I'm not sure what you mean by using antibiotics for a cut on your finger. Are you sure it was infected, or just red? It looks red because the body's immune system is working to heal it. If it's infected, it would form pus or something that looks a lot worse than a cut. With a cut, you usually, if you use natural remedies, would just clean it well with soap and water, put something like tea tree oil on it, and put a Band-Aid on it. If it was so bad as to be badly infected, it would most likely have been pulsating and the pain would be pretty bad and you'd have seen a doctor. So I assume you put some OTC topical ointments on it. Chamomile oil doesn't actually tell us what you used. There are a lot of different ways to make a product that could be called chamomile oil. If it was pure essential oil of the chamomile plant, and there are different types of chamomile, it would be an alcohol extract. At best, it might calm the area down a bit, but chamomile isn't a strong anti-biotic. It has some properties, but not enough for that purpose. Usually for healing a cut you'd go to tea tree oil or neem oil or aloe vera concentrate or something like that, but really, cleaning a cut that isn't bad enough to go the doc for and putting a Band-Aid on it pretty much takes care of it. Please don't put chamomile oil in your Mom's eye. Just putting warm water on a wash rag and putting on the stye for a few days might help. But if you're using an alcohol extract you obviously don't want that near the eye. As for MRSA, this is a horrid infection that I think comes about from antibiotic resistant staph bactera. Anyone who has this is in for a rough time and needs a specialist. Chamomile won't do a thing about it. Whether stronger antibiotic plants such as tea tree, garlic, neem, etc. have ever been tried because the body isn't resistant to them is unlikely, as plants are not as strong, but I have no idea if they've ever been investigated. I think they deal with it by using a stew of antibiotics in the hopes something will still work. This infection I believe came about because of the extreme overuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics.
Thanks for that. I have had HSV infections too over many years and the Chamomile Oil has been mainstay in the treatment of it. I have to use Aciclovir tablets as a general rule to suppress the virus and when it does flare up the chamomile oil is top of the list.
The Oil has had a bigger effect on my finger problem than the Baclofen in my present infection. It's certainly a serious finger infection and more swollen than this image below (not my finger- just off google images)
Just think it's worth a go and worth studying some more as resistance to these infections is becoming a big problem.
Just seen my chamomile oil was 100% pure so no other ingredients :)
