Common Questions and Answers about Staph infection rash pictures


Avatar n tn Lupus symptoms vary, and early lupus symptoms include fatigue, joint pain, fever, and a lupus rash, especially after being in the sun. Familiarize yourself with pictures of the lupus rash. Doctors diagnose lupus by symptoms and blood tests. Lupus is not contagious but has a hereditary component. it doesnt sound lie you have Rheumatoid arthritis...
Avatar f tn the size of the mystery itself is smaller, like the size of a pencil eraser. Any ideas? We had researched staph infections and some pictures looked similar, but he has no other symptoms, the area is not hot to the touch, no one else in the family has infection of any kind, and this has been here for months, if not much longer. thanks for any ideas.
Avatar f tn I have looked up things like staph infection, impetigo, and many others but it just doesn't look like that. There has been no discharge from the bumps that I have noticed.
Avatar f tn Hi, you may try the dermatology expert forum ..... did the Dr dismiss Strep infection from past strep infection maybe went unoted? But, I'm not sure what that looks like exactly.
Avatar m tn As for whether this is HSV or not, if she gave it to you, why do you have a new rash too. Conversely, if you gave it to her, why do you have a new rash. Furthermore, location and extent of lesions is atypical for HSV. This could be related to scabies or some other infestations or a reaction to some sort of cream of lotion that you both got on it. The best thing you can do is not squeeze it (as I said before).
Avatar f tn 6 weeks ago my 12 year old daughter woke up with what looked like a rug burn on her cheek. The next morning, there was another spot on her other cheek. Basically, for 6 weeks her face keeps getting new spots. We have seen 2 peditricians and 2 dermatologists. They do not know what it is. She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using Altabax ointment. Still, no improvement.
Avatar n tn we went to the urgent care center because about a year ago he had a severe staph infection and was treated pretty easily with an antibiotic injection (rocephin??). at this visit they said it was folliculitis and tinea something (ringworm). the dr. gave a rx of doxycycline twice daily for a week and told us to pick up some cream for athletes foot.
Avatar m tn Does this look like some sort of Eczema or a skin infection? I will take any advice I can get. Thank you!! Pictures of the rash: http://imgur.
1577647 tn?1296195515 The doctor stepped backwards cautiously and put on gloves. If I have more information or if I can get some pictures of the rash up, I'll let you know. This is all I know at the moment. The rash was given to him by a resident at his Nursing Home. A lady that he needs to assist to walk or get out of bed even. The rash spreads and isn't effected by Ivarest, Calamine Lotion, Hydrocortizone, Benedryl, Zyrtec, or anything of that nature that we've found.
Avatar m tn I figure that it is just my body fighting off an infection, but now I'm not sure if it is an infection it is fighting. Is it possible that the swabs are just picking up the normal Staphylococcus aureus that I've tested positive for in the past? Would a biopsy be the next step to figuring out what this is on my leg? The only pictures I have found online that match what is on my leg are for leukemia. Is it possible that my doctor is doing to biopsy to check for this?
Avatar f tn Hi, sounds like it could be a staph pyoderma infection of the skin. you can google this and also look at the site "" it will show a photo of it. Or just google "photo's of canine staph or skin infections on belly area". I had to take one of my boys to a doggie dermatologist, he has severe allergies and also had some yeast and staph infections on his skin, especially belly/underarm/thigh areas.
Avatar m tn Hard to really understand the symptoms but sounds similar to somethig i experienced earlier this year. Could be a skin staph infection. Itches quite a bit and if you scratch at it, you open the sores and it will puss over. Mine was treatable with a heavy duty anti biotic and went away in about 2 - 3 weeks. Aside from anti biotics, make sure you keep the area clean and dry.
Avatar n tn which is helping tremendously but I am still dealing with a staph infection, as a side effect, probably brought on by all the horrible itching. ( I have already taken so many other medications I will not go into that here.) ("Anti-histimines" do NOT help.) My prayers and well wishes go out to all of you suffering out there. But take heart! VS will have to face US now...!
Avatar f tn I have the rash and bruising went to urgent care she gave me Cortizone tablets with Benadril prescription form. Let me tell you the Cortizone tablets relieves the itching. My Dr is doing the same thing as every other doctor and doing allergy test. Going to ask him to test me for Lupus and Leukemia and everything else they can test me for.

