It’s a little known fact that that bacteria, including MRSA can actually be washed off right off the skin!
Keep in mind though that Staph bacteria that have already entered the body and infected a wound site or created a boil can’t be simply washed away because they have “dug in”.
The exciting news for those suffering from MRSA infections is that bacteria ON the the skin can be washed away!
Can I really just “wash off” MRSA and what would the benefits be?
Yes you can! If you have a shower and a bar of soap then that’s all you need to wash off a plenty of bacteria off your skin.
However, to increase the effectiveness of this “bacterial wash” I personally suggest using a Tea Tree soap. This is based on my ow personal experience.
My reasoning the based on the fact that Tea Tree is known to kill bacteria, including the nasty “superbug” MRSA.
Therefore, you can reduce the number of bacteria present on your skin even further by using Tea Tree soaps.
This is because any “hanger on-ers” will have to deal with the antibacterial qualities of the Tea Tree soap.
So…its a double whammy!
The benefit of washing with a Tea Tree soap is that the likelihood of infection is reduced because the number of bacteria on your skin has been reduced.
I personally that although washing in this manner didn’t prevent every bacterial attack, it certainly reduced the frequency of infections.
Tea Tree oil displays antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities when used topically.
These amazing properties are still effective when used in a soap so incorporating a Tea Tree soap into your washing routine is a good idea.
Oh, and just in case you need more convincing that Tea Tree soap is a “must have”, Tea Tree has been clinically proven to be more effective at preventing the transmission of MRSA than many antibiotic creams!
Alright…you have my attention…but what should I be looking for in a Tea Tree soap?
This is really your choice and you are spoilt for choice really. You really only need to decide whether you prefer bar soaps or liquid soaps?”
If you prefer bar soaps, choose one produced by a reputable soap manufacturer, or one which has good reviews on Amazon or another online marketplace.
If you prefer a liquid soap, the only brand that I used with success is Dr Bronner’s Tea Tree liquid soap.
Do I recommend using a Tea Tree soap for MRSA sufferers?
This is a definite YES! It’s entirely your choice but if you have read my book “The Boil Bible” you will know that I personally used Tea Tree soaps during my battle with MRSA.
Therefore, I can say, hand on heart, that if you aren’t already, you should be using a Tea Tree soap when washing.
Tea Tree soaps are not expensive and they are an effective way to help keep your skin-borne bacteria levels at a manageable level so you’d be a mug if you didn’t use them.
I hope this advice helps you on your recovery from MRSA and feel free to leave a comment below.
