My brother had staph four years ago. The doctor cut a hole in him the size of his fist and gave him medication. He said he had done all he could do. He could hardly walk as he was in so much pain. I cleaned the area and washed it in peroxide. Then I made a paste of turmeric. I packed it and he kept it clean for three days with no wrapping. He took turmeric tablets by mouth and began to heal within three to four days. I hope this helps someone..

I had a infected sebaceous cyst on my back. and they removed the cyst by cutting it out in the urgent care office. Also I was put on antibiotics and told to not cover the wound and leave it open to the air and to wash it with soap and water. It is still swollen and the area is very red and I am still sore and in pain..
