I have had MRSA for over 3 years now on and off (mostly on) and I have pretty much become an expert unintentionally on which natural remedyies and over the counter products work, and which ones to avoid.
I can tell you first hand that after a boil is lanced or drained, either by you or your doctor, the best topical treatment is to hit the area with strong POVIDINE IODINE 10% applied with a qtip if the area is small, or a cotton ball for a larger area.
NOTHING KILLS MRSA BETTER THAN 10% IODINE APPLIED TOPICALLY!
Apply it 3 times a day topically very liberally and use a non stick pad to cover the wound with minmal adhesive tape.
The iodine will kill the MRSA bacteria effectively topically and will asisit in the wound drying up and healing.
Do not whatever you do - use bandaids of anykind ever on a mrsa wound though!
This is a very common problem as bandaids have chemical irritants in the adhesive which is very likely to cause a person with sensitive skin alot of problems.
Almost every brand will irritate your skin near the wound which can and often will facilitate the spread of a new sore to the nearby irritation or break in the skin.
Knowing which products over the counter to use and which antibiotics actually work are of the utmost importantance. MRSA is very strong and while I believe whole heartedly in natural cures sometimes prescription medications are neccessary when dealing w/MRSA.
There are concretely 2 things that I know of that definateily will kill MRSA and that is Iodine 10% and Manuka Honey. (EMF 10+ ATLEAST! )
Do not use them together, of course, but either of these topically are the two best remedies you will likely find anywhere.
Also I recommend Taking GARLIC supplements w/Allicin to support your immune response naturally, and doing everthing possible to raise your body's PH to as close as possible to 7.5.
Avoid sugar and all foods that are high in preservatives and processed foods especially as these types of foods actually seem to faciliate the further growth of MRSA.
If you are not allergic to Sulfa Drugs, the antibiotic "Bactrim" is very cheap and works to heal the skin wounds and boils in a great many cases. I have seen alot of successes with bactrim.
In 80% cases bactrim will work, the problem is many people are allergic to sulfa drugs and this may not be an option for some people. As a home remedy, Bathing in Bleach (1/4 cup) per bath and using antibacterial soap to wash hands etc. containing triclosan or triclocarban will also be very helpful.
Whatever you do .. do not take MRSA lightly!!! Even if your doctor doesn't seem to be worried, many doctors are ignorant about MRSA and a lot of people are dying in The U.S. as a result.
The mortality of longterm MRSA is well above 30%. The untold truth is that MRSA is reaching epidemic proportions in the Untited States.
I have read alot of good information on this site, but if you have severe MRSA you may not have the luxury of experimenting too much so you must be very careful in your treatment approaches.
Be prudent and only use tried and true remedies. I hope this helps you.
