Top 5 Natural Remedies Against MRSA

MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a type of infection that has developed resistance to a variety of common antibiotics. The bacteria itself is common and can be found on our skin and in our nose, but there also cases where it spreads too much, leading to various types of infections. These are contagious, and the fact that they are difficult to treat with antibiotics makes them a common health problem of our time. The two common types are HA-MRSA (Healthcare-associated MRSA and CA-MRSA (community-associated MRSA).


Symptoms of HA-MRSA include skin infections such as rashes, muscle aches, fever, coughs, chest pain, weak immune, fatigue, a weak immunity system and more. This is a dangerous infection that demands medical care.

CA-MRSA is less dangerous and can be fought using common home ingredients. Symptoms include skin infections in hairy areas of the skin or those that have been wounded. Swollen, red, painful bumps can appear, eliminating liquids such as pus.

Here are our top 5 solutions against MRSA:

This plant is well known for its ability to fight bacteria at the skin level, being used against rashes, acne, wounds and many other problems. It has been found in studies to be an effective solution against drug-resistant bacteria as well.

This is how you use it: place two tablespoons of its gel into a bowl. Add three teaspoons of turmeric and mix it. Apply it on the infected area and leave it to act over the night, by securing the place with a cloth or bandage.

  • Garlic

Garlic can regulate the pH level of your skin and act as an antibiotic, making it difficult for bacteria to thrive.

  • Turmeric

Turmeric is a natural antibacterial that is excellent against skin infections, eliminating the causes and helping the area heal faster.

You can mix turmeric powder with coconut oil and apply it to your infected area twice a day, leaving it to act for a few hours each time. You can also use it in your dishes.

  • Tea Tree Oil

Due to its powerful antibiotic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, tea tree oil has shown plenty of promise in tests against MRSA. Mix 2-3 drops of this oil with any other oil suited for massages and let it act on the infected skin for a few hours. Do it three times a day.

It is important not to add it undiluted on your wounds, as it can be painful.
