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?

MRSA in bloodstream

Hello All.
I am wondering if anyone has ever had MRSA in their bloodstream, and if so, how are you doing now? I pray no one knows of anyone that died from this. My husband just had blood drawn to test for it. His health is declining, and I'm so worried. His symptoms are, frequent lowgrade fevers, chills, shaking, joint pain/swelling, loss of strength. Some of these could be contributed to by his Cauda Equina Syndrome, but he's progressively getting worse. Any advice appreciated.

Possible MRSA Infection - Bob Anderson

This topic is directed towards Bob Anderson; I was reading much of
your advice on healing MRSA with garlic and I would like your opinion
on what I'm dealing with now.

I had a skin biopsy done for a mole and it eventually started getting
yellow pus. I was applying triple antibiotic and I read some advice
online that the area should be washed, so I did just that which I
think caused it to spread!

After washing the area, I woke up the next morning to see welts under
my skin in a pattern near the incision site. I started treating it
naturally and was taking garlic by eating it, but just today applied
garlic directly onto the area. I took the gauze off tonight and saw
oozing from some of the welts, but what alarmed me is that there are
large areas of red spread around the bumps, leading me to think it
turned into cellulitis. In one of the areas, the skin looks bleached!
Could this be the effects of the garlic? Could the garlic have caused
the redness and n... read more

Kai - I was unable to answer your question on the other thread because of a forum glitch so I generated a new thread to help you find the answers you are looking for. Please go back to the list of topics page and search the forum for garlic water and you will find a large thread dedicated to these exact questions. You won't have to read all 60 pages of the topic but everything you asked is covered in detail in the first few pages of very useful information.

Hope this helps.

However; this time of year fresh non-irradiated garlic is hard to find because last year's crop has already passed its usable lifespan and this year's crop is still three months away so garlic powder, not garlic salt but garlic powder should work as well. A way to be sure the garlic powder is potent, place a few grains on the tongue and see how hot it tastes. If it makes you want to spit it out immediately then it is good. If it tastes garlicky but not hot to the taste then it will not work. It has t... read more

Crushed Raw Garlic vs. Garlic Pills

Crushed raw garlic versus garlic pills and oils

Crushed raw garlic (CRG) and garlic water made from it both kill staph on contact; all staph, including MRSA and is the first line of defense in limiting the spread of MRSA. Staph, including MRSA cannot become immune to CRG because of the way it works.

CRG is the most effective weapon against staph because it can be combined with water and applied in many creative ways to bring its antibiotic power to where the infection is. If the infection is in the colon, garlic water can be administered as an enema while lying on the left side to kill staph in the colon.

You can soak in a bathtub of warm garlic water for a couple of hours and let it seep in through the skin. Not only does it kill any bacteria on the skin but the skin becomes one big transdermal application medium for delivering garlic into the body where it can enter the capillaries and even the lymphatic system and maybe do a little good before the bodies own defens... read more

successly treated MRSA

Hi there. I know this will gross you all out, but I successly cleared a long running MRSA infection, with Urine Therapy in just 2 wks. It was totally unresponsive to antibiotic creams. Id read two books on Urine Therapy, and at last in desperation, having tried everything else, decided to try this strange treatment. It worked! Eleven days later I have beautiful skin. I was overjoyed! All I did, was apply my own urine to my skin and leave it on. I did this 4 times a day. The first week, it looked better every day, then the last 4 days it looked much worse, but I perserved. Then on the 12th morning I stopped, and the whole thing just cleared up beautifully over the next two days. I did some research and found that the urea in urine protects against the proteins that staph produces to ensure their survival. Not only is urine anti-bacterial, but protects your own good bacteria, so the infection doesn't resurge when you stop treatment. Your own urine contains all the antibodies your body... read more

There are many well meaning opinions concerning breast milk contaminated with MRSA bacteria... leaving mom/etc. in a quandary attempting to weigh value vs. risk once identified. The studies below are meant to assist in the serious decision of whether to continue breastfeeding, or not.

Elizabeth -

Your little one’s experience breaks my heart. I do not know where you gathered the presence of mind to push for breast milk testing… brilliant that you did!

A study of interest.
["OBJECTIVE. To determine a potential source of MRSA colonization and infection among preterm infants in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) using molecular analysis of breast milk samples.

DESIGN. Case report, outbreak investigation.

RESULTS. Preterm triplets were delivered at 26 weeks’ gestation via cesarean section when routine active surveillance for MRSA was performed for all infants in a NICU. Surveillance consisted of swabbing the throat, nose, and umbilicus (TNU) weekly. Although infants A ... read more

MRSA in inner ear

I ahve been on various antibiotics for 9 months. Currently I am on SMZ-TMP-DS-oral and Mupirocin. The MRSA is in the bone surrounding my ear and the ear itself.

