infection

My boyfriend recently acquired a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> on the shaft of his penis. He started taking his medicine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the infection four days ago and they have already cut most of it out and told him he doesn't need to return unless he believes it to be getting worse. So my question is this, when will we be able to engage in any sexual activities, obviously when it no longer hurts but is there a certain time period to wait after he gets done with his medication?
Yes. St<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph infections are from a type of bacteria- staphylococcal. It can cause TONS of different problems and is easily spread to others. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> example- have you ever heard of MRSa outbreaks? That is a kind of staph that is drug resistant and it can spread very easily. Toxic Shock Syndrome, when a tampon leads to a build up of bacteria that gets into the blood stream and shuts down the body, is another kind of staph infection. This doesn't mean you definitely have it, but it's possible.
It turns out that I have been hosting a nasty St<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph aurius <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> in my sinuses and elsewhere. It is not technically MRSa, but it has become resistant against every oral antibiotic. We first tried Vancomycin. after a week, still had a feaver. Beginning the second week of the new combo of cubusin and Invanze. I am seeing an infectious disease doc. I finally called and left a message an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> my neuro about it yesterday. (He was in another town yesterday.
Either come clean with the prescribing doctor (after all, he SPECIFICaLLY asked about liver problems!) or see another doctor about your st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>.
She is now off of that but the dr's are saying that she has a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and is extemely contagious. They are saying that she is going to be unable to return here with me (where she has lived an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the past year, just by choice, not medical) This recent illness happened 4 hours away from our house, on our way to a funereal. I had to come back home and one of my aunts is staying there with her.
One of my little nephews (2 1/2 yrs old) may have MRSa-St<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. He got what looked like a little pimple on his nose and it turned black and started pussing and became infected. This was a 2-3 days ago. Yesterday we were all at DH's parents' house and the kids all play together. He mostly kept to himself (he's bashful) but he still handled toys that the other kids played with afterwards. None of us suspected Staph. We just thought he got a nasty bug bite or spider bite.

Hi Pete..ditto to CalGal's responses. Your daughter most likely contracted C Diff in hospital with a combination of exposure to the spores and unbalanced gut flora from antibiotics. Unan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>tunately, we have no way of knowing a particular hospital's C Diff stats as most states dont require reporting. I contracted it too, and wasnt even in a hospital - touched the wrong door knob according to my doc.
Hello, They seem like boils or furuncle. Boils are caused by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> of the hair follicle by st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph aureus. Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. abyone can develop a boil/furuncle and it is not necessary that it is not found in clean,hygienic people.
Large red itchy bump followed by sores/blisters on the bump, which seems to describe a herpes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> exactly. Could a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph or strep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> take on the same development pattern? I tried to check an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> hairs growing out of individual sores but I couldn't really tell. The problem is that I put bandages on the thing a few times early on and those ripped basically all the hair out. I doubt that helped the infection. I make all kinds of good decisions.
Bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e I took those antibiotics my body was in perfect health, always atheletic and no problems. after that yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> i got st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph, which i never had bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e, and my nuts itch although not red or anything, I just never had itchy nuts bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e that. So my question is. Did those antibiotics totally mess up my bodies system, and will i ever have a normal groin again? and I am also wary about having sex if my groin itches. What do i do?
The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. This is different from a bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. a viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. a virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
I am sorry but the person who has the st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> shouldn't have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> exposed. and THEY should be taking proper precaution an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> their own good as well as yours. but I would make sure to wash wash wash if you do come into contact with this person. I personally would see ow if this one person is always getting these infections maybe suggest to the landlord or matience person that they be allowed to use a specific washer and dryer.
I'm wondering if this is indeed a herpes recurrence or another st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I am going to get a blood test an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> herpes at a clinic as I am in between health care coverage so can't really see my derm an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> another culture. Thanks!
He is terminally ill with what started out as gangrene in his toe (inoperable because of other health conditions) and has now spread to a little above his ankle. I am concerned that on top of everything else this might be a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I mentioned it to his nurses and they said they'll mention it to his wound doctor on Monday. In the meantime do those of us who visit him have anything to worry about or should we take special an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>precautionsan>?
But after I used it i was reading the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>prec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>utions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> ( which I should of read bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e using the product) and it indicated that it should not be used by people with compromised immune system and not be used on open sores. I don't know if it was made by human or animal cells but it freaked me out since I had open sores and it came on my eyes . Is there a risk of hiv?
) Benedryl may help, but it won't fix it if the irritation source is still there...something else to consider...The area may now have a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> started...St<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph LOVES warm, moist spots with broken skin...If it is sore and hot, get your hiney in to the Dr...It may need an antibiotic as well as prednisone to get it under control...If the latter is the case, don't let it go...Staph can get worse rapidly and spread to your entire body...
Do I need to take extra <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>prec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>utions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>? 2) Is it possible I got this from my wife 40 days ago. She's not sick, but does get yeast infections after intercourse? Her gyno gives her some meds and she is fine again? She's my only partner an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 8 years? 3) MSRa is coag positive. Is there a resitance to Coag Neg Staph? What's the next step? 4) What other tests should I do to follow up? at least the lab decided it investigate further in order to identify it.
Well - you probably already know my saga - I got a "staph infection" from my tubal ligation. Spent a week in the hospital. Now, this past Tuesday, I got a call from my GYN saying I had MRSa. On Wednesday, I went to the follow up with the surgeon that was called in to oversee my hospital stay and he said I am cured and I had MSSa (Methicillin SENSITIVE Staph a). I went to my GYN an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> follow up yesterday, and he said I have MRSa not MSSa.
however if he is to have any dental work done he should be premedicated to avoid an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> on the valve leaflet and should stay away from anyone who has a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph infection because both of those could be very dangerous to people with severe MVP. The other thing you need to understand is that this is a support community and generally doctors are not on this site...
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> example, you probably are at no more risk than I am of getting, say, a st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> of your skin; but you probably are at higher risk an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> rapid progression or an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a complication like sepsis (bloodstream infection). Certainly there are no data to suggest that immunosuppressed people (e.g., persons with advanced HIV infection) are at any greater risk of catching gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, or syphilis if exposed.
They have a non-disclosure policy that prevents us from knowing if any of the people we are working with have any kind of communicable diseases. Naturally, the workers take sensible <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>prec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>utions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, but last year a friend contracted golden staph from his workplace. I guess there could be something I don't know about, but I have no way of finding out. any ideas? Thanks so much!
healed by day 5 post-exposure . bacterial culture showed st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ph +3 lesion 2:showed up by day 3 (diff appearance refer to thread) never went away was single scabed by day 4 then (after I put peroxide on it) turned bloody again by day 9 turned into vesicles clear fluid filled, by day 11-12 they had got bigger, joined, burst, and scabbed . all on a raised base/surface. they are a bunch of dots (scabs) now in a quarter sized area.
