I read that you have to mix the oil with water. Is that what you did? Or did you just leave it alone. I have it on my eyelid and I don't want it to spread. I know oil spread on the skin will it spread?


I have been suffering from ring worm for few months and it was driving me crazy. I came to this site and decided to try applying pure tea tree oil. I tried for few weeks and it gave relief, seemed to get better but then it came back again. I applied the oil on the affected area twice a day. So, I decided to mix tea tree oil with FUCICORT an anti biotic /corticosteroid cream (good for red,itchy and infected eczema).
The next day, the itch was gone. It was so wonderful. I used to wake up in middle of nite awoken by the itichness.
So go try it. After shower, rub tree tree oil over affected area. Then let it sink for a few minutes. Next apply Fucicort cream over the tea tree oil. A combination of both works for me.


I have impetigo on my face and was unsure about mixing tea tree oil with Fucicort, thank you for the suggestion very helpful. Hopefully tomorrow the itchiness will go away.
