Avatar n tn You could, or you could have a staph infection that has caused this and the rest of your symptoms. I'd get it checked out.
6403762 tn?1381712518 If it comes to a small white head then use a sterilized pair of tweezers and pop the head. Be careful because I did develop a staph infection during my first pregnancy. So next time you go to the doc have them check it.
1570504 tn?1295634828 Staph is infectious so you have to be careful with anyone she comes into physical contact with. It seems that people who get one staph infection are prone to others for some reason.
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 f tn If you shave down there it could be a staph infection. It will hurt a bit but to get rid of it pop it with a sterile needle and squeeze out the pus. After you drain it clean the area with hydrogen peroxide. If it doesn't go away on it's own after you do this or if you are too scared to pop it yourself you might need antibiotics to get rid of it.
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 n tn I would go to the ER immediately because it is an open wound staph(Staphylococcus) infection and get it treated asap!!!
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 It could be a Staph infection perhaps impetigo. Do they get crusty after they pop? Try topical antibiotics such as neosporin see if they go away. Don't scratch or pick at them it will spread them. Where are they located?
Avatar f tn That sounds like a bad case of Staph infection or a really bad yeast infection. If it's less like cottage cheese (I know it's gross, but it's rare for it to hurt on males), then it is probably a staph infection. It might be embarrassing, but go to the ER and they should give you a cream or antibiotics, sometimes both. If you feel uncomfortable, have a male doctor take a look and bring your girl along.
Avatar n tn m wondering if this is indeed a herpes recurrence or another staph infection. I am going to get a blood test for herpes at a clinic as I am in between health care coverage so can't really see my derm for another culture. Thanks!
Avatar n tn However, you might have a minor staph infection. Find an std clinic near you and go for free or very low cost. In the meantime, do NOT try and pop it or squeeze it anymore. You can make it worse, and make it much harder for a doctor to diagnose.
974371 tn?1424653129 Anyway, doctor called me this evening to say it was Staph/MRSA and the Bactrim was the right antibiotic. Scared the hell out of me ( ESP with all the news coverage of that poor girl). So it is about 3 weeks out with this and he said if it were going to get worse, would have done so by now. I noticed just today that where he took the culture there is a very small pustule coming up. The original scratch and the one under my arm seem to be healing.
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.
