Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy). ?

Oregano oil kills viruses, fungi & bacteria so is reasonable to take as well. Also consider pelargonium sidoides (sold as umcka), an herb proven effective for sinus infections. I also advise taking a probiotic for anyone on antibioitics. ...Read more

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?
Unlikely unless...: Oil of oregano may cause rashes when applied topically but may rarely cause rashes when taken internally in people who are allergic to oregano. It is far more likely this is related to intestinal yeast. You can try a cream with tea tree oil on your rash. I advise you also take probiotics and follow a diet low in simple carbs.
