Staph infections are actually killing people, often a gruesome legacy from hospital stays. The super bugs are resistant to most antibiotics and treatment is both punishing and not readily spoken about. What the experts neglect to say is that once the chronic episode is under control the bacteria, or bugs, are still very much present and active within your system.
Symptoms can include:
Low energy or chronic exhaustion, this lethargy is sometimes confused with the initial illness that precipitated the hospital visit.
Itchiness, skin irritation or subtle rashes indicate a colonies presence
Pimples arise in various places that continue to grow into very nasty and painful Blisters
Excess clear slimy Snot from the bacteria, or bugs, residing and growing in the nose with a coat of clear gel that is their protection or colonisation.
Anti bacterial wash, twice a day for ten days during an episode, then each shower to keep the itchiness and pimples under control
Antibacterial nasal cream in your nostrils twice daily to kill their colonies
Frequent hand washing and meticulous covering of sneezes are essential to stop the spread of these nasties – keep your family and friends safe!
Staying fit with diet, exercise and sleep along with turmeric help to strengthen the immune system to fight this imbalance.

Please relate any stories or solutions that you know about these nasty life-changing infections?
