Natural Remedies As Alternatives To Antibiotics Common infections such as impetigo, also known as 'school sores' could once be treated quite simply with gentian violet until around 2000, when the drug companies suddenly insisted that this remedy be removed from the chemist shops, or pharmacies, in New Zealand and Australia.
