Ok so my 8 year old daughter has a staph infection in her right front sinus cavity.
Surgery was done to clear it out in July and then 45 days of clyndamycin. Well her cough
that was the beginning of this mess last time came back and sure enough test results
show staph. Any and all advice appreciated.

Brent -

You have come to the right place to help yourself.

Natural non-irradiated garlic kills all bacteria, including MRSA and no bacteria, including MRSA can become immune to crushed raw garlic and long soaks in garlic water can do wonders in making MRSA go away.

There are many posts about garlic in this forum nd if you will search for and read these posts you will come to see the solution to your MRSA problems.

You will smell garlicky for a while but it works.

Good luck to you.

I'm a MRSA survivor and mine encapsulated into a absess a perirectal
abscess i couldn't walk and was bed bound for 2 years.
i learned to wear only clothing i can bleach and use white
bleachable towels.
i learned to make sure i take vitamins and dairy 3 hours after my
antibiotic and to eat with my antibiotic so my stomach could handle
the meds. one med could be eaten with dairy and one couldn't.
i learned to make sure i use probiotics.
i learned that MRSA can live on a object for 2 years.
i learned to make sure i don't wash the abscess with the rest of my
body i washed it first and last with antibacterial soap. and changed
my bandage probably over 6 times a day. washing it with homemade
saline solution. i got a digital scale and measured out 9 grams of non
ionized sea salt and boiled 2 liters of bottled water . and put them
in gallon jugs to save to wash my wound and spray bottles.i would get
my bandages really super cheap from allegro medical online. i'm very
glad i got them there cuz the regular pharmacys were charging alot for
them even 8 dollars a 4 ounce can of saline solution. and its
expensive being sick.
i learned to sip on oregano oil with water. and to add lots of
garlic and onions to my food. let the garlic and onion after chopping
to sit out for 30 minutes a chemical change happens that increases its
strength for antibacterial effects.
I wish i had known these things b4 i started fighting this disease!!
God bless u all! I learned many things during the illness mostly i
learned pain and compassion. I wish u all the best! I'll be checking
the thread and reposting this one for a new thread. hope to see u
there :)

I have been fighting chronic MRSA for 4 years now. finally decided to apply for disability but I have not heard anything yet.One of my worst infections started as a bruise on the front of my hip and ended in surgery that removed muscle and tissue in that area. I have trouble walking, sitting, standing, etc......I have been to all kinds of doctors, specialist, surgeons, you name it. No answers, they give me all kinds of pain scripts but no real help.In the mean time I have kept my infections down by washing everything with clorox2 and I bath with hibiclense regularly.

My daughter was diagnosed with the hospital-born version of MRSA 1 1/2 years ago & has decided that she cannot under any circumstances work a job outside the home. And she has a doctor who has signed off for this disease to try to get the $3,000-$4,000 monthly disability check from the gov't. We take the grandbabies to her every week for a 2-hour visitation. I am concerned that she will pass this illness to the small children (1&2) and that they will transfer the disease to us at our house. Or to other family members we come into contact with. She has not recently been bedridden, this is July & she has been outbreak-free since Nov.
She is worried about getting a paper cut & contaminating an entire office building & infecting everyone who works in that building, please remember that she has no job, hasn't wanted one for a couple of years.
We are concerned abouth the likelihood of her transferring the illness to the grandchildren & then for them to transfer it to us.
Can anyone advise? Thanks.

Jes, you can get your student loans waived as Laura mentioned. I too had student loans...and had them waived~ I'm on social security for an epilepsy condition. call Fargo, tell them you need them to send you a waiver form and why. Better yet have them fax it right to your dr. The Dr. needs to fill it out as soon as possible answering every question and following every instruction on the form or they may not approve it. Make sure your dr. is aware of why and what your intent is.
I hope this helps you. It did for me! One less worry.
I'm on this sight because my Daughter (25) has just been diagnosed with MRSA. She works in an Emergency Room as a Pt.Rep. I can tell she may be in denial of her condition. It took a a few day's for her to fill out an accident report at her file a workers comp claim...though it's done now. She feels as well as the Nurse who diagnosed her and the supervisor of her dept feel she contracted it from work ~ Proper procedures may not have been followed for gowning up and wearing gloves when MRSA Pts. came into the ED. She has already had a couple of outbreaks and my Granddaughter may have contracted it too. collecting Disability from her work and Social Security has been on my mind. I'm her mom, I love her and my granddaughter, what do we do? Information that this site has offered and the support means a great deal! Courtney (daughter) has no insurance right now, she was going to pick it up through her work in January when enrollment was schedule I don't know what she can do in the mean time with dr. bills ~ testing etc! I'm concerned that if she gets a cut or abrasion on her skin , does this mean her cells aren't able to heal because of the (membrane)that forms around the cells? Rhonda

My daughter and husband fight MRSA along with our roommate. My husband
has had it for over 3 years and he breaks out about every 6 months
unless he gets a cut or sick. Which in turns makes my daughter and
roommate break out. I have a 10 month old son. Me and him DO NOT have
MRSA. I am curious if I can apply for SSI for my daughter. We are
unsure if she will be able to go to school because you have to inform
them of this just in case of an outbreak and I can't see her staying
home all the time. I called the school since she will be starting
later this year. They told me she may not be able to go because of the
MRSA. She has broken out over 10 times this past year but she only got
diagnosed with it about 6 months ago. Do you think that they will let
her have SSI?

