Cleopatra was reputed to bath in Asses milk with honey. it appears in ancient times this was common for people with illness of the skin, in my research i found asses milk was similar to breast milk no wonder asses milk was a powerful healer, as many mothers have found over the years when their child got conjunctivitis they just washed their eyes with breast milk and viola cured. Now i just need to find a source of asses milk for my skin problems
