I started using Manuka Honey on my outbreaks after 10 horrible months of recurring MRSA boil outbreaks, unfriendly & unhelpful doctors, painful cutting and draining. Once I received the honey I started putting a poultice of it on the boils overnight. Not a lot of honey but enough to cover the boil completely then cover it with gauze. The boils now only last 2-3 days and do not get very large. Now I need to find a way to stop getting them! At least I haven't needed antibiotics since I started using the honey which is wonderful because I became allergic to the Bactrim after 6 months of almost constant use.
Manuka honey is being used in many places (UK, Australia, New Zealand) for treatment of MRSA. One teaspoon morning and night for prevention and up to 3 tsp. once or twice a day for an internal infection. It can also be used topically to stop skin infection, 50/50 with water in an atomizer for chest infections, along with many other uses. One potential reason for its effectiveness may be the existence of small amount of naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide in the honey, although researchers put it down to "Manuka factor," an unknown active ingredient.
After reading everything on this website (and beyond) for curing staph infections - I tried it all! I did not want to go through multiple rounds of antibiotics searching for one it would not be resistant to. I tried: turmeric powder, drinking raw garlic that had been crushed and sitting for 15 mins, bathing in crushed garlic, applying crushed garlic to wound, aplying baking soda mixed with filtered water directly to the wound, applying manuka honey to boil (16 ), an alkaline diet including foods & supplements - ACV and baking soda, seaweeds, wheat grass, calcium/magnesium, and bathing in bentonite clay. I think that's it.
By far what worked best for me was:
a) applying manuka honey (go for an expensive jar - totally worth it) directly to the wound. I saw an immediate difference each time after applying for hours
b) alkaline diet and supplements. As soon as I approached the healing range my infection cleared up so fast!
The garlic applied directly stung, but didn't seem to do much. Garlic bathing helped a bit, but not as much as simply applying the honey. Baking soda applied directly dried out the wound but didn't help it heal.
Thank you everyone for all your helpful ideas!!
For MRSA - Tried antibiotics, turmeric, ..but keeps coming back until we discovered manuka honey. Mix Manuka honey with turmeric powder. Most effective treatment... my son is mrsa free for more than a year now.
I suffered from rigorous staph infection/MRSA for about a year. I thought I was dying. The antibiotics would only work for a few weeks and it would just come back harder. I had the boils on my legs and buttocks. The pain was unbearable and caused me not to work or go to school. I couldn't take the pain any longer and thought I was dying when I decided to try the master cleanse diet by stanley borroughs. Not only did it rid my body of the boils, but I never had one since. Its been 3yrs and no boils whatsoever. I was prone to boils before MRSA, I'd get them under my arms occassionally and a couple times near my pubic area. Not anymore though.
I hope this helps you the way it has helped me. I wish someone wouldve told me the miracles of the master cleanse. People are paying hundreds of dollars for antibiotics and serums that don't work when in some cases just cleansing your body can cure you. Good luck.
For those of you who consume garlic and onions as a natural antiobiotic, there is a 1000 year old text which describes the remedy which is known to be far more effective then conventional antibiotics when it was tested.
For those of you who are interested, here is the link.
I will be honest, when I come upon information such as this, I feel stronger in my convictions to solve health problems naturally.
EC: Very interesting! Thank you for sending it.
What would help with MRSA of the trachea and lungs? Also, what about the side effects of the aluminum in the milk of magnesia? Can one use another type such as magnesium? Got MRSA after a lanced boil.
Milk of Magnesia
Hello my name is Bucky and I have just been told I had MRSA. In the last few months they gave me bactrim which I am allergic to and then they gave me other antibiotics and it went away but now it is back and it is just on my legs, but it is all over my legs from my ankles to my thighs. I really hate having it and don't want to have to keep dealing with it every two months. I found this site which I think is great and have been reading on it and from what I'm learning I bought some peroxide and milk of magnesia, but exactly how am I suppose to apply this and in what combination and how often and can it be applied to an open MRSA boil?

Milk of Magnesia
Possible Milk of Magnesia MRSA Cure
Hi Everyone...I have reported elsewhere on this site that I had what I thought was jock itch(tinea cruris). And I had this problem for 7 years. I tried everything -- all the drugs, creams and antibiotics to get rid of it. Even using Ted's alkalizing remedies and using ACV topically wouldn't make a difference.
But this jock itch was a little strange. Bright red skin discolouration around my upper inner thigh and genital area which went right round to the rectal area of my bum. Like I say, a little strange, perhaps this was a form of MRSA?
In the end, after reading a post by Ted, I just dabbed full strength Milk of Magnesia(MoM) all over the MRSA area after my evening shower and went to bed. It didn't sting at all but was in fact quite soothing. Then I would leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning. This was my daily protocol. The MRSA or jock itch disappeared within 2 days, healthy skin again, unbelieveable !!
