Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash mrsa

Avatar m tn My husband has bad reactions from Purex detergent and he has the same issue that happens just like that. A secondary infection like MRSA can happen if the rash isn't properly taken care of as soon as it appears. Try to think if there has been any changes in anything that can touch down there, including your cup if you play sports.
Avatar f tn Hello, in 2005 my mother was diagnosed with MRSA due to drainage from a back surgery and one day she woke up not feeling good and when we got her to hospital MRSA had invaded her entire body and my mom almost died. However the MRSA caused her to loose her ability to walk, control her bowel and bladder and it destroyed the nerves and after having MRSA, she constantly got infections of other kinds.
Avatar f tn My friends daughter (43 years old and formerly extremely healthy) died suddenly and unexpectedly from what was later diagnosed as MRSA pnuemonia. She had no sores or rash, and did not know she had the disease. Her husband was later diagnosed with MRSA..and has been told by doctors he is a MRSA carrier. I have a family member who was just diagnosed with pnuemonia...who was extremely exposed to a person who formerly had MRSA, and who was bleeding onto her..her face, nose, eyes and uppper body.
Avatar f tn There is no rash before i scratch and the skin does not feel dry however afterwards the skin becomes red and bumpy which disappears quickly. I have been in and out of the doctors office with diagnoses of eczema and chronic dry skin. I've also been recently diagnosed with mrsa. I have been put on antihistamines with no improvement. I have been put on antidepressants to control the itch with little to no relief.
Avatar n tn For the past 3 weeks I have had a skin rash on my right arm. It appears to be red and blotchy and there are little red bumps all around it. It started out looking just like a pimple, and I bothered it alittle and then it spread all over my arm. At first my mom thought it was ringworm, but it spread much worse after that. I went to the doctors and they didn't know exactly what it was so they gave me some fungal cream and steriods to take away the itch. Didn't work.

Avatar n tn I'm 19 and around December of last year I noticed two small holes (one under each armpit). They have since closed but now for the past 5 weeks I've had a nasty rash under each arm, They are both secreting a clear, strange smelling liquid and burn every time a shirt, rag, or any type of fabric touches it, The coloration of the rash is a reddish brown color.
Avatar n tn Its kind of hard to determine without seeing the actual sores, but it could be staph infection. MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) which is a type of staph infection is serious, if MRSA is suspected she should be taken to a doc asap. Staph can progress to impetigo (crusting of the skin) which might explain the area above her ear. Can you image search staph or MRSA and maybe give us a good description of the pustules?
Avatar m tn It looks possible then that you are correct in thinking that the problem is not MRSA, but the MRSA is coincidentally there - where it can normally be without causing any problem. If you have petechiae, then you might expect to see also bleeding from the gums, or else easy bruising anywhere.

Avatar f tn I went to the dermatologist and she said it looked like staph. I have had a few before and one time I had MRSA. I have a skin condition (hidredentitus supperitiva) and I also have a weakened immune system due to ulcerative colitis. When I have had them in the past I haven't really googled or looked into it. I have taken antibiotics and gone about my day. This time, now that I am older, I googled. I AM NOW PETRIFIED. Here are my concerns. 1.
Avatar f tn I just started laying in the tanning bed and i have developed a rash on my butt its about as big as a dime and has lil blisters in it. The past two years that i have tanned i have got it and it will stay for about a week and then go away and not come back un til next year when i start tanning. What is it and how can i stop it from coming back?
Avatar m tn I'm really not sure what it is if i'm honest, most of the forum topics i've looked at point to simple skin irritation but I thought i'd better sorta verify it so yeah. Just at the base of my penis, right around where the hair is growing (and in it to an extent) i've got this really painful sort of rash-type symptom, it appears as a rash, but then the skin seems to go dry if it's knocked or stretched etc.
974371 tn?1424653129 My skin is really thinning the past year ( I am only 62) so she did a number! I immediately cleaned it and had been keeping Neosporin on it. About 2 1/2 weeks later, I saw a small pustule above it and nor on my side just above my bra line. Broke both of those, cleaned the areas and applied Neosporin. Oh the initial scrated was oozing a bit. Next day the one on my arm was filled up again so called my PCP. He did a culture, prescribed generic Bactrim and generic Bactroban.
Avatar f tn I also have extremely reactive skin. If you brush against my face or my arms it will leave a rash that burns temporarily and then is present on my skin for about an hour. I had a skin prick allergy test and I reacted to everything, even the negative control. I bruise very easily. and m y skin sometimes breaks easily with frequent cuts. I have been to so many specialists and my pcp has given up on me and has diagnosed me as chronic fatigue by exclusion.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed bactrim as an antibiotic after a colonization of MRSA was found in my nose. Initially on Cephalaxin, for an abcess, but what switched over to bactrim, even though the abcess did not show any MRSA. I took my two pills for the day, and within 30 minutes after taking the last dose, my ankles began to itch... within another 30 minutes, it spread up my legs, I fell asleep, woke up, and the rash spread to my upper arms, my chest, and stomach (minimal in the last two areas).
Avatar f tn s best to avoid sexual contact with him until this is all clear. Watch out for itching or a rash on your skin -typically thigh area. Make sure you wash with an antibacterial soap and wear good cotton panties to help prevent infection.

Avatar f tn MRSA infections don't look like anything in particular. You can have mrsa in your lungs, your urine, your skin etc. I'm sure if they said mrsa to you with that last infection - it was cultured out of somewhere on you and that's why they said it. We healthcare folks take mrsa very seriously.
Avatar n tn Last Oct 31, 2010 I received oral sex and fingered (sorry for the bluntess) a girl I did not know. Recently, I got an HIV test that came back negative. However, for the past 3 weeks or so, say late late December or early January, I got perynichea (sp?) after biting a hangnail . After about a week, i went to doctor and he said it hadnt come to a head yet, but when it does, to lance it with a sterile pin. and gave me some antibiotics. A day or two after that visit, I saw a white head come to it.
Avatar n tn The bacteria must have a place to enter into the body and go into the blood stream, so it can enter through cuts, scrapes, wounds or even areas of the skin that are weak or broken. The elderly are especially susceptible to MRSA due to their thinner skin, and people with psoriasis and eczema are also at a higher risk of contracting the bacteria. Secondly regarding surfaces.
Avatar n tn I have had MRSA several times. The last one was in my mastoid bone in both ears that was cleared up this past January. Well I have come down with a boil on the left side of my face next to the eye that was lanced and cultured today. It hurts like hell and it has a bandage that covers it. Now it is starting to itch. I also have a boil on my eyelid that is continuing to grow. It was nothing last night and now it has become big enough to where the eye looks swollen.
