Rash on Top of Lip Chronic Impetigo?

6 days ago
Posted by Isabella (UK) on 11/24/2022

Hi everyone,

About 7/8 months ago I woke up with a small rash on my top lip which has now spread and covers my whole top lip. The doctors have repeatedly told me it's impetigo and I've tried lots of different treatments (steroids, antibiotics, antibiotic creams). I've also tried grapefruit seed extract, tea tree oil, coconut oil etc..

I can't think of anything else I can try. Nothing has seemed to work. It was slightly better throughout summer but that's about it.

Please does anyone have any suggestions?!

Thank you!

Thank you so very much! I am excited to make it and take it! I'm sure I'll be using it topically as well. With 6 kids in the house, there should be plenty of opportunities that will arise :)

Bleach bath is very benefical for folliculitis of the body. You will have to take a bath daily for good results. Use a wet wash rag to lay over your face when take this bleach bath. Pour 4 oz (¼ to ½ cup) of unsented chlorine bleach into your bath water. Soak the entire body for 10 - 25 minutes. Do not rinse your skin after the bath and quickly dry with a towel to avoid chills. Repeat bleach bath every day for one month. Diluted bleach baths are safe and effective.

In humans, medications that might be used to treat heart conditions associated with murmurs include:

  1. Blood thinners (anticoagulants). This type of medicine prevents blood clots...

  2. Water pills (diuretics). This medicine removes excess fluid from the body...

  3. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors...

  4. Beta blockers.

The closest herbal medicine in the plant world would be turmeric spice. If I were you I'd look into that.

I'm sorry you're not getting answers. I just looked it up and things like dandelion for the fluid around the heart, hawthorn, cbd oil, fish oil etc are mentioned on dogsnaturallymagazine. Did the vet give your dog any meds? Our golden retriever had heart murmur, congestive heart failure. She was taking enalapril and furosemide. But back then I didn't know about natural supplements. She did well on those meds, but not enough to help her live longer, she was 13. It's great that your dog is not showing symptoms! Ours was lethargic, having difficulty walking, etc.

  Borax and Side Effects

There are no human studies to answer the question about ulcers and borax that you are asking. There are only animal studies and those studies show that borax can cause microscopic ulcers as discussed in this study :

Here is a relevant quote from the study :

' Conclusion: Both of low dose (150mg / kg BW) and high dose (300mg / kg BW) of borax exposure for 8 weeks cause microscopic gastric ulcer on rats. '

Of importance is human equivalency of the three doses they used in this study in the rats. The three dose were :

50 mg/kg

150 mg/kg

300 mg/kg

If you convert these to human equivalency approximations, they would look like this :

8.1 mg/kg

24.3 mg/kg

48.6 mg/kg

In the study, they said the last two doses, which are higher than the first dose, caused microscopic ulcers, but when you look at their data, the lowest dose also showed some issues. When you convert that lowest dose of 8.1 mg/kg to a human weighing 80 kg or roughly 176 pounds, the dose would be 648 mg per day and this puts the dose in between Ted's dose for women and his dose for men which are roughly 500 mg for women and 1000 mg for men.

Based on the above information, it sounds like you would be using a safer approach to first heal your ulcers before attempting Ted's borax regimen.

Regarding the ulcers, natural remedies aside, your doctor should be able to put you on an antibiotic regimen to cure them fairly in most cases.

I just weighed a USA 1/8th teaspoon level full of borax on a digital milligram scale and it weighs 445 mg. Using your boron figure for borax of 11.36%, that comes out to 50.552 mg of boron or less than half of what you said. Borax can vary slightly in weight due to moisture content, but not anywhere near that much, 445 mg vs the 1062 mg you mentioned. I say USA 1/8th teaspoon because the size can vary by country.

Based on the above, a US 1/4 teaspoon at level full should offer approximately just over 100 mg of boron.

5 out of 5 stars

Geranium oil and Pine Needle oil for snotty cats. My cat (well, it's the neighbor's cat but that's another story) has had a sinus infection for 2 years. I tried herbal remedies in it's water bowl off amazon but did not work.

I can't remember where I read it but Geranium oil and Pine needle oil are safe for cats to use.


5 drops Geranium oil

5 drops Pine needle oil

1 teaspoon MCT coconut oil

Apply a few drops with an eyedropper to your cat's nose bridge and the sides of the nose bridge over the sinus plex. She stopped sneezing in a few hours. The next day only a few times so re-apply once daily til they stop sneezing altogether.

That is an incorrect calculation there. Use Aqua-calc and see the weight of the 1/8 teaspoon of borax: 1062mg. 11.36% of that is 120mg.

So 1/8 tsp of Borax = 120mg boron

Natural bio identical progesterone is the way to fix endometrial hyperplasia. It is caused by too much estrogen activation in the uterus lining and progesterne reverse it. Conventional doctors favors synthetic progestins like mirena over natural progesterone and they come with extreme side effects like depression, suicidal ideation and water retention. Pometrium or utrogestran ( taken vaginally) are better than other progestins for fixing this issue but they also come with severe side effects due to heavy dosage. Therefore natural progesterone trough creams or topical oil (absolute best) are a better option as you can better control dosage. Topical oil (progon Bl 4x) is the first go to as it comes with less side effects than creams. Find a good functional doctor or naturopath specialized in bio identical hormone therapy and consider stoping synthetic poisons.
