While weeping eczema seems to be a diagnosis with one of a few potential causes, impetigo is specifically bacterially-mediated.

Our Soothing Skin Extra is blended specifically as an inflammation reducer and supporter of skin healing in such conditions, though it does not include an antibacterial. We HIGHLY recommend the use of "Benchmark" Thyme essential oil in addition for cases of weeping eczema and impetigo. It is a far more comprehensive antibacterial than Tea Tree - in fact, it's the only single essential oil shown to be effective against the MRSA bacteria - meaning completely effective, not just partially, and effective on its own, not in a blend.

The Soothing Skin Extra has been lauded by our customers for its efficacy at reducing inflammation in dry eczema, and with the addition of an anti-bacterial, should do wonders.

The Benchmark Thyme can be added to the Soothing Skin Extra at a 3% concentration, or about 15 drops per each ounce of blend. Apply twice daily.

I recently had a case of eczema that ended up getting infected with staph. "Atopic dermatitis with associated staph infection". The weeping fluid came back positive for staph aureus but not MRSA. I tried some blends of EO topically but everything seemed to make it itch more. (It was a maddening itch!). So, I used the antibiotic prescription salve on my foot and took oregano oil internally which helped. I also have issues with candida, so I wanted something that could potentially kill both. I may try benchmark thyme next. Will it also kill candida?

Don't know somehow I'm allergy with thyme :(
And I was recommended that Lavender oil or tea tree oil also can treat impetigo very well. So I decided to tried tea tree oil after searching on internet for more infomation (I read many articles but this is the one I trusted most ... -impetigo/)
Each person has their own skin condition, and I find that tea tree oil works best for me :)
