Could you please elaborate on why (C) staved off is not the correct answer for the first blank?

Although most ointments would have (staved off or exacerbated ?) the pain
This ointment actually contributes to the pain.

The use of "although" and "actually much to her dismay" indicates that something worse than the first part is mentioned in the second part and therefore something bad is mentioned in the first part. So the first blank has to be a negative which is "exacerbated""
