I'm upping their baths, unfortunately one of my dogs hates water. I am hoping to find some kind of topical spray for in between baths, something that is light enough that they won't try to lick it. The pit bulls are prone to furuncles, which them become infected with MRSA. The chihuahua has terrible skin problems, I'm pretty sure she was the original cause of the MRSA, the vet kept putting her on meds. So, anyway, I'm looking for an integrated approach.
My infections aren't large, there are just a lot of them, a couple dozen on my arms, a few on my chest, and now a couple on my thighs. And the crusty nose so common with MRSA. I've been dealing with these skin infection for years, but never knew what they were, just got a diagnosis, previous doctor's just told me I was crazy.

A few years back I picked up conjunctivitis (pink eye) from my nephew. I didn’t and still don’t have insurance, and I prefer not to use antibiotics so I did a quick internet search. I ended up doing eye drops of raw cows milk from a local organic farm. I did a drop in each eye about every few hours the first day then only about 4 times the second day. By the third day I was back to normal. I’ve had this work for strep infections in the throat as well taking a sip of the milk every hour or two the first day.

I have two different generators: one from The Silver Edge - my main unit - which seems to make a very consistent 1 litre batch at a time - and I am still on the original rods, plus one from Atlas Nova that runs from a single 9-volt battery that I can also power from a small 9-12 volt solar panel (as it only draws micro-amps to make a nice small 8 oz batch) for prepping/disaster/power-outage use. Both units take 3 1/2 to 4 hours to make a batch and have proven reliable. Remember, use only Distilled Water only!!!
