Recently my 2 year old daughter has started developing small boils/abscess that resemble insect bites with a purulent center on her lower abdomen. They dont bust or drain, but they get red and painful to touch. Our diet has changed recently due to moving, unable to cook healthy meals. We drink alkalized water, level 3. I cant seem to get her to drink ACV for obvious reasons. I've been increasing the probiotics in her milk/juice and she takes fish oil gel capsules daily. I don't want to start her on antibiotics. I'm going to start cleaning the bumbs with ACV, maybe a ACV soaked cotton ball and band aid. I know turmeric works well for MRSA/boils but that is impossible to get into a 2 year old. How else can I get her alkaline and fight these boils?

Tumeric for eczema. My little 6 month old granddaughter was born with a red spot between her eyebrows and when she laughs or cries it puffs up. A couple of months ago, the area started to look raised and crusty. Then she started scratching it and it would bleed and this became a cycle. The doctor put her on internal and external antibiotics which cleared up the area. But a week later it started to come back. Then she started to get breakouts around the mouth, noes and one side of the face. When the spots start to clear up, it leaves the area around it white. My daughter is concerned. She took her to the doctor yesterday and was given another antibiotic ointment to use on her face. My daughter has taken her to the doctor several times and has been told the baby could have MERSA (she did not), impetigo, strep, or eczema. I am believing that this child is going to be healed and whole. I want to know whether the turmeric could be used on her face and specifically on the area between her eyebrows. Thank you.
Turmeric for Eczema
Hi, I wanted to share a remedy that worked really well on my baby's excema. When it oozes, vicco turmeric (found in any Indian store, it's a turmeric paste in a sandalwood oil base - no other ingredients) works wonders. I just tried it by chance one day and now everytime her excema flares up that's all I use. It's doesn't moisturize well but cures the oozing & flare up really fast so I use it in combination with Burts Bees baby moisturizer.

Hi Ted or anyone else .. Please I am in need of some wisdom whether to let a pediatrician administer Vit K injection to a new born baby. There are many pros and cons on line that really confuses me. Any information or knowledge will be highly appreciated. Thanks.
The Synthetic Vitamin K shot is given to infants all over America, I happen to live in a state where it is mandatory and I already know of the side effects and am dreading having to give this again to another child [as I am pregnant]. One of the side effects being jaundice. My question what are ways to detox this out of the body, for instance I have a friend whose baby developed jaundice...I am aware that breast feeding can help but is there anything the mother can give or take that will help baby remove this out of body. any information will be helpful as there are many babies suffering form this vaccine and unfortunately the govt has made it so that we no longer have a choice in whether or not we want this to be administered to our children.
Hi can anyone recommend a multi vit for my two toddlers who are dairy and soy allergic. I breastfed first for 23 months and still nursing my second. The soy allergy is a recent diagnosis and am devastated as I thought they would escape allergies (I am allergic to nuts and husband has asthma). both children were not vaccinated.
can anyone please help
My son is 3 1/2. This morning, dropping him off at school, I found a white hair in the midst of his very thick chestnut brown hair. My son was born with lots of hair and it grows very fast. I'm trying to figure out if this could be related to stress or nutrition. Any thoughts? Thanks for any answers I can get.
