    A very useful post. Would like to add these:
    1. Need to mention that Saribadyasava is also helpful in treating these infections with its detoxifying and blood purifying properties.
    2.Please mention what ointments (Ayurvedic) can be used while dressing the lesions.
    3.I don't agree about keeping the area moistened. Bacteria breed in moist environment. Avoid tight fitting clothes, abrasion. Keeping skin clean and dry will help prevent infection of the hair follicles.
    4. Dry skin problems, on the other hand, like eczema should be treated to prevent bacteria from entering.
    5. We are not just exposed to bacteria, different types of bacteria are present on our skin.
