Hello Totally frustrated right now! My 12 yr old daughter had a couple of sores that have become infected. I tried making a charcoal poultice with tea tree oil in it , and left for 24 hours (changing at 12hrs) but the sores were still growing so we are currently trying topical antibiotics- which I'm much happier using than oral- but they still seems to be growing and spreading. We may have to resort to oral antibiotics. We have tried so many different treatments as my other 10 year old daughter has had this infection twice in the last year. Both times they got into quite large yucky wounds and she ended up on oral antibiotics as the infections were going deeper. I'm so frustrated at having two rounds of antibiotics for her, and possibly another round coming up for 12 yr old. What I'm wondering is WHY we are dealing with this infection so much!!?? We are quite healthy compared to many families so I'm finding it really frustrating that we're dealing with this. I'm wanting to boost their immunity to prevent future episodes but not sure who to go to. A naturopath? Then I'm wondering if I should be looking at our tank water?? I'm at a loss.. anyone have some tips at all pls let me know.
