Thanks for the kind words and don't worry about the negativity. I guess we're all quite used to the highs and lows of these types of condition. However, I should point out that I also used Batroban/Mupyrocin back in the States and it had little effect other than to exacerbate the oozing and general "messyness" of the condition. I suspect it's usage during this regime was purely secondary, to give the healing process a jump start before the battle of bacteria elimination began. Although it is still early days, I presume it will be a culmination of the combination punch of these to elements that they hope will bring about a weakening of the bacterial infection. Time will tell no doubt.
