Tea Tree Oil in the Tropics

I'm an expat who spends most of my time living on the tropical island paradise of legendary Bali. I have had no particular tropics-related problems for the past two years, but 3 weeks ago I developed a strange localized outbreak on the back of my leg. The doctor said it was probably a herpes infection and gave me oral and topical prescription remedies. I finished the 5-day pill regimen and had used the cream throughout, but the redness remained. I am new to Tea Tree Oil, so I didn't think to try it at first. But in an effort to get rid of the red marks remaining on my leg, I did some extensive research about tea tree oil and decided to give it a try -- it worked! The redness has faded away and so has the infection. My husband is quite susceptible to these tropical skin afflictions, and I will be turning to tea tree oil more often as a first option.

P.S. In the course of my research I stumbled upon this website and am happy I did.
