    Spider bite or staph infection on my leg. Zyvox antibiotics, 10 pills, $886.94! Thank God for insurance! If not better by Saturday I'll have to have surgery. I could use some prayers please.

    Raw coconut oil is proven to kill staph. Look for the stuff that says virgin expellar pressed.
    Stay on your meds, but run this stuff in as well.
    ETA: its anti bacterial, anti fungul and anti viral, naturally. And it does not kill of the good bacteria that is needed to fight the bad stuff.
    Extensive studies have proven that coconut oil is more effective at conquering Staph, then any prescribed med in the world.

    Wow,, prayers and thoughts headed your way. Be careful using anything not prescribed, natural and homeopathic is great as long as you know you aren't allergic to anything and that the oils won't contain what needs to be expelled.
