Scientific evidence?: Osteomyelitis is a very difficult problem to have and to treat. The key to success is complete removal of all non-viable tissue. A deep infection should be treated aggressively (as if it were cancer), leaving no suspicious tissue behind. If that somehow cannot be done where you are, seek higher level of care at a university medical center. This is not the time to go with unproven treatment.
