A year ago, I had a staph infection that manifested itself as hard-as-marble bumps on my head and a painful sore on my cheek. My dermatologist thought the sore on my cheek was acne and so he prescribed minocycline to handle both issues. I took 100mg of minocycline twice a day for thirty days with two refills. After the fifth day, the bumps and cheek sore were gone. I continued with the minocycline for the entire thirty days but about three weeks after I finished the prescription, hard bumps started appearing on my head.
I got another refill of minocycline and again, by the fifth day the bumps were gone. During the second week of this second round of minocycline, I did research on the internet and decided to supplement the minocycline with a concoction of 1tbsp of virgin coconut oil, 1 tbsp of turmeric and a pinch of pepper all mixed in water. I drank this three times a day. I continued with the turmeric drink even after I finished the minocycline but about three weeks after I finished the minocycline, hard bumps started appearing on my head again.
Another solution that I thought had promise was colloidal silver. I bought a bottle of 500ppm colloidal silver. I read the label and took the recommended adult dosage of 1/2 teaspoon. I did this three times a day. The bumps still grew but at a slower rate.
I decided to go for it. I upped the dosage to 2 tablespoons mixed with bottled water. About two hours afterwards, I noticed that the tops of the bumps had softened. About three hours later, the bumps hardened but were noticeably smaller. On the third day, I ran out of the colloidal silver so I went to the health food store nearest me and bought 30 ppm colloidal silver since they didn't sell the 500 ppm.
I took 2 tablespoons of 30 ppm colloidal silver but didn't notice any change in the bumps two hours later. I drank the rest of the 30 ppm bottle and noticed a very slight softening of the bumps as a result. At that point, I drove back to the original store and bought four bottles of 500 ppm colloidal silver. Two and a half days later, I was cured. It's been six months and I haven't experienced any staph bumps since.
About six days ago, I was coming down with a sore throat and a cough. I didn't even bother measuring out the colloidal silver and mixing with bottled water. I just drank it straight from the bottle. I finished a four ounce bottle in two days. When I woke up the third day, I was feeling great.
500 ppm colloidal silver is a yea for me and no, I didn't turn blue.
