MRSA + Secondary Fungal Infections

I posted this: http://www.mrsa-forum-usa.com/index.asp?forumID=25406&subject=Ingrown-Hairs..MRSA? in late May this year. Since that time I'v had a couple very small pimples that subsided quickly and currently a dime sized one on my stomach. This week I received information from a knowledgeable source that these pimples may be due to a secondary fungal issue after healing from MRSA bacterial primary infection. I had never heard of this before so I researched online and found this information: https://www.staph-infection-resources.com/blog/secondary-yeast-candida-fungal-infections/ . I am in no way affiliated with the author and I posted that link because it's the only related information I can find concerning secondary fungal infections and MRSA.

I've been searching for answers for a while and seems like the info described in that link may well be what my body is experiencing for the past few months. Anyone care to give an opinion or share knowledge on this?

Man -

Shouldn't be a problem with garlic water baths since allicin also kills fungal pathogens and yeast infections as well as bacteria - that's why it is defined as an antimicrobial.

If you can find any Garlic Macerate Oil (NOT STEAM-DISTILLED garlic oil, which most garlic oil in the USA is, as that has far lesser properties than garlic macerate oil and an entirely different manufacturing process.) on the internet or at a drug store, buy some as it has similar properties to allicin, though less volatile but is fat-soluble and so cannot get into the bloodstream but upon application kills surface pathogens and upon soaking into the skin, winds up in the lymphatic system, where it continues its work until what's left of it eventually gets filtered out by the liver and shunted into the common bile duct on its way to the small intestine for eventual excretion.

Yet more reasons to investigate garlic water baths.

Thanks Mr. Anderson.

I am pretty much in the mindset that dieting (suggested in the page I linked previously) restrictions and garlic baths is the best approach.

Would cold pressed garlic oil work?

The majority of my infections are single hair furuncles that do not fill with pus and subside with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide treatments

Cold pressed garlic oil would have a different taste than steam-distilled garlic oil or garlic macerate oil but would have mostly Diallyl Di Allyl Disulfide (DADS) which has some medicinal value for some things but is nowhere near as active as Allicin or Di Allyl Tri Sulfide (DATS) or the DATS and Ajoene, which is found only in garlic macerate oil and how much depends on what variety and cultivar of garlic is used to make the oil and the age/clove state of the garlic at the time the oil is made. I've even seen studies that show organically-grown garlic to have greater medicinal potential than the same cultivars of garlic grown with standard agricultural chemicals by virtue of creating more allicin than them.

Cold press garlic oil does have some long range health benefits but does not contain really powerful medicinal properties. It is processed down to the mellower-flavored DADS but then it is made and intended to maximize taste qualities not medicinal properties - two different worlds usually but it may be all you need, who is to say? On the other hand, it might add to the problem; who knows as there are no studies on it.

Each of us who desperately seek self-treatment with herbal folk remedies does so at our own personal risk, just as we do in mainstream medicine. Nobody else but us suffers the consequences of our decisions but us, just as no one else enjoys the benefits of making successful decisions, either. Ultimately, it all comes down to the choices we make and the results we experience.

Good luck to you.

Thank you Mr. Anderson.

The local farmer's market (central west coast Florida) sells live, non-irradiated garlic but when I pick some up last week it was old and didn't take long to get mushy. You've stated on other threads that July, August, September is peak garlic season so I'm hoping they have fresh, live garlic recently harvested.