What can I expect? It seems impossible to kill this bacteria. I use an ENT doctor, should I try an Infectious Disease Specialist?

Please advise.

Thank you

Hi Bob, that boil is back with the pain and inflammation, the doctor
gave me another 21 days of the antibiotic, rather than to take another
21 days since the first one apparently didn't do anything, so I am
trying the garlic, I placed it on a gauge and cover it, left it on for
a little bit, and did it again, my question is how long will it take
for the garlic to kill this MRSA? If I need to use the garlic full
strength I would do this without diluting it. I love this post, I am
learning so much about this MRSA. Thank you for all of the information
on here.

Raw Garlic vs. Garlic Powder in Winter

Last Reply April 18, 2017 at 15:12

Last month I got a hold of some not-to-hot but non-irradiated
garlic. Did some baths. Seemed to help. Running low now and have
started using store bought garlic powder marked 'un-irradiated,
organic' etc. I get the STRONG garlic smell when it has been added
to water and has set for awhile but, from what I can tell, it
isn't helping as much as the raw stuff. Even after adding more.

I've found some Russian Red organic garlic that I'm thinking of
buying BUT what I'm wondering is THIS: from what I've read there's
a shelf life with garlic's allicin even before it's
chopped/grated/etc, so is garlic that was harvested in the Fall
still going to be good this time of year (Febuary) or should I
just stick to the powder until I find one with better results?

Thanks for the info in advance.

This metod worked for my family. First decolonize your body through special
bath, decolonize your nostrils through antibiotics cream, etc....Then, take
supplements like vitamins, minerals, probiotics, omega 3, etc.... make your
immune system strong. MRSA is everywhere you cannot decolonize your
environment you can only decolonize your body and make your immune system
strong. Good luck and best wishes to all!!!

I was diagnosed with MRSA about 2 weeks ago, and was given
antibiotic and a creme to apply to the sore I had, my question is,
why is that area as to where the MRSA was, is still very sore, it
feels like at times that a match is being place inside my skin, and
the pressure feels like, something is trying come out, I can't even
lean on the arm. The MRSA was just above my left elbow. It burns and
very tender to the touch. Sill is swollen in the area,but no more
redness. My question is, if this normal after the MRSA sore healed?
Thank you for any answers that you may give.

I am posting from Australia can't find any local mrsa forums so I will
post here.

I had recurrent mrsa skin infections from early September last year
until mid January this year.

For the first couple of months I felt fine but by about November I
started to feel tired and two lymph nodes came up in my neck.

GP got some blood work done and it was normal except for a slightly
low blood count 131 (I am male late forties base is usually about 145)

I just kept getting worse terrible left hand side pain, and
intermittent dizzy spells.

Early in the new year GP sends me for more blood work and my red blood
cell count has crashed to 116 but my iron b12 and folate are all

She orders one of those occult bleeding tests where you take stool
samples over a three day period to see if there is any blood, it comes
back negative.

She decides to leave it a couple of months and see if my blood count
picks up and says that if it doesn't she will send me to... read more

My problem is that during the time before I was diagnosed and dealing with my absess (walnut sized pocket under my arm full of puss) and up to right now my shoulder and arm are in constant achy pain. The worst is my bicep - I still do not have sull use of my arm. Typing sends aches up my arm. Is this from the MRSA? Is it eating away at my muscles? What can I do?

Large staph infection - Bob Anderson

My sister has been battling staph for a few months now and we got on top
of most of the infections with tee tree oil and a few other natural
products but 2 were persistent and were not closing up anymore. My
sister has also been fighting lupas for a number or years and due to
this was in a low metal state and decided to turn to the doctors. In the
matter of 5 days the infection went from the size of facial pad to most
of her calve so we removed her immediately because she risked loosing
her leg. After reading this we decided to treat it with garlic and
within 24 hours the wound was scabbed over but there was a lot of dead
tissue around the wound. After a few days of applying garlic and taking
baths we stopped the garlic treatment and starting using raw honey and
taking the garlic orally. After a week and a half the wound is still
wearing and looks like a part of it is still active. Is it possible that
some of the staph is still alive but on the same wound 3... read more

Does anyone know of any connections between a bad mrsa infection, AND/OR it's treatment via large doses of antibitics, and subsequent auto immune type symptoms that could resemble diseases like gout or rheumatoid arthritis?

Thanks in advance.
