This is my first post. I am so glad I found this website!
My 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with MRSA a few weeks ago. She had it in February 2011, too, diagnosed only as strepp. It presents as a vaginal rash, pretty mild really, kind of looks like pink scalded skin. Definitely not your typical MRSA manifestation. Well, we did a course of antibiotics in February, but it must not have killed the staph. My daughter was prescribed Clindamyocin this go round. My husband and I chose not to treat the infection with antibiotics this time.
For the last month or so, my daughter has been on a wheat-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and gluten-free diet. In addition, she's taking 30B of probiotics per day, Vitamin C and D, high doses of Sovereign Silver, Children's Glycerite, and digestive enzymes. Her rash has continued to get a bit worse, so a week ago we added liquid and topical allicin (purchased through Allimed) to the regime, but the rash is holding strong.
I really don't want to use the antibiotics if I don't have to. I've heard MRSA reoccurs often, although I don't know at what rate, and often worse with each flare up. We are not working with an Infectious Disease Doctor at this time, only a Naturopathic Doctor.
So, help please!!!
I've read some other threads suggesting Phenomenal Water and Manuka honey. The honey sounds great, but really odd for the vaginal area. Does anyone have any other ideas that have worked for them? My cousin suggested Allimax might be better because it's 3rd party certified; any thoughts?
Thanks so much, and bless you all for sharing!
