Avatar n tn I had a recent UTI with staph, and they gave me macrobid. I was also on bactrim for a staph infection on my skin, and that wasn't helping the UTI, so they gave me macrobid along with the staph.
Avatar m tn You may not have acne at all, but a staph infection. Usually what appears to be acne on the back, shoulder and derriere are actually cysts and boils caused by staphylococcus bacterium, which resides on the skin of humans but can cause serious medical problems if it gets beneath the surface and infects the blood. One type of staph infection leading to pimples is folliculitis, which creates clusters of acne-like breakouts.
Avatar m tn It sometims can be yellow or green if it is a staph infection or green if caused by another bacteria called pseudomonas. Staph is the most common. Try steaming yourself in the shower or using Vicks with a bowl of steaming hot water and try to open up your sinuses. However, you still may need an antibiotic.
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 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 n tn I had a break out in my mouth last week and by Friday I had a sore on the bottom of my foot that woke me up because of the pain shooting up my leg.

I have had these same sores for over 8 years and repeated upper respiratory infections.

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 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.
Avatar m tn t going to do anything etc. I did give him oral for all of 30 seconds, as I do sometimes have bleeding gums. Although this is usually only when I floss in one area recently. Afterwards he tells me actually he can t remember whether he got tested 2 weeks ago, and he claimed how he slept with hundreds of people and he did drugs and has friends who are HIV pos. He said he got checked himself as he did unprotected sex. I felt sick, I went home and felt very very ill.
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 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 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?
Avatar f tn Red and swollen gums is just one of the symptoms of gingivitis. other indications of gingivitis are bleeding gums and bad breath.Proper oral health hygiene is the best way in preventing red and swollen gums. so,you have to consult with dentist as soon as possible.
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 n tn And how do you know you have a staph infection again? My son has had a staph infection and it was initially very localized but it spread to his blood stream overnight and he literally had the craters over his entire body head to toe at intervals. Was very frightening. Luckily he did respond to antibiotics. I've read that when staph recurs you need to change your diet to all healthy, get rest, build your immune system.
Avatar m tn I have been treated for a staph infection I caught from unprotected Oral Sex 7 weeks ago in Thailand. (Coag Neg Staph). It had infected my penis, testicles, bladder, ureathera and probably prostate. The doc first treated me emperically for the regular STDs. Nothing worked and it spread. Eventually I got a swab and was given Ceftraxone 1 shot 500mg the same day. 5 days later the lab reported staph and gave a sensitivity analysis.
Avatar m tn A friend of mine has a staph infection in the hip. can the staph infection be spread to others? if so how?
