ETA: the red line going up my foot is tender to the touch. And...I can't take any homeopathics right now (due to the lactose base).
Are you soaking it in hot water several times a day?
Maybe put TTO in the water?
Eating tons of garlic (natural antibiotic)?
How about a garlic and/or onion poultice?
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
But if a line is there and is tender I would see a dr. Even if it is just for a professional oppinion.
I hope you are feeling much better very soon!

So here's what I'm doing. Epsom Salt paste all over my foot at all times - unless I have to run upstairs or something (I've got my foot in a big container, slipping it around with me as I walk). I am taking a full 2 oz of echinacea angus between now and 8 am tomorrow and bellis perennis every few hours. I just ate a raw garlic clove.
I appreciate the garlic idea purplepaisley and perhaps I'll do this intermittently with the epsom salts. I'm so sad at the thought of taking abx. My poor girl.
My ND said to not take my probiotics while taking the abx but to start up again immediately after. Thoughts on this?
Hopefully someone else knows.,
As for your ND not wanting you to take probiotics it may be so you can get teh full dose of the abx and not have to take it longer with as stronger dose if the infection doens't get kicked out quickly.
