Avatar f tn I have a client who has been telling me for over a year that while she was incarcerated on a minor offense she contracted a staph infection. Due to her having some mental impairments, none of the physicians in our small town will test her. She has described large pockets of infectious material all over her body and even cut one open to see if anything came out. One MD told her the pockets were fat globules.
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. Went to doctor and he thinks it is a staph infection put me on antibodic and gave me a shot. Told me if it got worse to go to hospital. 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 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 d been on morphine for a week and other drug cocktails. I had a staph infection even with intensive care around my stapling, they slammed Vancomycin in my system as soon as they saw the tell tale signs, it's pretty common these days with our generation being given anti-biotics at every sniffle. That's why they have those Public announcements on tv not to take anti-biotics.
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?
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?
Avatar f tn I had my daughter and was kept in hospital due to a Staph infection. Is this in anyway related to herpes? Does a staph infection show up if you have herpes? I am herpes type 2 positive. I have however believed that I caught this after I gave birth but just thinking back because I had this staph infection when I gave birth could I have had herpes then cause of it? Is it in anyway linked?
Avatar m tn Staph infections can be very difficult to treat. Staph bacteria can produce toxins and can cause various infections (wound, skin, toxins and if unlucky, septicemia/bacteremia). It may be killed by chlorine in the water but will not be killed on the skin especially if the bacteria is deeper and protected by the skin and tissue. The chlorine level may not be high enough to actually kill off the bacteria especially since some strains of Staph. auerus tend to be pretty tough.
