  • Just close your eyes tight, but not too tight, so you can get it all over the eyelid
  • Yes, but you probably still want to go to the doctor Tea tree oil will probably kill off a bunch of them and help with the itching
  • No However, tea tree oil can be good for preventionCommunity QA Not really. You can wear it as a lotion (by mixing it with coconut oil) to help protect yourself from infection when dealing with patients who have MRSA
  • Not really Tea tree oil (TTO) is an essential oil that helps your body activate antibacterial and antiviral properties Putting natural oils on scar tissues can be a good thing, as your skin can use the softening, but something simpler, like coconut oil, would soften just as well TTO would just prevent the scar from getting infected You can add two drops of TTO to a half cup of coconut oil to make a healing balm for your scars It is not going to take them away, but rather soften them as they heal
