I agree this will work very well and can even replace a medication if the infection is not too advanced, if the snake is open mouth breathing this is a sign of the infection getting advanced and this is the stage vetenary care needs to replace the alternative RI treatment IMO or the two can be used together to speed up the process. Its your call really which way to go with it, even when this treatment is being used you should however keep a very close eye on the snake just incase.http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/snakes/400758-alternative-r-i-treatment.html that works a treat.
Make sure your temperatures are right too, round 92F hot end and 80-83cool.
