computer for short periods of time, using an external keyboard.

My hands are still scarred, but they haven't split again, for the first time in two years. I am satisfied that the splits and soreness were EMR burns. They looked just like the least severe images if you type "radiation burns" into Google images.

Treating Radiation Burns with Fly Agaric

I can't remember what I treated the burns with for the first year. For the second year though, once I'd discovered fly agaric, I treated them with fly agaric tincture, as I'd found it to be great at healing cooking burns and any little cuts, cat scratches etc. The splits would heal up, and become less sore, but they would always return before long, usually just a few days.

Once I realised that they were radiation burns, I tried a fly agaric compress. This was basically just a piece of mushroom soaked in vodka and taped onto the thumb and finger of one hand. This probably isn't the correct way to make a fly agaric compress. It made the skin around the burn look as if it had been in the bath for a week. It didn't feel as if this was the way to treat it, so I went back to just applying the tincture every hour or two, and leaving the wounds open to the air.

Sure enough, when applying the fly agaric tincture onto the radiation burns, they healed up quite quickly, within a few days, especially once I stopped using the netbook as well. They're still scarred, but at least they aren't split or scabbed anymore.

I found that the alcohol in the tincture dried the skin on my hands out. At this point, it would be great to have a fly agaric lotion to apply. I have experimented with coconut oil and powdered fly agaric, but it hasn't really worked out. I hope to find a way to make a fly agaric lotion, or at least manage to find somewhere I can buy the Russian fly agaric lotions.

Of course, sunburn is also a form of radiation burn, and fly agaric may be helpful in treating this as well.

Regrettably, all the photographs I took of my thumbs and fingers at various stages in the healing process are blurred and unusable.


  1. Any updates on a lotion that worked?
