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?
For Amanda from Terre Haute, Indiana. I had something festering on my leg and think it may have been MRSA - from a workout room where my shins touched a piece of equipment. I immediately put cayenne powder on it and stopped the bleeding and it healed up over the next week with that one application. I think it might be worth a try to rub cayenne powder on it to see if that might not do it.
Colloidal Silver rid my friend's 6 year battle with MRSA, within 10 days!!
I love colloidal silver for sore throats but when they are accompanied by nose ulcers and that awful rawness at the very back of your nose where it meets your throat, I use virgin coconut oil on a Q-tip. I put it up my nose and also, after I spray the silver in my throat, I use a seperate Q-tip to apply to the back and top of my throat. Anywhere I can reach that feels raw and sore. It is immediately soothing (after the initial pain of touching that area and possibly gagging a little bit) and I sleep so much better and the raw soreness is so much better in the morning.
MRSA Experience--- We beat it!
On May 14th 2005, my 26 Yr old son noticed his thumb was getting very sore. No wound was visible. By Wed. the 19th, his whole hand was swolen and pulsing with pain. He went to a doctor and the doctor threw him into the hospital and they opperated that night. It was MRSA, and it was spreading from his thumb, through his palm towards his wrist. They took out a huge chunk of his thumb... about 1" square and 1/4th " deep, and ran tubes down towards his palm to try and squeeze out the rest.
I found out about it Saturday morning (the 21st) and called the hospital. They hadn't gotten all of it. He said they either had to take off his hand or he would die.
I told him to get out of there and get to my place as soon as he could. He took off with security after him!
I soaked his hand in 10 ppm Coloiodal Silver for an hour and we cleaned it out as best we could, then spread it with Bee Propolis and wrapped it up. I had him take 2oz of Coloidal Silver at 5ppm every hour and continued the daily soaking and 2oz every day. For good measure, I added 1 tsp food grade H2O2 per quart of water and had him take 4 oz of that every two hours and 2000 mg of good Vitamine C 5 times a day.
(Lets face it.. MRSA scared the s___ out of me. I was going to throw everything I could at it! I believed in the silver, but I was not going to take chances with my son's life!)
That first night he slept without pain for the first time in a week.
We continued the same treatment daily. By the 23rd, the hand swelling was gone and the thumb was already starting to fill in. It was still sore to the touch but no throbbing.
On Friday May 27th, the hole was less than half its width and very shallow. No swelling at all. A week later, he went to another doctor and the doctor refused to believe he had had MRSA or that he had the opperation any later than the 4th of May. He wrote it so in his report.
One week later he went back to the original doctor from the hospital, (the one that ordered his operation) and shocked him good. All that was left of the surgery was a small 1/4" scratch with a small band-aid on it.
Don't think he really believes what we did to cure it! My son was back to work fixing cars on June 10th. Absolutely no sign of the infection then or since!
NO bad infection can stand up to this kind of attack. Medicines may fail... but this won't!
When my gynecologist told me that my lesion was possibly MRSA since I had only a month before had a boil on my face, she said that after taking Bactrim for 10 days I should start putting Neosporin in my nose, if the MRSA infection was confirmed. I wanted to do something sooner, while still taking the Bactrim, and so researched and got some colloidal silver and put either drops or swabs of it in my nose 1-2 times a day for a week, as well as applying it to the wound with a swab. I read that it would not interfere with the antibiotics. The lesion had been lanced, and when I had my follow-up, I was healing very well. I have had no more boils yet. I can't say for sure that the colloidal silver did the trick, but from what I've read, it can be very effective with short term use (10 days or so) and if I get another boil, I will apply some directly right away.

Thanks for the great info on MRSA. Below is a link from the US Patent Office of a CS product scientifically tested against MRSA. Scroll down to "10" (near bottom of page) for detail. The CS brand tested is from American Biotech Labs (aka American Silver). It is sold under different labels. It is sold at GNC stores as "Silver Biotics". Because the link for the patent is a mile long, I suggest you go to the USPTO website and do a search for the patent number.
http://patft.uspto.gov/ Patent nbr: 7,135,195
Lastly, there is also this info: "William Beaumont Army Medical Center has proven ABL's SilverSol Technology effective at killing all three forms of leishmaniasis, which causes the "Baghdad Boils" infecting U.S. soldiers, at a concentration of just 1-2 parts per million." http://www.cliftonmining.com/aboutABL.html

Copper gluconate supplements 4 mg will get rid of it. Please share
Take copper gluconate 4mg daily as soon you feel a bump for MRSA and you will feel the pain go away within minutes and the bump will retract within minutes.
But you must stop taking the pill when it is gone.
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.

Was doing and bit of research and came across this review on Amazon. I thought it might be very was very helpful for our EC audience. Has anyone heard of this before?
On September 18, 2020 Bruce Evans wrote:
"Most people with partial and full dentures do not realize that there is a film that grows on them, a bio mass, that is a perfect medium for harmful germs etcetera. Five doctors recently discovered this bio mass and found it supported the growth of MRSA, and fungi, along with some other lesser known germs, that if inhaled could cause the wearer a potentially deadly pneumonia. Regular brushing, soaking, even denture cleaners do NOTHING to kill and remove the bio mass...it remains.
This antibiotic, chlorhexidine is one of the things proven to kill and remove the bio mass after a soaking of at least 15 minutes. We remove the denture glue with warm soapy water and then place the dentures in a denture cup filled with chlorhexidine to soak over night. There may be some blue spots remaining which will brush off or be removed with a denture tablet.
Why people are not being told this I cannot say, the papers have been published in medical journals so the data is out there. Where is there a higher incidence of denture use? Where is there a high incidence of pneumonia? Same answer: Elderly population. People are giving themselves MRSA from their dentures..."

EC: Hi Enid,
Can you please send us more info.. dosage and application instructions? Thank you!
Try not using soap, and put nothing else on your skin, unless you have to use a natural lotion to stop itching due to shaving. I've had mild, recurrent, MRSA for years. I started taking probiotics and that helped a lot. But my skin didn't completely clear up until I stopped washing my skin with soap. Any kind of soap. A research article I found goes more into depth about the skin's natural antimicrobial lipids. When you wash away those oils, you wash away your skin's natural antimicrobial defense system. Once or twice a week, take a warm ( not hot) bath or shower. I would recommend just washing your "peri-area" and your armpits with a natural soap, and just let water wash the rest, and then pat dry.
I will post the article link below. http://www.jlr.org/content/49/1/4.full.pdf+html
