Moms who have had it, or had/have kids with it.....how bad is this going to get?<br><br>
What can I do to help treat it?<br><br>
We are using antibiotics. Tea tree oil, neosporin, and cleaning the sores, but Dr is sure its also in older DS's lungs now too.<br><br>
We are facing hospitialization if it is in his lungs...not just for him but all 3 kids.<br><br>
I dont have the funds to go buy anything right now, so any treatments that would include simple household items would be greatly appreciated!!

Saw your other thread in TAO.<br>
First off.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><br>
I have not had experience with MRSA, but have dealt with multiple staph infections. Some natural treatment options to consider-<br>
Colloidal Silver<br>
Olive Leaf Extract<br>
Grapefruit Seed Extract<br>
Manuka Honey (just found this, looks expensive though)<br><a href="http://www.manukahoneyusa.com/mrsa-superbug-treatment.htm" target="_blank">http://www.manukahoneyusa.com/mrsa-s...-treatment.htm</a><br>
I hope your sons have a speedy recovery! Will keep your family in my prayers.

Mega doses of vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) had been shown to cure MRSA. Frederick Klenner, MD, who used SA extensively with amazing results for a very wide range of conditions reported resolution of staphylococcal infections with iv injections of vitamin C in a dose range of 500 to 700 mg/kg body weight, given through a "20G needle as fast as the patient's cardiovascular system will allow."<br><br>
If you can't get the SA administered through iv, then taking the SA to bowel tolerance would be next best.<br><br>
Here is a link to how to titre (dose) to bowel tolerance:<br><br><a href="http://www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm" target="_blank">http://www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm</a><br><br>
Here is how to get vitamin C adminstered in the hospital:<br><br><a href="http://www.doctoryourself.com/strategies.html" target="_blank">http://www.doctoryourself.com/strategies.html</a><br><br>
Do read the links in the above article to, for a much greater understanding of vitamin C.<br><br>
In other research Nakanishi (1992, 1993) reported that the application of vitamin C topically on a sore was able to "remarkably" enhanced the bacteria-killing effect of antibiotics. Nakanishi also reported that staph that had been antibiotic-resistant prior to the addition of vitamin C, subsequently disappeared from the wound.

my ds and I both have had MRSA infections. My ds caught his from the hospital where he had surgery when he was 3 weeks old. He did get sick, but escaped hospitalization. It did NOT get in his lungs. It is serious. Mine infection started on the skin and spread inward from there. I had it lanced, ran a fever for a few days and took the antibiotics. This is definately one infection where you want to take the antibiotics. If it gets into the blood (sepsis), it can go deadly quickly.

my dh is struggling with this right now as I type. about a year ago he was hospitalized for two MRSA infections that were traveling inwards towards his spine. It was super scary. After that surgery and healing, about a month later, he had another 'episode' but they caught it before it was anything like the first. Then we found online people talking about taking turmeric to heal it. Dh started taking turmeric pills three times a day immediately. He didnt have any additional break outs until he became 'lazy' about taking his pills a month or so ago. This time it was on his head. He had some cream they gave him with the first outbreak and he used that. It healed up but he has a huge scar there. Then recently he had a sinus infection and sore appeared under his nose from all the nose blowing and irritation. It went from a tiny sore one day to the next day being a full blown infection. He has been in the dr's office every day while they lance it, drain it, dig into it, put stuff in it to kill the MRSA and pack it. He has also been in the hospital as outpatient to get IV antibiotics. He is also taking oral antibiotics. Bathing with hibiclens, etc. I'm going to read those links on the Vit C thing, but around here I wonder if we could even get a dr to listen to us. This area is in short supply of dr's and out of the ones here, I think ours is the best, and he isnt all that knowledgable on this subject as it is. But we'll see.<br><br>
lilgsmommy-how did it end up for your boys? what was done for them? do you think it worked well?<br><br>
anyone else-any more ideas? my dh also takes-when he isnt lazy about it-oil of oregano. when he takes this and the turmeric consistantly he doesnt have any problems. but any lapse and he suddenly has a break out.

I had boils in my right armpit last summer that were HUGE. I did what I could, since I have no health insurance and they went away. I still have them pop up, only they are very very small ones.<br><br>
I have taken Turmeric and it seems to hold them off. I also take Vit C and Zinc. It seems when I get stressed, they are worse.<br><br>
My youngest has had two boils on his legs. One had to be lanced, and the other didn't. He has insurance so he saw his doc and took antibiotics. The doc told me that here in FL, a lot of people get boils. It seems to have gotten worse since the hurricanes in 2004 hit here.<br><br>
We clean everything carefully, and don't share towels. I also launder any towels I use after one time, in hot water. I also use Lysol on surfaces, including the beds, at least a couple of times a week, and we make sure to clean any wounds/scratches with soap, put neosporin on them and cover them immediately. I do not shave my armpits, but instead will use Nair or something. I do shave my legs but either use the razor once and discard or clean it in alcohol.<br><br>
The doc also said that you can use Neosporin inside of your nostrils and that will kill the infection, since it usually comes in through your nose. I have also used tea tree oil and K-Y jelly inside of my nose. Stinks, but it seems to have helped.<br><br>
I hate this. I hope that when we finally move out of Florida, that this will be gone for good.
