Garlic burn?

So applied garlic directly to my wounds as recommended. But I think I have garlic burns on where I applied the garlic. The skin is dark brown. Is that a garlic burn? It seems like I need to dilute the garlic somehow.

monolaurin is effective against staph

Monolaurin (derived from coconut oil) works directly on the envelope of the virus. By
disrupting the lipid bilayer of the virus, Monolaurin inactivates the virus by preventing
attachment (absorption) to susceptible host cell walls. This prevents the uncoating of
viruses needed for replication and infection.

Monolaurin is effective against yeast and fungi, staphylococcus aureus (staph) and
streptococcus agalactiae (strep), chlamydia trachomatis, candidaalbicans, giardia
lamblia, ringworm, H. pylori and gonorrhea.

In studies performed at the Respiratory Virology Branch, Centers for Disease Control,
Monolaurin was shown to remove all measurable infectivity against the following RNA
and DNA viruses:
Herpes Simplex 1 and 2
Epstein-Barr
Bronchitis
Influenza
Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Rubeola
Newcastle's
Cytomegalovirus
Directions
A therapeutic dose of monolaurin is generally 1800mg to 2400mg per day.

Side-Effects
Monolaurin is non-toxic and listed in GRA... read more

Did anybody try to combine antibiotics and non-irradiated garlic that Mr. Bob Anderson mentioned? I tried combining antibiotic that is susceptible to my Mrsa and garlic oil capsules but to no avail. I thought maybe someone tried combining the former and see if they are more potent to the mrsa and can eradicate it.

Beating MRSA with probiotic

Staph is all around us everyday... The question is how and why can it make us sick?
Dr. Bonnie Brassler of Princeton knows why:

http://www.ted.com/talks/bonnie_bassler_on_how_bacteria_communicate.html

We beat MRSA at our house with a course of Bactrim and Phillips Colon Health. It was
populating a family member's gut, causing pruritis, and causing abscess in those that
were genetically susceptible.

May I suggest that the solution isn't to try to kill it - that is impossible - but instead to
out compete it with good bacteria. Don't wipe down with Hibiclens instead roll in the
dirt, take a yogurt bath, bury yourself in the sand, and take a swim in the lake. Perhaps
our sterile lifestyles are the problem? Colitis is now being treated with poop
transplants... which is essentially a good bacteria transplant. Why not MRSA?

Good luck all...

MRSA in the Brain

My son contracted MRSA in his brain following surgery to replace his left bone flap. It took 2 months and 3 doctors before he was hospitalized and diagnosed. I was very concerned when part of his incision wouldn't heal and kept oozing yet was repeatedly told not to worry it's probably just a deep stitch that abscessed and it'll go away on it's own. When he had his follow up appt with his neurosurgeon it took 2 seconds for him to see something was wrong and the next morning he was in surgery. Well thanks to incompetence my son had to have the left hemisphere of his brain removed, the bone totally crumpled while being removed so now he needs a titanium plate to replace it. We've been fortunate in the respect that he's been infection free for 5 months. But from everything I've read that could change at anytime. What I'm wondering is, has anyone else had MRSA in their brain and if so how are doing?

Hi, I'm new to this forum in terms of contributing, but read it quite frequently! I
have been fighting MRSA for almost 2 years and have gone thru many of the
same treatments, medications, PAIN, fatigue, depression, etc., so I will spare you
all that part of this. My confusion being.... my original abscess on the outside of
my ankle has flared up again (we get the site closed and healed but in about 3-4
weeks opens and drains) I'm currently in a pressure wrap, AGAIN. I go back to the
Wound Center tomorrow (06/23/17). What started all this is my primary Doc
ordered a SED Rate blood test and a wound culture as we were discussing my
various symptoms, some of which are old and some are new. I went right over to
the hospital lab and they took blood for the SED test and then preceded to say
"we don't do cultures here" (I was pretty sure they really meant cultures on you,
MRSA is probably stamped all over my records, which calls for different protocols

recurrent mrsa in the ears

I am looking for feedback from others who have experienced mrsa in the ears. My son has had recurrent ear infections since 6 months old. he has had 2 put in twice and the infections became more frequent and ferocious after the second set. I think he got the mrsa at the hospital when they did the tube procedure. He suffered for 10 months until during a 3rd tube procedure a sterile culture showed it was mrsa. he saw pediatric infectious disease doctors and was treated with the bactriban in the nose, bactrim- failed, zyvox- failed and finally the rafampin seemed to work. We had to have nasal swabs to test for the mrsa which were negative for the family even though my son had ooze coming from the ear. We had to take clorox baths, use phizohex soap and scour the house. I thought he was doing well but has now had 2 more infections in the past 5 weeks but a culture can not be done since the fluid is in the middle ear. I have again seen the ent who finally stated that they have done everyth... read more