The MoM has a double action effect on bacteria/fungus. First, it has a pH of 10 -- a high enough pH to kill any bacteria, virus, fungus etc. Second, MoM is hydrophyllic -- drives away water and moisture. So the offending microbe is both attacked by the high alkalinity and, at the same time, all the moisture from within the organism is simultaneously sucked out and driven away. Result: no more MRSA.
re: MRSA -> Severe Allergic Reaction to Antibiotics -> Steroid-Induced Manic Episode. Probably a worst-case scenario, but important for other people to know about drugs that can make things much worse: http://www.nickyee.com/abscess_septra.html
Following the medical ordeal, the Prednisone induced a manic-episode that required psychiatric attention.
MRSA CURED | INGREDIENTS:
* 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (in a spritz bottle)
* Nano Silver Gel
* Antibiotic Cream
* Colloidal Silver Soap
* Baking Soda
* Activated Charcoal Capsals
* Coconut Oil
* Manuka Honey
* Silver Dressing / Bandage
* Cool Mist Vaporizer
DIRECTIONS: Use at least 3 times daily, morning and evening especially, prior to washing or showering affected area:
A. MRSA AREA WASHING & SHOWERING:
Stand in shower:
1) Generously spritz MRSA area with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide ("HP") rubbing it into site.
2) Let HP sit and bubble on MRSA site until almost dry.*
3) Take a small towel and vigorously rub MRSA site gently scrubbing old flaky skin off.*
4) Start shower or wash.
5) Use Colloidal Silver Soap and begin washing area.
a. Use a second Colloidal Silver Soap or silver gel soap and wash for non-MRSA areas all over.
b. Scrub and polish with baking soda.
c. Rinse off. Exit shower.
6) Take 1 clean towel pat dry MRSA site.
7) Spritz site with HP - rub and scrub MRSA area with towel again, gently exfoliating flaky skin, til dry.
8) Take a 2nd clean towel and pat dry non-MRSA sites.
9) Take Nano Silver Gel (Collodial Silver Gel) and Antibiotic Cream (combine) and rub all over MRSA site.
10) Cover with a (silver or manuka honey) dressing or air dry as needed.
11) Take 1 or 2 Activated Charcoal Capsals before bed
12) If necessary, add a 2 -3 capfuls of HP to Cool Mist Vaporizer and breath in as long as needed or comfortable before bedtime.
I read or work on computer and have my Vaporizer right near my face and nostrils breathing in HP vapors before. I do this for about 15 min to 1 hr. It adds oxygen to the system.
*This often stings (but not as bad as MRSA). As site cures, stinging will subside. Keep repeating at least 3 times a day as a routine prior to washing and showering. The flaky skin must be removed to not allow MRSA crevices to continue growing and expanding in them. Only use towel once.
Wash in bleach. Keep lots of clean towels on hand for this routine multiple times daily.
Ideally have one towel for MRSA site and a second for non-MRSA site. Do not use MRSA towel on non-MRSA affected areas.
Toss MRSA towels directly into washer with bleach. DO NOT let it touch other surfaces or your skin. Treat it like it has MRSA cooties (cause it does) and it is only fit for the bleach and soap filled washing machine.

I learned of this mrsa fighting herbal combo on a fb mrsa support group and it has helped me very much with joint pain fatigue and lesson breakouts substantially. I've been taking for three weeks now I noticed improving condition at the end of first week..
The combo is e tea capsules or essiac tea, natural fiber pill, red clover pill, colostrum pill..taken three times a day..I take the fiber in pill form but the e tea, red clover, colostrum I make a tea out of I add 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, a drop of thieves oil, a drop of oregano oil, as much honey, black strap molasses as I want, a dash of black pepper, coconut oil a little blop, and almond or cashews milk..and drink it day and night..
I weakened mrsa mixing many natural cures and rotating them like raw living garlic eating and adding to bath, urine therapy, essential oils geranium, oregano, tea tree, thieves, lavrndar, colidiol silver taken inside n out, a nettie pot I use daily with natural remedy inside like distilled water colidiol silver or essential oil and urine or garlic water ect... inside, 75% raw vegan diet, drinking distilled water a gallon a day, vitamin c, e, b complex the kind you drop under the toung, biotin, trace mineral, kelp, spirilina, magnesium, e, d3, probiotic, giving up soap..I avoid soap on my skin I use a little Dr Brunner pepper ment or black seed soap on my smelly parts n hair..the rest of my body I rub with urine and rinse with plain water....lol..I'm so much better the doctors were useless n rude and even the nice ones could not help me ..I was being eaten alive inside n out I felt like I was dying..
I'm much better now..I feel better than I've felt in years..the mrsa grows weaker as I grow stronger..I cannot possibly do all of the above every day but I do some of all of the above every day and I rotate treatment. I'm not cured yet but I'm much much better ..also cleaning with borox and distilled viniger dishes laundry everything. I got worse before I got better but when I got better I got much better..also get a spray bottle n spray whole body with natural potions daily..mine has distilled water essential oils, colidiol silver and some times urine.
