Tea tree oil has been shown to have antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

 

One studied compared treatment with mupirocin 2% nasal ointment, chlorhexidine 4% soap and silver sulfadiazine 1% cream versus a tea tree oil regimen that included a tea tree 10% cream and tea tree 5% body wash. There was no significant difference in efficacy between the two programs and both were shown to be effective against MRSA.4


As reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute:

There was a fourfold increase in risk of melanoma of all types when sun-induced growths were present on the face.

This relationship with lesions known to be associated with high-dose solar UV irradiation supports the observation that heavy sun exposure was associated with an increased risk of malignant melanoma.

Action to be taken: if you have sun damage on your face then make sure you get your skin checked regularly.