TO all

I will try to make a long story short. Had a tooth ache back in December. Went to dentist and he said nothing was wrong with my tooth. At the end of Dec.the tooth was really bothering me so I called my dentist and again, took an xray and found nothing wrong with my tooth. He told me to go to an ear,nose and throat doctor thinking it could be my sinues. I didnt go. So mid Jan. the pain got so bad, I went to the ER and they dianosed me with TMJ. SO I followed up with an oral surgeon. He did a panoramic xray and said that the tooth I was complaining about had an infection that needed a root canal. Went to a root canal specialist, he drilled the tooth and started a root canal, gave me antibiotics and told me to come back in 3 weeks, so a week later the pain was really bad and when I called the dentist, he was on vacation. Went to another dentist who drilled the tooth but left it "open" so that the infection could drain. He put me on more antibiotics (augmentin). Fo... read more

Hydrogen peroxide uses in staph/mrsa

I would just like to make a comment and see if anyone else has found this helpful. I have had this infection for 2.5 yrs. I think I have tried most all of the conservative meds they use for this......I have never been on IV antibiotics, so far.

The other day I got into the shower with a large bottle of peroxide and just poured it generously all over myself from the chin down, and rubbed it in good. I foamed up like crazy, of course. Then I took my regular shower with my medicated body wash for psoriasis/eczema and then rinsed and repeated with the peroxide. Its been 2 days since I did this and all of the lesions seem to be drying up. I am not sure how good this will work in the long-run, but has anyone else had experience with peroxide? I have also gone back to trying Protopic ointment again as well. I sure hope to find something that works. It seems every time something looks promising, you turn around and break out all over again within a few weeks.

Sincerely, Lyn

I just wanted to share this because
it might help someone. .i know you'll
think im crazy but people think im
crazy anyways soo here goes..i have
found one thing that stops mrsa pain
and kills boils faster than anything
else I've tried. .and that is old
urine. .just pee in any old glass jar
and let it sit for a few days the
longer the better..it stinks terrible
but it works. .soak Bandana in it and
wrap the urin soaked bandanna around
wher the pain is and the pain stops
almost instantly. Also rub it on the
boils as often as you can and do not
use soap to wash the boils only urin
and rinse with garlic water..I
promise it helps alot especially if
you are poor and uninsured.

Garlic and staph

This first post will take four intstallments.

It's hard to know where to start so I think I will start with the most basic information, make a few bold statements and then back up those statements with supporting studies and statements from research scientists.
Crushed raw non-irradiated garlic kills staph; all staph, including MRSA and what's more, staph cannot become immune to crushed raw garlic like it has the pharmaceutical antibiotics.
That's a pretty bold statement but you will soon understand why it is so.
Freshly crushed raw garlic kills all or almost all harmful bacteria, including staph, on contact. One study (Walton, Herbold&Lendegren 1936-1938 - Journal of Food Science) even showed that the vapors alone from nearby crushed raw garlic killed all bacteria, including staph, out to 8" away just from the fumes.

Numerous other studies, such as Abdou et al., 1972 have confirmed that crushed raw garlic kills staph on contact. I can cite many other studies showing ... read more

MRSA in the urine

My original bout with MRSA was when I contracted it in the hospital from sinus surgery. I was ill for about 6 months and then went on IV Vanco. I just went in to my PCP for a UTI and my urine came back MRSA positive. I can find very little information on MRSA in the urine. I also wonder where else it is my body. I work in a medical facility and I have a newborn grandchild and worry about both constantly being in contact with MRSA and constantly worried about spreading it. The Dr says just to wash wash wash the hands. There are so many questions and so few answers.

MRSA on Lip - drain?
Posted by tiffany

I have MRSA on my lip. It started with a bump below my lip, but one developed right above that on my lip. I went to the doctor and I am now on medication. The bump below my lip never got big and really just looked like a pimple. It drained and isn't an issue now. The one on my lip has not come to a head and has not drained. My question is this: Does a MRSA infection HAVE to be brought to a head and drained or will it go down after awhile due to the antibiotics?
