I had lung surgery and developed a wound infection postop. Back to the operating room twice for this. The second time MRSA set in and the usual antibiotics used for MRSA were not working.

I had to use Dakins's twice, once for a an infected cut on my knee that that was 2 inches open. Both times I used it, Dakins's healed my sores within one to two weeks depending on the severity. Swear by it!
