I didn't think to look for the manuka honey at the HFS today, and I'm without a car right now.

I just find it interesting how my Dr friend was telling me how contageous this is, especially if there are any cuts on your hands. Yet, I always have little cuts on my fingers- between picking at my cuticles (I know, it's a bad habit and I should stop) and the inevitable kitchen mishaps when cutting vegetables. But I haven't caught this, not even the slightest little inkling that it might be starting. And we've been in the same house for the past several weeks and I haven't always been so careful about changing the hand towels or sanitizing the doorknobs regularly.

So there's something to be said for having a strong immune system.

Now I just need to figure out what's going on with DD1's immune system, why she's so prone to skin problems (especially on her right hand) and strengthen her. I think she might benefit from giving the nonnie diet a  try (unfortunately, I couldn't afford two secretor tests this month, or I would have had hers tested at the same time as mine.) I'll see what my finances look like in the coming months- I'd love to get her a secretor test and SWAMI for her 17th birthday, but that might not be possible.

I had impetigo as a child due to scratching from mosquito bites. My family went camping a lot in the summer and I had been bitten by mosquitos while playing outdoors near standing water. A few days later I had impetigo and it was a really bad case. Had to be hospitalized due to fever and large pustules on my arms and legs.

I was given antibiotics and bathed in Phisohex (hexachlorophene) for about 3 to 5 days until I was well enough to go home. Phisohex is some amazing stuff, but it can be  obtained only by Rx. And it is likely only the last resort for flesh eating bacterial infections.

OK, her hand is looking a lot better this morning- the old spots are healing (as they have been since we started the olive oil) and there are no new blisters! She did use the topical antibiotic twice yesterday (or was it 3 times?) and once this morning. I'm not sure which drug because I didn't see the  tube; my friend squeezed some into a medicine cup for DD to bring home.

I fully trust the rash to heal with natural remedies, but I'm not comfortable "not following medical advice" when I can't avoid doctors seeing her. She saw the urgent care center on Sunday, she's seeing her regular pediatrician on Tuesday, and she's babysitting for my MD friend this Thursday and the Thursday after. I really don't want to risk her PCP calling CPS on me for "medical neglect" if this rash doesn't go away as  fast as they expect it to. So I'm going to fill the prescription for the antibiotic cream, but I'll leave it up to DD1's discretion if she actually wants to use it or not.

I'm also encouraging DD1 to use the olive oil several times a day as well as consume raw garlic. Once this rash is gone, I'm going to encourage her to keep using olive oil on her hands daily as a preventative. So, once this particular infection is gone, I need to figure out how to strengthen her immune system. I'm going to ask the ped to run a vitamin D test on her, and I'm going to talk to DD about compliance, sugar intake, and see if she wants to give the nonnie diet a try.

What could happen if your daughter takes the antibiotics is that it won't get rid of the infection.  Then they'd run a culture and perhaps find out it's drug-resistant anyway, which is what happened with our DD.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