I don't know about SSI but if they would prefer to be MRSA free, go back to the list of topics page and search for garlic and you will find many ways people can use garlic and garlic water to overcome MRSA and it really works but only non-irradiated garlic is effective and it must always be diluted in water otherwise it can cause severe second degree burns.

Tiffany- just curious, why can't your daughter go to school? I was told by my sons doctor, his teacher and the district school nurse that my son was required to attend school even with a current infection! We were told to just be sure to keep the MRSA spot covered with a band aid. There is no reason for your child not to go to school. I have taught him how important it is to not share food/drinks with classmates and the importance of washing his hands after using the bathroom, toughing his nose, and to not tough the mrsa spots.

I hate this thing...Less than a year ago I thought I had gotten bitten
by a spider. It was not until July/August that I found out that what
I really had was MRSA. I was in hospital for a week and received a
decolonization treatment. It seemed to work until I got really sick
with the flu/bronchitis this past holiday season. Once again the MRSA
came back.. My question if this makes life impossible at times why is
this not covered as a disability? I have been in and out of ERs, docs
office, hospital, etc because of this. I feel so fatigued when I get
sick. What else is there to do? And can a company deny benefits to a
employee whom had to leave job due to bad health?

David Collier -

Just be sure to get garlic that has not been irradiated. Irradiated garlic has no antimicrobial power.

I am sitting in my bed with a heating pad on my face. I was one class away from entering the Nursing program. I decided to get a job in the food service department at the hospital to expose myself. I had constant contact with patients and 2 monthes in, it started. I started getting abscesses on my face and the sores started to occur. I then got MRSA outbreak on my nose. The hospital wouldnt allow me to work while i had outbreaks and soon enough i had to miss classes and was spending more on hospital bills then i was brining in at work. I eventually had to quit because i wasn't allowed to work and everytime i would go back to work, i would get an outbreak. I am so frustrated! I didnt get to finnish my classes and lost my financial aid as well. Obviousely i am changing my major because i cant be a nurse. I dont know where i go this but i was always so careful at work, but sometimes the staff wouldnt put the isolation dressings on the doors and i would go into a room of people with MRSA - cellulitis and wouldnt be informed of it. Now, im stuck at home while my husband works and have no energy at all. It brings me to tears. I got sober 4 years ago and changed my life and now im stuck at home, exhausted for no reason. I did start essential oil treatments as a test run and i experienced some relief. I dont want to keep putting anti biotics in my body. As soon as we have extra money im going to get more to do more extensive treatments. I also have psoriasis and saw it clear up super quickly. If anyone is interest: i used dottera essential oils but you can find cheaper ones on the internet.... I put Frankinsense, oregano and melaleuca on my feet. Then put on socs. An hour later i did on guard, lemon and lavendar application on my feet and put the socs back on. I did this twice a day. I will try the Garlic as mentioned...ive heard of that before. thanks for letting me vent, it has been an emotional journey.

Surgery. The private hospital my doctor uses (why I don't know) did a
routine check for MRSA during Pre Admission Testing. This test was
positive, so they say I am a carrier since I do not have sores. I am
using a medicine in my nose and a wash twice a day until surgery. I am
now wondering if I should have surgery. The surgery is on my foot, all
my toes moved and repaired from something that has caused them to deform
the past 5 years. Am I looking at some real problems. I just don't
Thanks for listening. I am dumbfounded by the test results.

I've had mrsa since October of 2012. I too thought it was a spider bite or
something like that. I had the first spot lanced and worked on and also took
bactrim for the antibiotic. Everything was fine for 2 weeks and then several more
spots started to show. In other words the bactrim didn't work. Since then I've tried
manuka honey, colloidal silver, phenomenal water for 2 1/2 months, ordered
linezolid online, and went back to the doc for more bactrim. None of these
worked. I finally heard from some mrsa forum to use hibiclens in the shower and
cut sugar almos completely from your diet. I started this plan and 4 weeks into it
I've only had one small bump and it went away in two days. If you haven't tried it
yet USE HIBICLENS. You can buy it at cvs and Walgreens. I thought this wasn't
ever gonna go away for me either and it may not have forever but at least now I
can keep it under control with hibiclens. I can at least sit down in my car and not
be in pain from the abcess on my ass. I love beer but am doing without because
its worth it to get rid of mrsa. Try hibiclens and a no sugar no carb diet people.
Good Luck
