I also have cyst on my kidneys and ICS and IBS and 5 torn disc.I am 38 and also have the bones of a 78 year old on my bone scan. I am allergic to almost every antibodic which either breaks me out with welps the size of golf balls and brusies or makes my stomach spasm and hurts to the point I want to pass out and have severe dirarah and sweat.
Avatar n tn They also took some tests to see if i have a certain kind of staph infection that I cannot remember at the moment. Just tonight my left leg and foot both feel as cold as if the nerves are being pinched. What exactly is going on? and what else can I do about this?

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.
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 m tn The black liquid sounds like it could possibly be old blood. She may have been bitten by an insect, a possible staph infection or several other things. This same exact thing happened with my nephew and come to find out he had a bad case of athletes foot. Antibiotics cleared it up. Please let us know what the hospital says. I hope it's nothing serious.
Avatar m tn My dermatologist said that I will basically have a staph infection forever and will have to treat is as needed. Is this a proper diagnosis? Why can't I get rid of it? I have already tried antibiotics and other drugs that have helped for a while but it comes back.
Avatar n tn Currently, my husband has a staph infection and is on antibiotics. This is number 4 outbreak in a year. He has never had any staph infection before and has an autoimmune disorder since his youth. He suffers from hypothyroidism and alopecia. Why now? How do we get rid of it and is this going to be an issue for a long period. As my son too has an autoimmune disorder, alopecia should I be concern for him as well?
Avatar n tn Folicullitis is usually from staph. Under-skin infection may be from staph or strep. Infection usually invades under the skin if there is any (even slight) skin injury, fissure If it was contact dermatitis (soap, new clothes or washing detergent), there wouldn't be under-skin fluid, I guess. It may help, if you check in google using "staph scrotum", "celullitis", "staphylococcus groin", "streptococcus groin" and related terms.
Avatar n tn can a recurrent staph infection caused by a foreign body left from surgery cause permanent nerve damge?

Avatar m tn So a few weeks ago I got this big boil on my waist that was like an ingrown hair and eventually after about a week went away on its own. You could still see discoloration there but there's no bump and no more pain. However, now I have one on my butt and it's almost the same thing. So I went to the doctor and they told me that it's a bad staph infection and they prescribed me Bactrim. Before I took it the boil was very painful and it hurt to even sit down.
Avatar n tn It can be due to contact dermatitis, phytophotodermatitis, bullous staph infection, pompholyx or dyshidrotic eczema, erythema multiforme or dermatitis herpetiformis. To confirm the diagnosis, I suggest you to get it examined from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Yes. Staph infections are from a type of bacteria- staphylococcal. It can cause TONS of different problems and is easily spread to others. For 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.
1415174 tn?1453243103 Also, it is harder to treat if the bacteria becomes resistant. One resistant type of Staph is Staph aureus. This Staph can become resistant to multiple antibiotics. It is also referred to as MRSA short for Methicillin Resistant Staph aureus. Methicillin is one type of antibiotic. So it is possible that he had a resistant strain of staph or a toxin caused by a Strep. Did you find out the type of bacteria?
Avatar m tn Oh so I looked it up and that is just a cute name for staph infection yeah people with HIV get staph bumps but so do people without HIV. I got it last year it is a pain to get rid of see a dr cause staph is dangerous. When I had staph I thought maybe I had HIV and I got tested and I did not have HIV. I learned symptoms don't mean anything !
Avatar m tn Dude,I had a friend with a staph infection on has leg and next thing you know his girl had it on her butt cheek.then ended up in the hosptial not sure why .because I didnt want to no.Be careful staph is deadly when it gets in the blood system.
Avatar m tn 14 months ago (March 2011), a podiatrist injected steroids into my staph infection, assuming without a blood test, that it was gout. Then he sent me for a blood test, no gout/uric acid, was a staph infection. 29 hours after the injection, I was in emergency and had 3 operations over 10 days to stop the raging, steroid infused staph infection.
Avatar f tn This summer I thought I had acne, but I just went to the Doctor and I have a staph infection on my face. I have been on antibiotics for the last five months and have taken various forms of antibiotics(Keflex, doxycycline, minocycline, tetracycline) and I was wondering how long does it take for the blisters to completely stop?
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms, it can be contact dermatitis , allergic reaction, friction blisters, bullous staph infection or pompholyx. Wear shoes that fit properly and keep feet as dry as possible. Wearing wet shoes, boots and socks will increase your chance of developing blisters. So change socks regularly. Also take antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin if the lesions are itchy. And use foot powder to help keep your feet dry.
Avatar n tn Staph is a bacterial infection. Some kinds of staph are very hard to kill, like the MERSA that has been in the news. Do you have hep c and also a staph infection?
402056 tn?1201542188 s doctor. Any 101 on staph infection would have to be based on intimate knowledge of the specific staph involved, the extent of the pneumonia, and based on his general health and the response thus far to antibiotic therapy, the likelihood of his recovering.
Avatar f tn You will not get HiV from a mani/pedi but you could get a really nasty Staph infection like my mom did when they sliced her foot open during a pedi. She is fine but the staph infection took a long time to clear up. None of that has anything at all to do with HIV and staph infection is very common at those nail places.
