Recurrent MRSA? Advice please...

Last fall I developed a huge painful lump on my buttocks under the skin. It seemed to get worse and worse. We were without water for several days and I think bacteria got into the area because I had an itchy rash already. I ended up at the doctor and they just looked at it, didn't lance it and put me on doxycycline without any cultures. I started researching immediately. Within several days, the rash had spread to the other lower buttocks area. They were both hard and painful. I ended up in the ER and told them they needed to be lanced. They lanced one side, cultured and I came back next day. They put me on clindamycin for 2 weeks and antibiotic cream. Cultures showed the bacteria to more sensitive. They ended up lancing the other side as well. 3 weeks later, the area healed well. All they said was it was staph and that it responded better to clindamycin than doxycycline.
Fast forward, @ year later, I have had problems with left side, always in the area that was lanced. I will get small itchy bumps that pop up and light rash.(no pain and nothing like before) My primary dr. had me use the antibiotic cream and take 5 day of clindamycin. I am scared I am just making my body resistant. First, does MRSA cause itching with little bumps? Second, should I try the garlic treatment and are there other things I should do in my diet to help?

Thank you,

Miche -

Sorry, not being a doctor, I can't give you any advice. I f you read enough posts in this forum a lot of people complain of itching and bumps at first so that seems to be a common symptom. As to whether you should try the garlic water baths, that's for you and your doctors to decide.

I frequently write about the properties of natural garlic and how they change based on what kind of garlic and how the garlic is processed and used. I discuss how and why it works when used in a herbal folk remedy garlic water bath and let people and their doctos decide what, if anything to do.

Another serious consideration is antibiotic resistance and that commercial antibiotics are rapidly diminishing in effectiveness as bacteria mutate new receptors that antibiotics cannot bond with and if they cannot bond with them, they cannot kill them. The allicin formed when natural garlic is crushed does not need to bond with any receptor, it simply penetrates a bacterium and causes it to swell up and burst, killing it in a more direct way than antibiotics and garlic water kills even the most resistant forms of bacteria on contact. Bacteria cannot become resistant to garlic any more than you or I could become immune to being stabbed or blown up.

It is only a folk remedy but it works and now we know exactly why and how it works and that allows us to use it creatively to accomplish different tasks. Knowledge is power, especially in the coming antibiotic apocalypse, as some are calling it. It is definitely going to change people's lives.

As I see it, my job is to help people learn about and understand a viable herbal folk remedy that could save lives. It is up to people and their doctors to decide what to do, not me. Ultimately, we are all responsible for the decisions we make regarding our health care and educating ourselves so we an make more informed decisions.

Good luck to you.
