Making a Poultice for Treating Cellulitis Infections

I have a problem with recurring staph infections from cellulitis. Does anyone have a solution using a strong poultice?

Hello ! As a person who suffers from quite a few abcesses and infections, I ran across this poultice, and it's a life saver ! I apply as soon as I notice any swelling or redness. Within 2 - 3 days, it's almost as if it had never happened. Sometimes it brings it to a head, but most of the time it just disappears as if it never existed ! Apply it daily for as long as needed (2-3 days for me )
Basic Formula -

Bread (any kind, rolls, buns, sliced, stale or fresh)


Add enough milk to the bread to make a mush. Heat until hot and apply to skin as soon as it's cool enough to stand it. Cover with a bandage and wrap. Leave on for 24 hours. Change daily.


Extra help - through experimenting, I have found a few things that help speed the process but aren't mandatory. Add one or all of these to the basic poultice-

A few drops of tea tree oil (anti bacterial, anti viral, anti fungal)
A spoonful of honey ( anti bacterial)
A spoonful of activated charcoal (help draw out the yuckyness)
A spoonful of bentonite clay (same as charcoal)

Hope this helps !
