655242 tn?1229472744 My daughter has had a mild staph infection that keeps coming back but hers are on her skin and they are just little red spots. So maybe now I have a staph infection in my nose? I used her nasal cream but so far 2 uses and it has not helped. Any of these sound like they couold be the reason? I have never had this happen before. Thanks for your help!
Avatar m tn Then after that the boils kept returned and I did some research on the internet and was pretty with it was a staph infection, then I got tested by the doctors and while they were kinda vague, was apparently a staph infection in my nose. That was almost a year ago, though I've had several minor boils since then. Now my left nostril is swelling up and has become very painful, red & sore.
Avatar m tn Hi Yep, It appears that this staph aureus, can be got on the skin, nose or rectum, The symptoms of MRSA in the rectum can start with pimples or boils. The rectum may be swollen and inflamed with the infection. Small bumps on the skin can quickly turn into painful abscesses that may require draining by a doctor. Do hope his helps.
Avatar f tn Sounds like he needs to see a dr to see if he has some kind of staph infection in his blood, that is causing the pimples/boils.
Avatar n tn In that case, you must see an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) as soon as possible to make sure there is no viral infection of your eye. Impetigo, a bacterial infection, usually caused by Staph aureus. This infection is highly contagious and needs to be treated with antibiotics. And there are many others. I recommend a consultation with a dermatologist as soon as possible to determine the cause of your rash. Disclaimer: Dr.
Avatar f tn I have had a MRSA infection inside of my nose, your nose is the most sensitive part, I had to see a ear, nose, thorat doctor for, mine, they actually went inside my nose to drain the sore, I was also under the care of an infectious doctor, but if were me, just because I know how nasty MRSA is, I wouldn't wait, I would go to my doctor and tell him what I was experincing.
Avatar n tn Tired of being sick and would love a cure and it all is coming together after my doctor said it looked like I had a staph infection which affects your heart, lungs, kidneys and skin ect. everything I had issues with and some of issues my daughter has had. SO if it can stay in your body forever and the antibodic just treat it while it is flared up and mask it would there be anything that would get it out of your body for good?
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 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 am just researching staph bacteria that live undetected upon skin usually inside nose for sure, but also on top of skin waiting for an opening or scratch or even a hair follicle opening. Staph bacteria apparently can be or go anywhere, but most commonly deals with skin. The MRSA, is a staph bug which developed strength against antibiotics through past wars, its offspring passed on to other people.
Avatar m tn You can use non-talc powder in the private areas and be sure if you have any boils or scabs to wash the towels each time as well as any shirts and so forth to not reuse them. The nose can carry staph as well and you can reinfect yourself that way. If those things are not the problem you may have resistance to the antibiotic they gave you. The treatment for community acquired MRSA (if you have that) is now daptomycin plus tigecycline. Otherwise, you can get resistance and the staph grows back.
Avatar f tn My two decades of my own research - not these doctors is that it could be related to staph infection of the nose! I started taking large amounts 2000 mg + /day to combat this and have great success with it. I'm not consistent with it, so the symptoms return. My doctor won't give me a round of the very strong anti-biotic and has not offered to take a culture of it.
Avatar n tn i had the allergy testing on my arms and he took a swab through my nose and throat. im on antibiotics now for the staph infection for two weeks but it doesnt seem to be helping. im not on any medication for the flare ups because we dont know what is causing it. unless theres a univeral medication to help lower the flare ups of the skin for anything.
Avatar f tn I have been to 3 different ENTs, one tested me for staph - came back moderate staph (not MRSA) and took Keflex for 10 days-no improvement. Tested again 5 days after last culture and came back negative. Said I should use Bacitracin for a year as Bactroban burned. (I am allergic to all antibiotics but 2 and most other drugs-happens over time) 2nd ENT said Bacitracin irritates and easy to get allergic to it. Already allergic to Neosporin.
Avatar n tn Hi I do not think so since a staphylococcal infection usually affects the skin and in cases wherein the infection follows surgery , it is the skin or the surgical site which is affected. As for nerve damage, viral infections wherein the organisms usually stay dormant within the nerve, may more likely cause nerve related symptoms. Nerve damage occurs due to lack of blood supply which may be secondary to a blood clot, inflammation or spasms caused by an infection or vascular problems eg stroke.
Avatar f tn Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Staph infections are caused by staphylococcus bacteria, a type of germ commonly found on the skin or in the nose of even healthy individuals. Most of the time, these bacteria cause no problems or result in relatively minor skin infections. But staph infections don't always remain skin-deep. In some circumstances, they may invade your bloodstream, urinary tract, lungs or heart.
Avatar n tn I have a staph infection the starts on the corners of my mouth. I went to see a Dermatologist and we took a culture. He informed that is was Staph. I don't remember which version. I was given Bactroban and some oral, I think Moxcecilin (sp?) as I pehnotically spell it. It cleared up. A few days later it came back. I took the oral and the bactroban did nothing. It spread to my ear, genitals, and my nose. I got another prescrption for the oral. It cleared up.
Avatar f tn I have two tiny red bumps under my septum that doesn't itch and looks like a couple of pimples. I dismissed it when I saw them form a few days ago as I every once in a while will get pimples around my face area. But I am not prone to severe acne. Today the two pimples look as though they are filled with pus. They tingle slightly but no itching or burning. I have been having sinus issues and blowing my nose all week. Been feeling great other than these typical sinus issues.
Avatar f tn The sinus rinse has helped the mucus in my nose but still it’s so irritated inside! I swear it’s staph but maybe I am wrong. I am not looking for trouble. I hope I am wrong & it’s something stupid. Again did creams & some antibiotics. Maybe it’s a fungal thing. Been using Xylitol which is antifungal. The side of nose is tender too. But again had scans inflammation & cyst/polyp. Ideas???
Avatar n tn This is a skin infection caused by a staphylococcus (staph) bacterial infection. The contagious form of the infection can be caused by staph or streptococci (strep) bacteria. The bacteria infection is characterized by skin blisters and lesions. Although adults can get Impetigo is most common in children. This condition is contagious, so don't share towels etc. And explain to him not to touch the area, because he can spread it.
431531 tn?1254098206 Hi everyone. I too have a sore nose tip. The reason that people are getting so many explanations from their doctors is that there are many possible causes for these symptoms. One of the disciplines in medicine is to resist the urge to accept a single explanation until all of the others have been ruled out. This is the danger of doctoring yourself by doing google searches. It is a natural impulse to want to find the ONE answer, and once one fits settle on that one.
