It may be necessary to use a compounding pharmacy to use a anti-bacterial that will treat the ulcer. If he has been to a specialist I assume that the ulcer has been cultured and tested for susceptibility. If the proper antibiotics are being administered then a typical corneal ulcer should heal.
If the ulcer has been cultured and treated accordingly then there are other factors that are causing the ulcer. There is a possibility of the problem being caused by the Herpes Simplex virus or Ocular Cicatrical Pemphagoid.
Have your son see a corneal specialist, if that isn't one of the specialists he has seen. To give you a better answer I would need a fuller picture of the previous diagnosis's, cause of the ulcer and treatments that have been attempted already. Good luck with your son. I hope this helps.

Helicobacterpylori,what is it??


What is an H. pylori infection? H. pylori are spiral-shaped bacteria that grow in the digestive tract and have a tendency to attack the stomach lining. H. pylori infections are usually harmless, but they're responsible for the majority of ulcers in the stomach and small intestine.
H. pylori is a common type of bacteria that usually infects the stomach. They may be present in more than half of all people in the world, according to the Mayo Clinic. The "H" in the name is short for Helicobacter. "Helico" means spiral. The bacteria are spiral shaped.
H. pylori normally infect your stomach during childhood. While infections with this strain of bacteria typically don't cause symptoms, they can lead to diseases in some people, including peptic ulcers, and an inflammatory condition inside your stomach known as gastritis.
H. pylori are adapted to live in the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach. These bacteria can change the environment around them and reduce its acidity so they can survive. The shape of H. pylori allows them to penetrate your stomach lining, where they're protected by mucus and your body's immune cells are not able to reach them. The bacteria can interfere with your immune response and ensure that they're not destroyed. This can lead to stomach problems. Causes
What causes H. pylori infections? It's still not known exactly how H. pylori infections spread. The bacteria have coexisted with humans for many thousands of years. The infections are thought to spread from one person's mouth to another. They may also be transferred from poopystuff to the mouth. This can happen when a person does not wash their hands thoroughly after using the bathroom. H. pylori can also spread through contact with contaminated water or food.
The bacteria are believed to cause stomach problems when they penetrate the stomach's mucous lining and generate substances that neutralize stomach acids. This makes the stomach cells more vulnerable to the harsh acids. Stomach acid and H. pylori together irritate the stomach lining and may cause sores or peptic ulcers in your stomach or duodenum, which is the first part of your small intestine.

I accidentally let my cuticles grow out,now that I have pushed them back,they are kinda sore and the cuticle skin is dry and should I trim the excess skin off?


It is best to moisturise or soften cuticles before pushing them back and if they have grown long then pushing them back a little at a time is best.

I think it is best to leave the excess for a while unless it is a nuisance, leaving mother nature to heal the damage a little before going further. Be careful of possible infection in what are effectively self-inflicted wounds.

I advise the use of a soothing antiseptic ointment, preferably one with a mild local anaesthetic. In a few days when the soreness has disappeared you will be able to trim the excess as it becomes accessible - a little at a time.

What is the symptoms for tick fever


Symptoms and signs of tick bite fever If you get bitten by an infected tick, the incubation period (the period between being infected and displaying symptoms) is about five to seven days. Symptoms can vary, depending partly on the organism involved. Your age and underlying health may also influence the severity of the infection.
Typical features may include the presence of a black mark where the bite occurred, and fever, severe headache and a rash. The black mark at the site of the tick bite is called an eschar (or a tache noir), and looks like a small ulcer (2-5mm in diameter) with a black centre. It may look something like a spider bite. The eschars can be single or multiple and can sometimes be very difficult to find. The eschar usually appears once the fever appears, as does the headache and malaise (general feeling of ill-health). Lymph nodes near the eschar may be enlarged.
A rash is usually, but not always, a feature of tick bite fever (it is supposedly less likely to occur in someone infected by R. africae), but when it is present, it consists of small red marks on the skin, sometimes raised slightly above the surface. It typically starts on the limbs and spreads to the trunk, and can involve the entire body, including the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
