In a sampling of 187 hospital patients, people whose noses naturally contained S. lugdunensis were six times less likely to have S. aureus than people whose noses lacked S. lugdunensis , Peschel's team found. This suggests that S. lugdunensis is able to combat the growth of the problematic bacterium. That means the antibiotic produced by the bacterium could be developed as a preventive — a nasal spray, for example — to keep S. aureus out of people’s noses in the first place. About 9% of people naturally carry S. lugdunensis .
I recently had mole removed from my abdomen, also a wart from my arm and several skin tags on my neck. He froze them off. The tags havent fallen off yet, but the mole and wart have and became infected even though i was on levaquin for a respiratory infection. I called my dermatologist, who changed me to bactrim. The sores kept getting worse. I was using peroxide and triple antibiotic ointment as well. He had me come in and told me it was mrsa and changed me to doxycycline and mupricin cream(not sure if i even spelled that right). So now i have to wait and see if its better by Sunday or i may have to go in the hospital. The redness around it has shrunk but the hole it made has spread a little. I am basically scared out of my mind here. I need some advice and would so appreciate it:) I have pictures of it at various stages if anyone is interested.
I made a paste of Baking soda and Muprocin for boils in areas I couldn't bandage (scalp); it worked incredibly well to partially drain the boils overnight, and none have spread. The next morning, being in a hurry, I just squirted the muprocin on my finger and dipped it in the baking soda, then applied it to the sore, it stings but it's drying them up really fast. I'll continue this (and washing the area, and nose and ears in Hibicleanse) for a few more days to make sure it's eradicated. I swear I can feel the germs runnning for cover into my ears, so I am drowning them/ears in hydrogen peroxide between my baths.
