DWSNBN losing effectiveness?
I have not seen any data on this subject at all so I offer my N-1.
I have been using it at the .200 level every approx 7 days for around a year and a half as an anti COVID measure. BUT, also, and very welcome, I quickly noticed that it quelled a dental infection completely and quickly. There were two or three times I probably got COVID and I upped the dose/timing for that at it worked quickly, with a day or less.
BUT, recently I have had to cut the time between doses to 4 or 5 days to keep the dental thing down.
That’s all, just a tiny data point with many variables.
I think of dental infections as bacterial. Not viral or parasitic!
RandomMike – I am a practicing dentist. Yes (to GardensAreGreat), dental infections are bacterial in origin, though some infections of the soft tissues can be caused by viruses. I’ve never seen any information regarding i-mectin for dental infections. The fact that you have had some relief in the past suggests that there may be some mechanism of action here. Since you are getting less relief, the bacteria involved are probably developing some resistance.
Best thing would be to see the dentist and have the situation taken care of. An antibiotic will not cure a dental infection, but only knock it down for awhile. Usually the source of the infection is within the tooth, so that needs to be treated, or removed for you to have a predictable result.
All the best, Brian
Guessing that most infections are inflammatory? Perhaps that might be the mechanism of relief, reducing the inflammation?
Dr Peter McC explained DWSNBN 1 and 2 have anti inflammatory benefits.
However, as DocBP says, get the damn tooth fixed. Covering over the pain is not a good strategy in the long run. Makes solving the real problem bigger and more $$.
