On August 20th I woke up with what I thought was a pimple in the front of my shoulder. The next day I thought I must have gotten a spider bite while cutting the grass the day before. The same day (or at least that's when I noticed it) a huge nasty pimple appeared in my left armpit and a small one in right armpit. Again, I just thought it was stress coming out that way. The one under left arm got real nasty and the one on shoulder got bigger and nastier and so very painful till a week later, after lots of hot compresses, it finally broke open and so much stuff came out of it.

It was so nasty it looked like something from a sci-fi movie and I kept waiting for some creature to erupt from it. After a lot of looking up MRSA and spider bites (which are often confused one for the other) I now know it's not a spider bite. The infection never had the red circle around it and it never itched at all. Prior to this I joined a fitness club and I would bet that is where it came from.

I did not go to the doctor at all and I wouldn't unless I got a fever or a red line going up arm. In the beginning I figured if it was just a spider bite, and I went to the hospital, as soon as I walked thru the doors it would indeed become a MRSA infection.

I used Thieves, RC, Melrose, Frankincense, Purification, and Melaleuca dripped directly on the wound and took the RC, Thieves, Oregano, Lemongrass and Christmas Spirit by capsule. I was also taking two Inner Defense capsules per day and drinking NingXia Red but didn't start those two until about 3 weeks into this as I didn't have any.

The essential oils did great! I also lightly packed it so it healed slowly from the inside out. I put Animal Scents ointment around it too. As of October 8th, there is barely anything there, just a small reddish line.
