Natural Remedies for Staph Infections

I think I have staph on my lips. It started with a rough feeling, but nothing obvious. Like my lips were super dry. Then they started peeling excessively. I used petroleum jelly and it seemed to calm some but then some scans appeared on my top lip right at the border. They were roundish. They didn't feel weird or anything but were visible. I put vitamin e on them and they tingled. I put tea tree oil and olive oil mix and they tingled. They then started to itch. No pain and the itching was intermittently. Only if touched. Lips were peeling like crazy . The scabs would come off the lesions and then just reform. Petroleum jelly seemed to help start the healing and then it didn't. I used calendula tincture mixed with a CS ointment and the peeling abruptly stopped. But I was left with the two roundish lesions at the top of my lips it seems now that the peeling has stopped my lips are inflamed a bit. They are pink and red in spots where the peeling happened. I tried Manuka honey overnight and boy was that a mistake! Woke up very inflamed. I'm drinking turmeric tea, taking usnea x 3 a day, just started monolaurin. Tried a activated charcoal poultice with tea tree and it seemed to anger it, but about an hour later it was a bit better. I have had staph in my urine cultures and it's difficult to take vitamin C which I think actually rids it because I also have proteus miribalis in my urine and proteus feeds on vitamin C. So now I am unsure of the route I should take. I really don't want antibiotics because of the fact of building resistance but I don't want this staph to spread. I'm really praying for divine guidance. In need God to speak to me.

If the honey made it inflamed, I guarantee you have a severe food sensitivities to honey that you're not aware of.

Staph Remedies for the Eyes
Posted by Magnolia 16 (Virginia, USA) on 06/14/2019

Does anyone have any ideas about how to treat a staph infection of the eye. My husband has a painful boil/cyst on the eyeball, red, itchy. He tried diluted apple cider vinegar and got no results. He is now using a prescription of cipro eyedrops and after 3 days no improvement - he has a week to go on those drops. Any help would be appreciated.

Try colloidal silver 10ppm 3x/day or as needed. Should help it clear up quickly.

Dear EC, HELP A BROTHER AGAINST STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS AND YEAST BLOOD INFECTIONS IN BLOOD... I'm in tears. I contacted staph aures in secondary SCHOOL toilet and since then I have tried so many antibiotics but to no avail.. (Don't even mention any) At times after taking the injections it disappears and reappear. Its more than 14 years I'm battling to get it out if my system. I have been asking GOD why me. Now I'm approaching 33 with no wife and children. I tried some African herbs but non have given me 100 percent healing but for sure herbs helped me a bit.

Please this staph has been moving from one place to the other in my body. I now experience severe pain at my waist, There was a time I took 1000 mg of vitamin C x3-4 a with bioflanoids. At times I do take cucumber and water. Now I'm also experiencing shortness of urine and pain beside my stomach. PLEASE SAVE A LIFE.... I'M 32 YEARS OLD.. I thankGod for the person that established this and may God continue to bless us all.

OK, I'm going to try this. Feel the second eye lid staph infection coming on. The last one I had was just 10 months ago and I reluctantly used antibiotics for it after topical heat pads with essential oils weren't helping. Already have colloidal silver on hand and will let you know what happens. Also am taking tea tree and frankincense internally.

What is tea tree conditioner and where do you get it? My husband has been suffering for 8 months with staph infection on knee. He went septic and almost died. Was on antibiotics for several months. Seemed to clear up and has now resurfaced again.

EC: The poster was referring to this product to use on her scalp, which is no longer available:

Hello Dori,

There is A LOT of research on many different "natural" treatments for MRSA since antibiotic resistance is increasing and some people can not take antibiotics (e.g., resistance, allergies, low immunity, drug-interactions, etc...).

Below is a brief description of some research-based treatments that work well. Many can be combined.


* To prevent reoccurrence, many studies and practitioners stress the importance to continue all treatments well past the disappearance of the infection, 1-2 months.

* Consistency is absolute key.

* Consult with an experienced holistic practitioner.

1. Essential Oils

Geranium, Lavender, Tea Tree, Patchouli (Geranium must be present to synergize the other oils).

Other studies additionally include: red thyme, peppermint and lemongrass essential oils.

There are many high quality brands of essential oils that have a blend of these oils. I use a blend called 'Mercy' (, it is well known for treating staph, ingredients: Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia), Geranium (Pelargonium x asperum), Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin), Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia).

