    Is lysigin just used as a preventative vaccination? Or can it be used to treat staph on the exterior of the udder? If so, is it a different protocol?

    What if the doe aready has staph in her milk? Does it treat that?

    I've given my does their first lysigin vaccination - just trying to understand better how it works.

    Thanks,
    PJ

    No vaccination treats disease, it would be an antitoxin or antiserum. So yes in this sense, Lysigin is prevention. Vicki

    OK - on one of the other lysigin threads, someone said:

    I used lysigin when I had a doe break out with small bumps on her udder to help clear it. THEN, I just vaccinated the whole lot of them to keep it from spreading.

    So I was curious if in higher than vacc dosages it could be used as a treatment.

    Vaccine can stimulate immunity, so maybe it could jump start the does natural ability to get rid of the staph. But along with using lysigin comes the info on using chlorhexideen from us also, and that is what clears the staph, that an not messing with it, and summer coming! Vicki
