Avatar n tn can a recurrent staph infection caused by a foreign body left from surgery cause permanent nerve damge?
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 too have had the Staph infection. Mine settled in the left testicle and I had emergency surgery to have it removed. The infection was quite bad a the scrotum swelled up to the size of a grapefruit and eventualy the skin broke. After my surgery the scrotum was left open to heal from the inside out. For the next 2 months the scrotum was packed with saline soaked gauze every 6 hours. Not fun.
Avatar f tn My daughter had a staph infection after having a c-section. At the time she had the infection and before it was diagonised, she was unable to stand or walk. Seems it settled in her hip. This was a year ago, and she still complains every once in a while of pain in the hip. Could this be long term effects from the infection? Will this disease cause long term effects?
Avatar m tn On Aug 3, 09, I had a revision of my total hip replacement that had been present for 6 years. The pelvic part had loosened. Three weeks later, I was diagnosed with a Staph infection around the implant. The surgeon took out the pelvic implant, flushed the area and reinstalled another implant. The Staph was sensitive to Cephelaxin(not a MRSA). In November, had hip pain with a recurrent infection. Both implants were removed and an antibiotic spacer was put in.
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 n tn The doctor will no longer see me that did the surgery in the first place. Or give me the records to see if i had staph infection in my leg.
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 girlfriend almost died from a staph infection she got from a surgery and we ad unprotected sex ,and she went to the doctor and was diagnosed with chlamydia weeks after we had sex I got texted and it came back negative, could her staph infection have cause that or a miss read on the test.
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 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 Do you mean you had a count of 100,000 Staph bacteria? I doubt you had 100,000 species of Staph. There are several types of bacteria that can cause a UTI. One is Staph, another is E.Coli. As long as they gave you the correct medication and your UTI cleared up, then there is nothing to be concerned about.
