@ocelot60- There is a very good reason why using natural antibiotics for any issue before seeking medical attention isn't a good idea. That reason is that by the time you realize that the natural remedy isn't working, your infection could become very serious and more difficult to treat with any type of antibiotic.
There are many types of bacterial infections, and some are more resistant to medications than others. Some are definitely too serious to respond to a natural antibiotic. However, only a doctor can tell for sure and advise the patient about the best medications to treat his or her infection. Trying to treat on your own is just too risky, and should never be done without approval from a doctor.