Avatar n tn I seem to have the same rash on my back thigh, its red and it itches quite a bit. I thought it was a staph infection but didn't see any pus. My mom suggested poison ivy.
Avatar f tn Since someone mentioned a possible fungal infection as the cause of the rash I'm going to try colloidal silver spray for a few weeks starting tonight.
Avatar n tn Recently I've noticed a sore on my genitals (on the inside of my labia) it seems very similar to a canchre sore, but does not hurt, itch, or cause any sensitivity at all. I've attempted to rule out Herpes Simplex 2 and HPV/Genital Warts simply because it is one sore and one sore only, none elsewhere, no open cuts or lesions.
Avatar f tn anyway, you can get folliculitus from hot tubs, spas, pools that are not adequately clorinated. It's a staph infection/inflamation of the follicules. the bacteria thrives in the warm water. the bumps are red, itchy and some can blister/pus. if your family has a mild case then you don't need to treat it but if its severe, then an antibiotic, anticeptic or cream will help. you may want to give the hotel a call and let the owner know what happened. someone else is bound to get it too.
Avatar n tn I have had several opinions on it from people telling me it looks like poison oak or a staph infection but after reviewing some pictures online, it just doesn't seem to match those pictures. I was out in the woods, cutting firewood so poison oak would match the scenario but again, it does not itch. Any advice or opinions on what I should do to treat it or at what point I should see a doctor would be helpful. Thank you.
Avatar n tn If you develop a bacterial infection in the rash, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic lotion or oral antibiotics. Cover the affected area. Bandages or dressings can help protect the affected area. This may be especially important if you scratch during your sleep. Avoid things that increase itching. Limit your time in the tub or shower. Bathe in warm — not hot — water. Use gentle cleansers or gels with added moisturizer. Gently pat your skin dry. Use plenty of moisturizer.
Avatar n tn The new doctor said the rash back in November may have been herpes, and then I caught a staph infection at the same time. Any advice on what the tests mean? Any advice on what to do next? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn This sounds like a minor staph infection, and shaving is only making it worse. You need to get this checked out by a doctor since its not going away.
Avatar f tn Last week I got food poinsoning then 6 days ago two small bumps came up on my buttocks that then turned into one big white rash about the size of a quarter. Three doctors looked at but could not figure out what it is. They said anything from Moloscum to staph to strep to shingles to a very slight chances of herpes. Yesterday I went to the dermatologist and after looking at it for 10 secs she very rudely said you have HSV 2 and did not give much info on the std.
Avatar m tn I am very worried as I am not sure if this is an allergic reaction to maybe my detergent, a staph infection, dry skin, or maybe even nummular eczema that i have read about online. Please can someone help me to pinpoint what this could be? I am going to get some Benadryl tonight just in-case it might be allergies or hives in an early stage or something or even possibly an allergic reaction to the medicine. Included are some pics (and some additionally here) Lower Back Rashes - http://img684.
Avatar f tn In addition you may have scratched the pimples they cause and got a staph infection. So if there are crusty areas or areas that have blisters these may need a topical antibiotic. If it isn't that you can try to send a photo on here. I may not be able to figure it out but it is worth a try. Let me know if you have trouble sending a photo.
Avatar n tn It is your duty as parents to have this properly investigated and all possible tests taken to find out the cause of this rash DO NOT assume it is Herpes just because it looks similar to pictures on the Internet rashes can be caused by many things not every rash is Herpes related in fact most are not ...... Have him checked over as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn If it is a single overall rash with little sores then strep/staph is also a possibility. You should immediately seek medical advice and request a swab of the rash be taken and properly typed for HSV1 and HSV2. Also request a blood test for IgG antibodies, type specific for HSV1 and HSV2 to understand your baseline.
Avatar f tn he also needs to get testing done to see if indeed he does have a recurrence of his staph infection back or not. He also needs to take his infections more seriously and properly treat them. the incidence of MRSA infections is high and not treating them properly can actually lead to needing surgical intervention as well as IV antibiotics in the hospital potentially. did they test your vaginal discharge for infections too?
Avatar n tn I have had no symptoms in any other area of my genitals. Could it be Folliculitis? or a Staph infection? Can the latter two spread across the buttocks in such a manner. One other thing that is worrying me is that my GF developed a boil on her right buttocks about 2 weeks ago. That has almost healed completely and she did not have to go to the doctor. She now has one "pimple" near her waistline. Does my GF's symptoms worry you or change your diagnosis at all?
