Ds (Southern California) on 07/06/2018: Chlorophyll and Hydrogen Peroxide for Boils/Hidradenitis Suppurativa
I had trouble with genital boils for several years. It turns out they were caused by hidradenitis suppurativa. I also had a recent bout with cellulitis on my calf; that was fixed by green smoothies. Earth Clinic is my go-to for any health issue, so I've tried the turmeric, which worked the first few times but made my stink worse.
Because of the odor from boils, I used tea tree oil during showers and also applied it before dressing. It smelled great, but that didn't reduce or drain anything.
Chronic body odor and halitosis were the reason I started taking chlorophyll. They have somewhat improved since I replaced the liquid version with the gelcaps, surprisingly. Since chlorophyll fights staph, my new breakouts are small and painless even if I have starches or sweets. They also heal quickly. My memory and stamina are also improved.
I still had awful, dark scars from the cellulitis. I've had melasma on my chin for years, too. Someone here recommended hydrogen peroxide for acne scars, so I tried it. The cellulitis scar is fading, and it's only been about a week. I also use it on my elbows and knees. One elbow is showing marked improvement.
Here's the kicker. Earlier this week, I tried the peroxide on those chronic boils before bed because of intense itching. Yes, I worried that it would burn, but it didn't. They were greatly reduced in the morning. Generally, they would be painful to wash during bathing. Not anymore! Today is day four or five, and, as happened yesterday, I had a normal shower without pain. This time, I put some on the boils after the shower, and I expect they'll only improve. I'll continue putting peroxide on them at bedtime.
I also take ACV for hot flashes, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and Type 2 diabetes.
Thank you, Father! Thank you, Deirdre Layne! Thank you, Earth Clinic!
