Neem oil saved my skin

I had an infection ie. ulcer like sores on my legs and arms from Golden Staph. Doctors prescribed antibiotics which healed the Golden Staph but the ulcers would not heal even though I had numerous swab tests regularly for 6 or more months which all came back with no infection present.
Luckily I was in a garden and herb centre and mentioned to the owner about my sores and she had no hesitation in recommending neem oil. I was willing to try anything as I was starting to worry. The lady told me to bathe then pat dry and dab neem oil on and around sores. Within a few days I started to notice the sores not weeping at all and the redness going away.
I continued using the oil for a week or two and they finally healed.I was elated and have sung its praises ever since, now being about 5 years and no recurrence of sores. I have tried to get neem oil in pharmacies and I have yet to come across it since. I would recommend neem to anyone for antiseptic care and will definitely try it for the other uses mentioned here.
