Staph infection eczema

Common Questions and Answers about Staph infection eczema


Avatar m tn I went to another doctor for a second opinion and he told me the same thing but diagnosed it as a staph infection, prescribed cream that didn't seem to be effective. So I came back to the 2nd dermatologist and got a skin culture done to a blister around genital the area 9 months after the initial outbreak. It was negative for herpes and a staph infection.
Avatar n tn It could be a fungus or maybe eczema. Try Lamisil cream first and see if it goes away after a few days. Don't scratch and wash your hands well after applying the cream. If it doesn't work within a week (with no scratching). You may want to see a doctor about it if that doesn't work. Eczema is very itchy and usually isn't on the bottom of the feet but it could be. If so, then don't scratch and keep it well moisturized.
Avatar n tn It's eczema not an infection. There is no cure. steroids just tune down the response of your immune system. I wouldn't use steroids if I were you. The doctors prescribe them, but the people that deal with eczema on a daily basis don't use them. They make it much worse in the long run. Eczema will pop up occasionally, it is becoming more of a problem. Just look at this board. Thousands of adults that never had any skin problems are now afflicted with this horrible disease.
Avatar m tn m concerned about a staph infection or something of that sort. Any ideas what it could be? Should he see a doctor and how soon is it okay to wait and monitor? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Hi, My son also suffers from MRSA breakouts as well as staph rashes and eczema. (Eczema usually precedes the staph outbreaks) I've been trying to take the natural route along with conventional medicine. So far, I've found that this has been the most effective: Manuka honey- inhibits the bacteria from reproducing. You can use it straight from a jar or buy special creams from Amazon. Tea Tree Oil Soap/ Oil- I use the soap daily. You can actually buy a soap called "Defense".
Avatar n tn Jock itch, staph, dermatitis, eczema, etc. You need to see a doctor.
Avatar n tn In the past it has become infected with staph and was treated with antibiotics. I use mild cetaphyl soap and eucerin to calm it. Sometimes I use olive or coconut oil. I suspect it may be seborrheic dermatitis, and have also used t-gel shampoo as face wash. Everything I use relieves the symptoms a little, then it flares back up with a mind of its own. I don't want to use steroids, because they feed bacteria.
Avatar m tn If your hands are cracked, you should reconsider hand jobs, though. If someone has a fungal or other bacterial infection (staph, MRSA, etc.), you could easily get that on your hands.
Avatar f tn Is it Staph epidermidis or Staph aureus. Ask them about that too. If staph epi then it is just normal bacteria and doesn't need treatment if Staph aureus it depends on how much you have of it. If only a few bacteria then they may not treat it but if you have a lot then they will give you an antibiotic. It depends on how what term you are in in your pregnancy if they can give you antibiotics. But the antifungal is a topcial so it should be okay.
544175 tn?1232318506 I am wondering if any or all of these symptoms could indicate an underlying systematic infection such as staph? Or perhaps an auto-immune disorder (my aunt has fibromyalgia and both her and I have both had vulvar vestibulitis which is a rare disease affecting the skin of the vulva - I had vestibulectomy 10 years ago to remove the problem). I am inclined to believe that even if it is as simple as eczema, there is a root cause which I need to discover to prevent future illnesses.
Avatar f tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be contact dermatitis, folliculitis, staph infection or eczema rash. Folliculitis is the inflammation of one or more hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the skin. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema.
Avatar n tn No its not in any other places just the one :) okaay that is such a relief. Could it be and other S.T.D ? ? and what do you think the rash is? Its Really itchy and reddish im pretty sure its only eczema but im still not sure.. Or do you think im just being really paranoid?
Avatar n tn Then I started to get sore throat and 2 or 3 days after this a patch of eczema i had been scratching got infected with something my DR said was a staph infection (i never had this before even though i had eczema all of my adult life) Also at this time started to get muscle and joint aches. By this time was worried about hiv being the cause of these things. Started to feel better but then a month later after being treated with antibiotics for a throat infection i developed thrush in my tongue.
Avatar m tn Several months ago i started to have a mild acne on my forehead, I did some exams and came out positive for staph aureus infection and staph epidermidis in two different labs. I took a treatment with antibiotics called ofloxacin 400 mg for ten days, my tests showed to be sensible to this drug. During the treatment the acne almost vanished but after i stopped it the situation was as bad as always.
Avatar m tn Hello, Since you are having staph infection, so if your girlfriend has been diagnosed with staph infection then chances are there that the infection got transmitted during physical contact like sexual contact or skin to skin contact. It is very surprising that the infection has not shown much results with antibiotics, In such cases, it is advisable to get the culture sample from the sores and a biopsy skin done which will confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Through further research, I have discovered that what I have is a skin infection called Impetigo. Which, what I learned is caused by the staph and strep bacterium. Antibiotics are the answer. It makes a lot of sense in a very humid environment like south Florida. There is always some strange affliction to deal with here.
Avatar m tn I have been getting painful bumps. First on my Ears, then my hands and then my feet, some are larger, others smaller, initially it was thought that there were cysts on my ears but that was later ruled out by a physician. They are red in color ,they itch, sometimes burn, cause me pain and swelling as well as. Heat seems to increase the pain and swelling but oddly cold relieves the pain and swelling.
Avatar m tn About two months ago my hands started to break out with small blisters that after doing some research online resembled dyshydrotic eczema and then they went away in about a month. I was reading that that type of eczema can be caused as an ID reaction to a fungal infection. I am not sure what is going on, but need some advice from a dermatologist whereas the military doctors are more general practice and probably have not dealt with this stuff very often.
