Reply To: Essential Oils for Impetigo (or weeping eczema?)


I recently had a case of eczema that ended up getting infected with staph. “Atopic dermatitis with associated staph infection”. The weeping fluid came back positive for staph aureus but not MRSA. I tried some blends of EO topically but everything seemed to make it itch more. (It was a maddening itch!). So, I used the antibiotic prescription salve on my foot and took oregano oil internally which helped. I also have issues with candida, so I wanted something that could potentially kill both. I may try benchmark thyme next. Will it also kill candida?
