Greetings! Welcome to the Infectious disease Healthboards!
I am sorry you have this infection. I admit I had some in my past that were awful too fungal first as far as I know that lasted a long time but finally left and a bacterial one that lasted a long time and spread on the skin and finally went away so don't give up trying.
I did many things for it. I ate nutritious foods some raw some cooked without additives. A lot of the food was unboxed, packaged or canned. I used a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes and nuts. I especially used more limes, grapefruit, oranges, kiwis, garlic, and onions. I sometimes used foods for certain areas of the body I thought did not feel well and juiced vegetables and fruits. I tried to keep a schedule of meals 5 hours apart with the last meal but light, a peice of bread and a piece of fruit.
I tried to drink between 6-10 glasses of water every day for every 100 pounds body weight.
I tried to walk a few minutes after meals daily and an hour in addition to this in sunshine and fresh air.
I washed all produce to take pesticides off. I avoided sugar which feeds germs. I avoid cheese, vinegar, ketchup, mayonnaise, alcohol, tobacco.
I tried to get more rest or sleep at least 8 hours and sometimes more going to bed at the same time each night at least 2 hours before midnight most of the time.
I took a daily bath and changed to clean clothes. I brushed the teeth every night before bed and sometimes more often. I learned that flouride can cause cancer and stopped its use. Natural materials were suggested for clothes. Borax was added to natural soap for laundry. Socks were changed somtimes twice a day to help keep them drier. Clothes were ironed to help keep down bacteria. Skin was otherwise kept dry except for dishes, cleaning or treatment. The house was cleaned often.
I used Tea tree oil losenges, did hydrotherapy, ocean therapy (some germs like salt), steam activated charcoal poultices on the terrible eruption which seemed to help pull the pus out of it. I consulted more than one regular doctor of various types. I used an antibiotic which did not help and I felt had very bad side effects. I used a cream they prescribed which I felt helped a little while and then it flared up again. I took herbs from a naturopath, used natural herbs, natural creams, natural soaps and normal shampoos for the normal skin and hair avoided the use of many chemicals. I used normal saline eyedrops and tried to keep my hands off my face. (sometimes I would rub or touch it without thinking) Hand washing was after toileting, contamination or before treatment. I still feel the natural therapies did far more good in heaing than the regular medicine although it can have its place in diagnostics. I tried to learn all I could about the body and its organs and its workings, even chemistry and the decided it came down to not all that but what we are doing with ourselves and our exposures. When all is said and done you can do what you wish and do all of it (not all at the same time), some of it or none of it. I also try to help others and look for their benefit and happiness. Peace, sjb
