Ted Can You Hear ME? I am desperate, please Help! I caught a Staph Infection on my thigh, took Cipro and 5 months later 2 boils showed up on my labia and in my groin near the perineum. I went to my GYNO who did a pap and came out positive for MSRA in the Vagina. I don't know how I got it, but the boils continue to show up in the outter area especially the labia. I've tried turmeric, colloidal silver, garlic and these did not help. I read on Earthclinic about acai berry. After drinking the acai berry juice the boils disappeared almost immediately the next day and also Milk of Magnesia applied helped them go down, but when I stop drinking acai berry, the boils come back. I have been drinking acai for 3 months just so the boils don't come back. But, how do I permanently cure the MRSA in the vagina? Is there a topical that I can soak in a tampon and insert in vagina to kill it on the inside, such as H202 or Milk of Magnesia or Baking Soda solution or even soaking a tampon in acai berry and inserting it? I need a topical solution to go inside, is this possible without doing any harm to myself? I believe in everything you say about Alkilinity. But what to do for MRSA inside your CANAL?? Please HELP ME, because No Doctors around here can! I know you can HELP, PLEASE!!!
I gave birth to my son in 1/2007 and contracted mrsa in my blood and almost died. My son also contracted mrsa a few days after his birth on his skin. My son and I were in the hospital for a month after his birth. I ended up getting 5 additional surgeries to the c-section. I was on a wound vac and vanco and batriband, minocyclin, batrim...I tried so many drugs and never felt right and the mrsa would always come back, I was on antibiotics and IV's for 7 months and nothing worked. I was getting so frustrated!
Then, I started looking at natural cures and tried many. Finally, I found something that worked. Acai berry juice, Aloe vera juice and Udo's Choice probiotics. Take 2 oz Acai berry juice with 1oz aloe juice in the am and then again in the pm. I started out taking 12 probiotics a day 3 in the am, pm, after dinner and before bed. The first few days my body flushed out - try to start doing this on a weekend or when you are not to busy bc you will be in the bathroom for at least a day. Do this regimen for 2 weeks, then lower the juices to 1 oz of each in the am and pm and slowly reduce the probiotics (12 to 11...). If the mrsa comes back add an extra probiotic (11 to 12). After everything I tried this was the only thing that worked for me! It has been a year that I have been doing this regimen, I still drink the juices and I am taking 6 probiotics a day.
Please let me know if this works for you, if you have any questions you can e-mail me at [email protected]

after suffering for 7 years, with an abcess, below the groin, and having tried everything, it would always come back leaving me in agony,
i searched the internet for all sorts of treatments, rather than take anti biotics which turn my skin yellow. i stumbled upon a site called activated oxygen i phoned them up here in the uk, and bought a pot of activated oxygen gel. i can only describe this as a miracle, i am currently on my third pot of activated oxygen, my abcess which had 5 holes, is about 97% cleared up to date, and this is only applying it topically. I am not sure if you can post links but google it and you have all the info there, it's amazing stuff.
If you shave under your arms then I would stop and just trim the hair with scissors. If you are used to shaving this can be quite a change but a worthwhile one. If using deodorants try instead some of the suggestions on this site. Including the one about using 'no soap' just a washer and water, personally I have found it remarkable, even though it goes against all that we are taught about cleanliness. Try and wade through the pages on MRSA here on EC for the success stories. I would definitely be using turmeric (with added pepper for absorption enhancement and as it contains both fat soluble and water soluble components you need a little fat with it not just water to get the best results from it). Also iodine applied in the armpits occasionally, and oregano oil (1-3 drops diluted in a teaspoon of ev olive oil) applied also in the armpits occasionally will help. I would also not shave the legs as this aggravates folliculitis and try the olive oil with the oregano oil. Good luck.
I have been Apple Cider Vinegar for my 'follicultius' on my legs and it has been hardening and seems to be going away. I just recently had to have surgery on my breast from a mastitis infection that turned out to be mrsa. I am researching everything I can in order to keep it from coming back.
I FIRMLY belive in the ACV for MRSA 1 teaspoon in a bottle of water 2 times a day has kept it at bay ACV applied directly to affected area also is very helpful.

I had the same problem with MRSA sometime ago and nothing would cure it, I even went to the hospital for about 3 days with heavy medication (Zyvox) and morphine, yeah, really, morphine for the pain. It was not until I found this great site that I tried the turmeric and organic apple cider vinegar to balance my ph. And it worked!!! I took the turmeric and the ACV for about 3 months though, I was decided to get rid of it. About two months ago (I did not have a sign of it, not even a pimple) I got a small boil, very small though, on my knee, but it went away rather quickly. This stuff works!
Had mrsa f/5 yrs!!!! Boils like giant eggs!!! Prayed f/answer, tried everything, then the answer... On the internet!!! They r now finding mrsa in cheap cuts of pork!!!

