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.

I am a 54 year old female and have had MRSA for the last 4 months, thought to a caused by a bite from a Brown Recluse spider. 3 to 4 days after I finish an antibiotic, I start showing signs of MRSA again. I have had boils, sinus, throat/tonsil problems and now seem to be affected in my bones and joints. Recently, all joints of my arms, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are very painful. It almost feels as though my entire arm and leg BONES hurt as well. (I have had MILD Osteoarthritis for about 15 years in my knees and ankles but nothing like this!) Does anyone know if MRSA can affect bones and/or joints? My doc is sending me to an infectious disease doctor but I have not had the appointment yet. Thanks for any information you can share with me! God Bless you all! Carole

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

I am a 24 year old female. I have been dealing with MRSA outbreaks
on my skin for almost 7 years now. It has gotten to the point that
the only antibiotics I can take are Zyvox(pill) and
Vancomyacin(IV). I am either resistant or allergic to all other
antibiotics. I now have to hospitalized for at least 4 days every
time I get another outbreak. My insurance doesn't like to approve
the Zyvox for some reason. It has gotten to the point where I
basically almost always have it. I feel like shit all the time. It
is affecting my personal life, my relationship and my work. I have
missed so much work being in the hospital I am afraid I am going
to lose my job. I don't believe I am healthy enough to work full
time as I always have an array of symptoms from the MRSA and other
health issues as well. Who wants to hire someone that is going to
be in the hospital once a month? I feel terrible to put all the
pressure on my boyfriend when it comes to money. He's been great... read more

Cannabinoids from Cannabis Kills MRSA!

I contracted MRSA in 2007, during a Emergency Room visit, and two other times in 2008. I'm fully aware of the limitations of today's antibiotics, and pharmaceutical companies lack of interest in developing new antibiotics.

I read in an article that some of the cannabinoids in cannabis have antibiotic properties, however in order to get too them they have to be extracted into a concentrate, in a certain way.

I made this extracted cannabis concentrate for an antimicrobial topical, and yes, it works!!! I gave some to someone I know who got MRSA on her arm, applied it three times a day, and in two weeks was completely healed with no side effects.

For folks in medical marijuana states I would suggest you get a cannabis card and seek out dispensaries that sell the concentrated cannabis oil.(it looks like grease)

How I treated my bacterial issue with copper
Posted by Eric Olson
Last Reply January 13, 2017 at 14:37
Started January 13, 2017 at 13:53
Before antibiotics were invented copper and silver were being studied as methods of treating bacterial infections. This arose from a number of factors, including an instance where 200,000 copper workers were the only group that didn't catch cholera during a major outbreak :

My issue is antibiotic resistance in secondary bacterial infections I always get as a result of the common cold. I am sharing this information with this community because all bacteria, including MRSA, appear to react in a similar way to copper: they die. For an example of this in MRSA see:

I am a 200 pound, 6'6 male with asthma. The last time I got sick it took three months and five different antibiotics to cure me. I w... read more

MRSA Conspiracy Theory
Posted by Tom
Last Reply January 13, 2017 at 10:37
Started February 15, 2007 at 21:39
I was doing some research on MRSA and found reports that Chlorine is a very effective killer of MRSA.

Also that one of the reasons MRSA is getting so hard to cure is that it mutates and gets stronger each time a substance doesn't kill "them all".

What if... one of the reasons that MRSA is becoming an epidemic is because of chlorinated public water supplies?

They say that it was put in the water to kill bacteria and other pathogens...

but that it is not in high enough quantities to harm humans.

Perhaps it is not killing all of the Staph germs... but just growing stronger and stronger strains until they are too strong for the immune system to combat any longer?

This effect could be happening on the skin from showering and bathing... and

internally from drinking it.

Has anyone looked into this possibility?

Maybe there is something to the old saying, "There must be something in the water."

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 Brain
Posted by Gina

Started September 10, 2008 at 18:18
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?

Bad taste in mouth with MRSA

My wife is a nurse in a major hospital. She was told she has MRSA after surgery to open her sinuses. She has also had lung disease in the past. She washes her sinuses out twice a day with a pump and saline water. Now all the time she has a really bad taste in her mouth. It is very bad with a sweet taste. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS BAD TASTE IN THEIR MOUTH?
The Sunday after Christmas I took her into the emergency room. She had an outbreak on the end of one of her fingers. She was given an IV antibiotic. They said this was for all other staff infections but not for MRSA. She was told to watch her finger. If it didn’t get better it was MRSA. Two doctors and two nurses worked with her. Not one of them used precautions. We informed them at the start that she had MRSA.
The hospitals in the US are very lax with this bug. There are other countries that now screen every person for MRSA before they are included in the general population.

Dry Needling - MRSA
Posted by Dewey
Last Reply December 28, 2016 at 23:14
Started December 28, 2016 at 16:25
I acquired MRSA from a Dry Needling session with a Physical Therapist. I won't go into all that I have been through - most of hit has already been shared in the Forum. I just wanted people to be aware of this procedure that is gaining popularity which is, they take a filament needle and insert it into a muscle - looking for a trigger response. Essentially it breaks the pain cycle and sends a message to the brain to release the tight muscle(s). I had been getting these sessions for 3 months...until after one session and in 24 hours an abscess was apparent at the dry needling site. I've never had any skin conditions in my entire life. 4 months later I am in the struggle. The Dry Needling procedure works...but there are risks...I am pretty sure I signed a waiver so I have no recourse. Be aware of this procedure the outcomes that could happen.
