[WARNING!] People who are susceptable to MRSA and boils shouldn't use cornstarch-based body powders. Why: because cornstarch is a perfect growth medium for staph, and it is my contention that the use of cornstarch-based body powders has been a contributing factor is the rise of staph infections in general. But the more staph infections there are, the more likely one is to eventually get a resistant form, and who wants to play those odds?
p.s. Staph can cause boils without neccessarily being antibiotic resistant.

[YEA] I have had 2 cases of a MRSA infection where the doctors didnt know anything, gave me antiobiotics, and then cut and drained them. I haven't had one in 1.5 years after cutting out the majority of sugar from my diet. I take acidophilus in the morning, try to eat limited processed foods and as little as preservatives and sugars as possible. No soda, candy, chips, ect. I havent another infection and feel alot healthier.Replied by Worried

[YEA] I have found with MRSA the most important thing to eliminate pain and to promote healing is to get the boil opened up as soon as possible. The best, fastest and cheapest way to do this is by taking regular soaking baths in epsom salt. Also, take oil of oregano 2 or 3 times a day. I usually take 3 to 5 drops in a half a glass of orange juice. The juice masks the taste of the oil. I prefer to use DoTerra Essential oils as my trusted brand of oils. They have many other oils that you can use as well but Oregano has always done the trick for me.
Garlic Treatment for MRSA
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Garlic - 1 Clove
Eating a clove of raw garlic daily can help kill a staph infection from the inside. You can also crush the garlic into a paste and apply it to a boil for 10-20 minutes at a time, 2-3 times a day. Don't keep it on any longer than that or you will burn your skin.

Hi. I have a MRSA infection just above my elbow. I have been on antibotics for about 2 months and its just about gone. Its a closed wound but doesnt seem to want to go completely away. The area is also pretty much flat just light red in color. Ive been applying silver gel to it for about 1 month, but dont know if its doing any good since the MRSA wound is closed up. So last night I applyed garlic I crushed and apllyed it to the Mrsa wound for about 8 hours. When I woke up and removed the garic the wound had indentation on it where the garlic was applyed and now the Mrsa wound is bright red almost like a burn, and slightly raised. Can someone please tell me what happened?Replied by Naomi

[YEA] I went to the hospital last week for something that I thought was an insect bite. My result came back MRSA. Strong garlic pill crushed in coconut oil is working for me. I'm on a pillician also. I prayed to God for His help and He has answered. Thank you LordPosted by Mommy V (Washington, D.C., Usa) on 08/12/2011
[YEA] My family (self, hubby, children, father, mother-in-law, sister, niece, nephew... ) suffered from recurrent MRSA skin infections for several years. At the worst of it, my husband had multiple boils the size of baseballs over his legs and backside. My sister and her 2-yr-old daughter went through half a dozen types of antibiotics over the course of a year, and even after resistance tests the MRSA would recur a month or two later. We saw infectious disease doctors, pediatriciants, naturopaths... We disinfected everything over and over. We eliminated sugar, white flour, preservatives, dyes, and MSG from our diets. (We lost a lot of weight and my allergies cleared up, but the MRSA kept returning.)
One night, after hours of prayer, I stumbled across a page by Bob Anderson (garlic farmer) on the MRSA Forum USA. He explained that while the allicin in garlic is potent enough to destroy MRSA on contact, it does not survive in stomach acid and therefore doesn't reach the skin when injested. He recommended bathing in garlic water. Sure enough, within a week my husband and both of my boys had clear skin!! In the 4 months since we tried garlic baths, my husband has had only one recurrence (which happened after we stayed a week in the home of someone else who had MRSA) and one garlic bath cleared up the boil overnight. WOW! What a relief! Praise God, whose "medicine" is so brilliantly complex (and free from side-effects).
1. Crush 4-6 cloves of non-irradiated garlic (look for white/green sprout in middle of each clove)
2. Let stand 30-90 minutes to allow allicin to develop.
3. Add garlic to warm bath. Submerge as much of the body as possible.
4. Soak for an hour or two, two or three times a week.Replied by Mommy V
