Chronic Skin Abscess

Traditional Treatment

To treat all the abscess, we opened them up and drained and treated them all separately.

Ralph was put on various of different courses of antibiotics over the course of the months.

We also carefully scrubbed his wounds weekly with manuka honey, neem oil and salt.

His skin had a poor response to the different antibiotics and cleansing after 12 months.

We started Ralph on laser therapy.

Ralph had a starting regeim of Laser treatment 2 times a week for 2 months followed by laser treatment sessions once a week.