Hi my name is Gina,
4 months ago my brother has lesions appear all over his arms and on his under arms. The lesions were painful and in about a week the lesions filled with pus. The pay was unbearable, then my mom got them under her arms. They both went to the doctor and had them popped, lanced and drained and were diagnosed with MRSA which mimicks a staph infection but is much worse as it is a disease. We were devastated. I never got them until 2 months ago I must of shaved dry and 4 bumps appeared under my arms. Point is it doesn't matter how clean you are anyone can get it. Some remedies that have helped me are ones that I've experimented with. I will no longer be a victim of this infection!
Baking soda is 99.9 effective guaranteed once u start to suspect the head of the boil. Mix a teaspoon of water with baking soda till it is like a paste and apply it all around the infected area! Leave it for 30 min. Then gently clean it with a clean light colored (white) towel.
Wear only white cotton shirts while the wound is draining; as dark colors may bleed and cause a spread. This also applies to other infected areas. For example, if there is a boil on your back or on your buttocks wear light clothing, shorts, t-shirt etc. As far as pain relief to be honest you need to make best friends with naproxen or Ibuprofen. Buy a bath puff sponge and when taking a warm shower wash the infected area and massage it with the scrubber. Do not stick needles in it as you can cause blood clots, trust me it happend twice to me.
Just wanted to let you know that I have been having steady relief using honey, baking soda & a pinch of salt on my boils and tiny, pimply, bump-rash (associated with MRSA) by daily application with bandaids. Growing up we used baking soda-salt to extract poison from stings and bites. Hearing of the water-extraction capabilities of honey led me to add it to the formula with good success. This isn't an isolated remedy however because I've also been eating garlic sandwiches with herbs!

I have been having outbreaks for about 3 years now. I've found that when the sores are at their worst a HOT(as tolerable!)bath in a tub full of clear water and 1/2 cup of Clorox for 20-30 minutes speeds up the healing process. Afterwards invest in Lysol-and lots of it! Wash and change bedding daily and spray everything you touch with Lysol. In about 10 days you can rid all surfaces in your' home, negating the spread of MRSA infection!

I spend all of 2013 fighting a MRSA infection of my lower leg that I caught in the hospital being treated for a spot of cellulitis. I was able to finally cure it with Bentonite clay which is largely magnesium. I thought this was neat because it had none of the drawbacks of antibiotic use.

When I had mrsa I had no idea what a boil even looked like. I had it confused with acne and so I didn't know what was happening - a gal I worked with told me. I googled like crazy and bleach saved me. I had a huge hot swollen boil in my thigh bigger than a half dollar. 8 could feel it's heat through jeans!
I put bleach on it. I bathed in a bathtub with half a cup of bleach in it. I bleached my white clothes and used hot water and white vinegar on the others.
local raw honey in the wound(didn't know about Manuka then... it's far superior). Tumeric milk drinks.
I changed my pants every day (boils were located on buns and thigh). Never reused a towel. Washed sheets a few times a week in hot water and bleach (invest in white cotton).
If you can still find concentrated old fashioned Lysol that is the bomb to kill the staph in your home.
2 years later when suffering hyper thyroid I got a boil on my chin and my breast. Profylactuc antibiotics from my surgery brought the to a head. However the honey healed them with no scar.
I used honey in my nostrils each night for 30 days... like they recommend with antibiotic ointments. However I used a us pharmacy brand Manila wound gel style. It is amazing and less than $10 for a tube that lasts forever.
I wish I had know about grapefruit seed extract then ... it cured my mastitis in 24 hours and cured my uti last week.
Blue Light Frequency 405-475nm
Someone in health sciences told me it can take up to 36 months for MRSA to exit the system. I had an initial infection last August, and treated successfully for that, but at length and with a good deal of discomfort, using iodine, hydrogen peroxide, honey and turmeric.
While I was suffering, I read about the effectiveness of blue light in the visible frequency (non-ultraviolet) of 405-475nm on MRSA in vitro. I ordered a hand held light from a manufacturer on AliBaba. It arrived after the infection cleared.
However I had a chance recently to use it and it has been 100% effective. When I feel a boil beginning to sprout, when it is still just an itchy red bump, I hit it with 12 minutes of blue light.
In almost every case 12 minutes is enough, even if the boil has erupted. Itching and pain subsides, if there is a head forming it is cleared, and redness resolves within a couple of days.
Some are a little more stubborn and require more than a single 12-minute hit. I will hit a lesion two or three times - the worst one needed 5 hits, each one day apart.
Amazing - the lesion clears and when the skin finally resolves it eventually sloughs off to reveal the pit where the bacteria lived.
Have had a kind of a rash of these small boils since the warm weather started but everything is under control. If you need to find a blue light google "acne light" or "Blue light 405nm".
MRSA is apparently staph infected amoebas: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/02/060228085706.htm
Ted: In one topic, you said borax kills amoebas. Other natural insecticides are Selenium and Sulfer and Organo-phosphates and neo-nicotines(B vitamins?)
Seems like you use a lot of this stuff for many ailments. Perhaps Borax should be required in a staph treatment?
ps. How long does it take to kill an ameoba in a test tube with borax... and what concentrations?
