29 Comments for the Infection Home Remedy


Bacon works! I had an infection in my big toe, on the side, between my skin and nail. I'm not sure how it happened. I was about to go to the drs., but read the bacon suggestion. I wrapped 1 slice of bacon around my toe and put my foot ina plastic bag, without securing the top. My infection is now gone. Try it, it worked, and my infected toe was sore and looked rather bad.

I know for a fact that I had an ingrown toenail that was very painful and I was told to wrap a penny in bacon and tape it to the toe. The pain left immediately and I can attest to the fact that it worked. My mom has an ingrown toenail and it is painful and infected I was just looking for others who have used the bacon remedy


35 years ago when I was I had a nasty ingrown nail and had surgery. It got infected bad. Kept going to dr and taking meds. Then my grandmother went into action and wrapped bacon around my toe. Three days later infection was gone and I could put my shoes on again. I have used some of her remedies to this day.


It is salt in the bacon and you can leave it for 4 hours and put a new piece again. It is very old European remedy. And it works very well since fat keeps the salt in place.


My mom used to do that to us kids growing up and it really works. I don't know why it does, but it does.


My mom told me to try this bacon thing a few years ago, I thought what the heck I have nothing to lose but everything to gain. I put a raw piece of bacon around my big toe left it there for about 20 minutes I did this for approximately 3 to 4 days and I was shocked it was gone. All healed up. I won't lie at first I was very skeptical and thought she was nuts but overall it's saved a visit to the doctor and my foot was healed. And you're right it is the salt that pulled the infection out and bacon is loaded with sodium so word of advice do not use low sodium bacon... lol.


What else can i use it for? I have no infection and it's going to go bad quickly!! LOL.


I think I have the same infection. Last night I wrapped it in bacon and put a sock over it. Did yours hurt worse? Mine hurt so much when I woke up but I can tell that the swelling is down tremendously.


My mother always put raw bacon on a infection . With seven kids she didn’t run to the doctors. Back then they made house calls . Lol But if you put raw bacon on a wound it cools it and soothes it instantly. The salt draws out the infection .


I had an infected toe due to a cyst (mucous). Went to doctor and was prescribed Cipro. Had terrible reaction (partial paralysis) I was told to try bacon wrapped around my toe. Guess what? It worked. Neither the cyst nor the infection has returned. You laugh and make fun of folks that use natural remedies. What's the problem? These have been used for centuries. No, the Pharma companies did not profit. Nothing else worked. No pain, simple and effective. (I did have to lock my cat out of the bedroom---loves bacon) Honey has similar properties. Some mentioned salt may have been the cure. Could it have been the nitrates? Next time, go see Doctor Oscar Meyer. Save a bundle and have breakfast too. Don't knock it until you have tried it.
