I'm starting to notice a bigger change in the papules. However, to be honest I'm getting impatient! I don't know why. It will take time for them to heal regardless of treatment. Especially, when you see a photo of them at the microscopic level. It is amazing how deep this infection runs into the dermis. That is what keeps my urge to pop them under control. And OH do I just want to prematurely rupture the little buggers. To be fair, I'm a chronic zit popper. Ask my husband, I pop his too! However, to prematurely rupture them, would lead to large scars.
Day 2 (Saturday) the treatment went as normal (mixture applied twice a day). However on day 3 (Sunday) Hayley had a bath a few hrs after applying the morning treatment. I decided to reapply after her bath making 3 applications on that day.
Today (day 4, Monday) I have mixed up another natural MC topical treatment based on the one, I got over the phone with Dr. Mena on Friday.
MC Topical Treatment #2
1 Table spoon extra virgin coconut oil
5 drops lavender oil
8 drops tea tree oil
8 drops oregano oil
I plan to use MCTT #1 morning and night then apply MCTT #2 about mid day for the rest of the treatment period (until gone). Here is how those papules are healing day 2-4 =-)
^This is an evolving papule on her chest. Sorry my photos are not consistent quality. However, if yo look close the HARD center is beginning to work its way out.
^ You can see larger change, with this large papule on her neck. The hard center is working its way out of the papule.
For an even better view of healing check these out:
^ day 1 vs day 4: Once again sorry for the quality inconsistency. However, by looking close, you can see the center of that second photo the center is wider allowing more of the hard piece to come out of the papule.
^ This show some amazing difference. Day 0 vs Day 4!