I was diagnosed with MSSA (methicillin susceptible strains). I'm told it is slightly less serious than MRSA. Doctors freaked me out a little by saying I must go on antibiotics and use antibiotic cream topically. I said NO and proceeded to do a ton of research. This site was very helpful. My "rash" was severe, legs, arms and back. Itching was almost too much. I tried many protocols but finally found what is working for the extend of this rash.
After four weeks of experimenting this is what I found. Everything I wear, sleep on and all towels get washed and bleached ( if possible) every day. Hot dryer afterward.
After awakening, I smash about 8-9 cloves garlic and let them sit for an hour. I take supplements, tumeric, colloidal silver, olive leaf extract, grapefruit seed capsules, Himalayan sea salt capsules. Then into a tepid bath with garlic and 8 oz of hydrogen peroxide (35% food grade). I stay in for at least one hour and if possible another half hour. Pat myself dry and smear on manuka honest. This I leave on for one hour. Then wash off and put on coconut oil. More supplements at noonish and evening after which I do the garlic, peroxide bath again, honey and coconut oil.
I was doing the bath only once a day and was not getting good results but twice a day has reall shown progress. I think if I could add more peroxide, I would have even better results but for me it was a comfort level. The honey helps with toning down the itching. I have been sleeping all night most nights and I'm thankful for that. Seeing progress now.
I've been dealing with MRSA for almost two years but didn't know it. After going to a dermatologist with a small crusty itchy spot on my ankle, I was diagnosed with squamous and had MOHs surgery to remove. Shortly after, I had more sores pop up on both legs. I decided to try black salve and this seemed to work for a short while but is a difficult treatment and really didn't stop the spread. Then went to a new doctor and she thought the sores had a lymphodemic look. I was now scared I had lymphatic cancer.
I totally changed my diet. No gluten, organic raw diet and worked with herbal supplements both the ground herbs in capsules and tinctures. Lost all bloating and some weight but the sores kept multiplting. My doctor wanted a diagnosis so I went to a dermatologist who told me I had dermatitis!!! Wanted me to take prednisone. I refused and went to another dermatologist who told me I had Prurigo Nodularis. Wanted me to do a course of antibiotics. I refused but asked him to swab the sores and get a real determination. Several days later I received a call that I had MRSA. He insisted I take antibiotics. I refused. By this time I had a severe form of MRSA which is on both legs, upper and lower and both arms, back and chest.
I immediately began to research and am now finding relief from.
1) installed an alkaline water filter and began drinking lots of water.
2) I'm taking H2O2 35% a half cup in bath at night and after applying Manuka honey to all affected areas.
3) also Oregano oil rubbed in in the morning And 5 drops in water ingested.
4) ingesting optimized Curcumin capsules.
5) taking a probiotic
6) also ingesting a liquid liposomal Glutathione. I also use an EV coconut oil on my skin and in my food.
After four days, the itching is much improved and the sores are half and don't appear as deep. I'm sleeping through the night which is huge. I will add turmeric and hope it all works.
My four year old son had a staph infection on his ear and we were able to heal it naturally. At first, it looked like he had a tick bite on his ear lobe, and perhaps it was. After a few days it was oozy and inflamed.
I treated with tea tree and frankincense essential oil, diluted 1:1 with olive oil. I used charcoal poultices on it at night. (I mixed charcoal and ground flax seed with water to make a paste, put it on a paper towel and covered the spot on his ear with the poultice. I covered that with cling wrap and wrapped it to his head with a bandana. Charcoal must be wet to be activated, thus the cling wrap. ) After a week or two of this it was nearly better. Then he woke up one day and it was much, much worse. Now it was red and looked like the scalded skin staph rash (that another child of mine had had 14 years ago and I treated conventionally, knowing of no other options. ) The earlobe was swollen. I got very aggressive. I mixed honey and turmeric together (probably 1 part turmeric to 4 parts honey) and gave him - 1 teaspoon of this 3-4 times a day, with a spoonful of extra virgin coconut oil. (He can't swallow pills, which would have been better. ) I just knew he needed the turmeric. For a four year old, 1/4 t. Turmeric several times a day seemed to be the right amount however you can get it into them. ) I also gave him one minced clove of garlic mixed with honey on a spoon or on toast with honey 3-4 times a day. I continued to use the tea tree/frankincense, olive oil mixture several times a day. I also put tincture of iodine on his earlobe at least once a day. It was obvious that it was clearing up.
After a couple of days I stopped the garlic but continued the rest for 10 days or so until it was totally healed, and even then continued with the turmeric and oil mixture for a few more days. None of the amounts I used were set in stone. I share this because it can be hard to know how to dose a small child. I was just guessing based on past experience with my children. Too much turmeric could be constipating, so watch that and push fluids. I am sure staying off sugar would be ideal for healing, but we didn't do that totally. He did get carrot juice several days. We also washed hands and pillowcases a lot. Hope this will help someone. If you don't have the frankincense (it is expensive) you could try to substitute lavender. Some study showed that a mixture of patchouli, geranium, tea tree and lavender would kill MRSA. I have not had the need to try myself and most people don't have these on hand, but it is a good thing to know about and try if needed.
