Staph infections are pretty common because the staphylococcus bacteria which causes staph infection lives inside the nose, mouth, genitals and anal area. The bacteria do not cause any harm as long as they remain on the surface of the skin but if they happen to invade the top layers of the skin through a cut, injury or abrasion then they cause infection and untold harm. The strength of the infection depends upon how deep it goes and how fast it spreads.
The infected area becomes red, tender and swollen and later open sores or blisters erupt on the surface of the skin. The blisters fill up with fluid which contains the infection causing bacteria and other impurities and anyone coming into contact with this fluid can easily get infected. If the infection spreads, there can be fever, chills, sweats and uncommon swelling in the affected area. People with weakened immune system and diabetes are at a greater risk of developing staph infection.

Garlic has natural and extremely powerful antibiotic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which not only kill the bacteria but also reduce the swelling and itching and strengthen the immune system so that it is able to combat the harmful microbes. Swallow three cloves of garlic with a glass of water every morning.

Tea Tree Oil
