Eczema Becomes Mrsa
Dear Ted, Reading the Earth Clinic site, it seems that just about everyone has boils appear in the armpit, buttocks, etc. with no apparent provocation. My case is somewhat different and I wanted to run it by you. I had an eczema on my foot, it rubbed my sandal and next I know I have open sore that later a lab test identified later as MRSA. It was about 1" in diameter and gradually, over a period of two, three month become about 2 x 2 inches. It is there, but I don't have boils just popping all over my body or anything. What do you make of it? Incidentally, the lab test indicated that my strain is sensitive to Rifampin and Trimetho/Sulfa, I tried them and it made zero difference. No matter how low is my opinion of infection disease doctors, and it is low, I just find it hard to believe that hospital would miss out on the fact that MRSA is resistance to acid-base disinfectants. Are you saying also that all those commercial disinfectants with Chlorine that promise to kill 99.9% are all but useless? What is doubly painful is the fact that my toddler has MRSA, no real boils, or at least nothing obvious, but he does have red rush on a fairly large area. We have been trying different things on him and we are at wit's ends.
