One of my hens has bumblefoot

Sleepy, one of my hens, recently suffered from bumblefoot. The pads of the feet swell up and become scabby and pussy. They need to be cleaned in warm water, iodine dabbed on and then magnesium sulphate paste rubbed in. The video shows how to do it.

Did the magnesium sulfate paste work? We have a chicken with bumble foot and would prefer not to have to cut it out of her foot.
