How to identify School Sores
When mozzie bites or eczema patches seem to have baby lesions.
The primary sore/bite is surrounded by little red dots/ circular sores.
School sores can spread quickly to other parts of the same body or to other family members.
Topical treatments are enough if school sores are treated quickly. If the infection takes hold an internal natural antibiotic will be necessary. Chemical antibiotics such as cephlex or dicloxacillin are necessary if the infection site is close to the brain or is not responding to internal natural antibiotics.
Be careful not to cross contaminate when applying.
You can use a combination of these treatments.
