My wife has a very stubborn abscess/boil that has been opened up by the doctor two times but it won't heal!! Tried manuka on it and now it's draining again but not healing...I am trying turmeric on it with the concoction the site suggests..coconut oil, black pepper etc. I will see if it works but this stubborn one won't heal... Do you have any suggestions? She has been on multiple antibiotics and doxy helped it but as soon as her period comes, it flares up again! Also has major yeast infections from it!!Any suggestions??? Need help.

Better But With Side Effects

A question about turmeric. With hundreds of positive reviews, I tried turmeric both orally and topically to treat a very painful bump/boil. The next day the boil opened and lots of pus and blood came out. This originated expansion, and I got two other boils side by side overnight. So painful! My question is, why for some was there a cure in a day or three, and I got an infection which worsened? My experience shows a plus side and a negative one. The plus side is that indeed, turmeric works very fast to make boils open. It increases body heat and ability to expel toxins. The other thing is, when this happens, what can we do to stop the pus/bacteria that comes from spreading? I cleaned and drained as well as I could but it did not stop this.

Now I am better. A doctor had to open the three boils and clean the area. And I made dietary changes (no sugar or fast carbs plus I take some vitamins) Any comments or answers to my doubts are very appreciated!

Worked Temporarily

Turmeric is great in the beginning for boils, But, please note that it does take more doses more frequently once they continue to come back in time !I have been getting them 2004 and each summer they get harder and harder to treat ! The first year they were surgically removed because they were so deep and also treated with an antibiotic called Minocycline. This helped temporarily, but once when I was out of town on a weekend, and unable to find medical attention, I tried the turmeric cure from this site. It was miraculous for about 9 mos., but then they came back the next summer extremely aggressive !! It took me larger doses,(2 heaping tablespoons 3 times daily), and they were taking longer to heal, or would just stay down in size without going away for weeks. That much turmeric will have your stomach feeling quite sick along with diarhia !! I finally went back to the doctor and back on the Minocycline, but it also took longer than the last time using it to clear up the staph infection. My son is almost 4, and he too suffers with them, but his immune system is much stronger than mine. He is autistic and the taste of the turmeric will make him vomit, so when he gets one coming out, I just cook something for him with the turmeric in it ! Preferably something in red gravy, (like spagetti & meat sauce). He has never been on antibiotics and I'm trying to keep it that way, but as soon as the turmeric cures one of his boils, another one surfaces in another place on his little body. The doctor told me that it is getting so out-of-hand that pretty soon there will be nothing they can do for it. He told me that the staph that is out there now is a product from our own modern medicine - a combination of many antibiotics produced that have built up a resistency and immunity to everything they have to fight it. It is a growing and most aggresive bacteria that becomes increasingly immune to anything. Sorry to say it, but he may very well be right. I wish the turmeric would continue to work for me, but the staph is starting to get immune to it as well. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!