Generally, apply to clean/dry area 3-5x/day, cover. Dilute according to your need, 10-25% to start. Apply a small diluted drop on healthy skin first to rule out allergic reactions. Some find that they need a more concentrated solution, 50% .

In addition to topical use, some rub in 1-2 drops on the soles of their feet 1-3x/day; and/or take 1 drop orally in a capsule mixed with oil, x3/day; and/or, diffuse these oils at night while asleep. These treatments constantly keep the active ingredients in your system.

Carrier oils for dilution: Black Cumin Seed (there are studies using this to treat MRSA), fractionated coconut oil, olive oil, aloe vera, emu oil, jojoba, etc....

2. Ozonated Olive Oil - high potency (e.g.,, PurO3, others). Apply 3-5x/day. First, clean/dry area.

3. EmuaidMax - apply 3-4x/day; rub in very well to activate. Clean/dry area. Includes tea tree oil, Emu Oil, potent probiotic culture, olive oil, colloidal silver is the active ingredient.

4. HOCL - Hypochlorous Acid

There is a high potency HOCL gel that is being used for recurrent infections and are used in many health care settings. I use which is also used in some hospitals/clinics/Vets (use the gel solution and/or higher concentrate). Apply 3-6x/day, cover.

5. Turmeric - use high quality / potency brand (e.g., Solaray Turmeric Root Extract 300mg, 95% Curcumin, orally, 3 capsules, 3x/day; Terry Naturally gel caps; many others). Some mention that after including turmeric the infection finally healed.

Laundry Detergent

Interestingly, there are studies showing a strong link between using toxic detergents and some reoccurring infections and when eliminated, the infection finally resolved.

Immune System

* Important to strengthen the immune system during treatment: healthy diet, "antibiotic-like" herbs, probiotics, turmeric, eliminate toxins (self-care products, foods, drinks, etc...), sleep, COLLOIDAL SILVER, Chlorophyll, (, etc..

* Important to ensure the body's pH is not acidic and eliminate caffeine/sugar for the time being - these strengthen & can spread infection.

* Detox & Clean Ups - see Dr Hulda Clark's book, "The Cure For All Diseases". She covers a very broad range of issues to address regarding recurrent staph infections. And, read her later books.

* Many, like Dr Clark, have used frequency generators and/or zappers in conjunction with these other treatments with good results.

Identify Source(s)

Often there is a chronic staph infection under a tooth (e.g, root canal, cavitation, abscess, prior surgical spot) or in another location in the body causing reoccurence, especially when the immune system is compromised. See a biological dentist.

Until then, brush/floss teeth with baking soda and oregano oil (very potent antimicrobial penetrant). Can also add peppermint, clove, cinnamon essential oils, finely ground sea salt, etc... In addition, can swish with ozonated olive oil and/or brush with it, or swish with HOCL mouthwash.

Eliminate easy sources causing reinfection: never put fingers in mouth, always boil milk/dairy 3 minutes to sterilize, wash hands/finger nails frequently and sterilize with Everclear or iodine/water solution, etc...

Pay careful attention to all hygiene practices.

I hope your husband's infection clears soon and let us know what works.

My daughter had a staph infection as well. 2 rounds of antibiotics did not help. We used a cosmetic cream with 90% turmeric in sandalwood oil base (found in the Indian grocery store, or online) applied topically helped a lot, especially if caught early on the life of the boil. I also give turmeric in warm milk, masked with a tsp of molasses.

Hi there - thanks for your post on the Staph infection. My 3.5 year old and I both have it currently. I'm not wanting it to spread. He had about 8 spots on him on legs and arms. I manage to calm them with turmeric and castor oil but then they come up somewhere else etc. I have 2 on my legs one which turned into an abscess! Any additional suggestions to stop the spreading? Thank you 🙏🏻

Staph Remedies: Living in the Northern most region has caused my body to go through various changes. I have found the lack of sunlight, long dark cold winters and heavy polluted winds over the ocean from China are definitely part of the problem. Originally I only had a small bump on the side of my nose. Other problems, such as blood pressure increase caused my to go to the hospital and get checked. Unfortunately, doctors here are not familiar with many strains of staph and did not get a diagnosis, but wanted me on blood pressure pills. This went on until I finally went to Colorado and saw a Chinese Herbalist who tested me and found the staph. Since that time I have had herbal tonic, clean diet, vinegar/baking soda/honey and water mix and LIMU cleanse. Natural cures seem to take along time but it is slowly healing. It is been about a year. I believe if I was in a different area with green plants and sunshine it would probably heal faster.
