mid March, inflamed red pimple on right wrist, misdiagnosed. one week later, infected ulcer, purple ridges, painful red swelling surrounding tissue. two months later seven ulcers on hand and forearm, two more on chest, one inflamed pimple left cheek.
May 24, Emergency room Dr. diagnoses Staph infection, prescribes new meds, Doxycycline and Bactroban. Next morning after having applied liberal amounts of Bactroban I notice three new inflamed pimples right forearm. Deep breath, stay calm, do not panic, do not scream. I'm scared.
I had previously tried tea tree oil on infection, broke out in hives and my arm became more inflamed. If I were not so worried the light bulb would have gone off sooner. I use holista tea tree conditioner once a week on my scalp, no inflamation and wonderfully soothing. I mix up five drops tea tree oil in one teaspoon water and add this to one tablespoon tea tree conditioner. I wash sores gently with Apple Cider Vinegar and then apply liberal amounts of conditioner. The inflamation is almost gone and no new sores. Cross my fingers and big prayer. thank you for the info on diluting tea tree oil. May 27, staph infection almost gone. Doctor says purple scars will take several month to fade. I am so thankful they are not on my face.
Thank you for this wonderful site, kept me from going off deep end.
