How do I get rid of infection in a wound?
I got a really bad blister a couple of weeks ago on my heel and it's been infected for a week or so. I've been cleaning the would regularly by soaking it in warm, salted water and then putting hydrogen peroxide on it. Then, I've been putting Bacterium ointment on it and putting a bandaid on it. But it's still infected. I know I could go to the doctor and get antibiotics, but that type of medication wreaks havoc on my system and I don't want to go that route. Any other suggestions?

Don´t use antibiotics, they mess up your system and lower your resistance level and is not appropiate for the problem.

I´d cut it, squeeze the yellow stuff out, clean it and put Savlon on it.

If you can´t get Savlon use some other Ointment, the one you used doesn´t seem to be effective.

Then get some SchĂĽssler remedies, no 3.

Is it infected or open? With all that treatment it shouldn't be infected. It may need to dry out to heal. Cover it for a few days and keep it dry to allow healing.

take the chance of taking the anitbiotics. its a better way to go than get a really bad infection where u could lose your foot.

Try some Tea Tree Oil topically. That usually kills surface germs. You may also want to give your immune system a boost with a daily Multiple vitamin with minerals. Take vitamin C 500 mg 4x daily til healed then reduce to 500 mg daily; Also, try oil of Oregano 300-500 mg 4x daily for infection. A daily serving of yogurt is good for natural immunity too. Good luck!

Either try to put honey on the wound and get air to it.
Put aloe plant on it for fast healing and to relieve pain instantly.
Break a plant, put the plant on wound, bandange and leave on for a day...heals fast.

Blisters on the heels can take sooo long to heal...I hate 'em!
The reason it takes so long is because it keeps getting agitated due to the rubbing from your shoes...which is unavoidable this time of year-not like you can wear flip-flops and backless shoes right now! ;-( When you are able too, try to let it "air-out" as often as possible by removing your shoes/socks.
All you can really do is continue w/the cleansing and ointments...unless it is getting to the point of being dangerously/unhealthily infected...then you just may need to consult a doctor.

it's antibiotics or nothing really.

you say they "wreak havoc" with your system... think of it this way... would you rather have a few days of discomfort, or die from septicemia?

You honestly need to go to the doctor to have this evaluated. If you have problems with certain antibiotics, the doctor can prescribe an antibiotic for you that will be compatible with your system, or they can quite possibly give you an injection of antibiotics to help your body fight off the infection. The chances of other bacteria invading your wound and causing more infection are abundant, so it's important that you get proper medical care for your wound. In the meantime, you might want to wear open-backed shoes to give the wound a chance to heal. Even with band-aids, the wound is still being agitated by contact with the heels of shoes, which can prevent it from healing.


Trust no 1
Take the antibiotics along with Acidophilus (?sp). It will help mitigate the negative effects so that they may not even be noticible, but you will still get the benefits of the antibiotic.
