Common Questions and Answers about What is mupirocin good for


Avatar m tn Since I've had brain surgery years ago, then a brain bleed recently, it makes it hard for me to separate what's going on and what is coming from what. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar m tn You need to check what is causing this. If antibiotics have not worked then there is a chance that this is caused by yeast and this would need to be checked and confirmed. If it is caused by Malasezzia Pityrosporum yeast then antibiotics will be of no use and may even make it worse. Bacteria and yeasts compete for space on your skin so if you are killing the bacteria with antibiotics then the yeast is able to grow with even more ease.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn indeed a few days before the spots appeared i had eaten a basketful of the hotest hot wings Buffalo wild wings makes and was left stranded for a good while by my waitress with out napkins or drink lol. so leave it to me to be a hypocondract (suck at spelling i know) so ill keep posted if this turns out to be correct.
Avatar n tn They present as pimples or pustules located around a hair follicle that may crust over. Topical antiseptic treatment is adequate for most cases. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment can be applied on the lesions. Some patients may require a course of oral antibiotics to help bring about a resolution. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn When I first started shaving, at about age sixteen, I was unable to shave every day due to razor irritation and, in fact, still can't shave every day with a bladed razor, but can with an electric, though I am not sure if this is significant. My wife has had, for years, the same problem, but all over her body, most common on her arms and legs. Although her "infected follicles" do seem to be worse and last longer, seemingly healing more slowly.
Avatar n tn Hi, It is good that your viral culture was negative. If you have doubts with this test, a blood testing antibodies to the herpes simplex virus may be done. Otherwise, this could be an inflammation of the hair follicles or folliculitis. Symptoms usually present as rash, pimple or pustules located around a hair follicle that may crust over. This typically occur on neck, axilla, or groin area and may be present as genital lesions.There may be associated itching present.
Avatar n tn I have not had a new sexual partner since. A week ago she was experiencing some discomfort after sex (which is very normal for her; she has endometriosis) anyways, she has constantly had this kind of pain, and long story short she had a whole list of tests done: urine tests, pregnancy tests, bloods test, STD tests, the overall readout she was clean. So that means she doesn't have an STD, and I was given a clean bill before we got together. I know she has been faithful...

Avatar m tn The physician could not tell whether it was a bite, but was more concerned that it might be community-based MRSA and gave me a prescription for Mupirocin. I went to a dermatologist on Monday and again she was not sure what it was. The first lesion is nearly healed, but I've had about 3 others appear on the same arm which are healing. Yesterday I discovered a larger lesion, which was scaly, circular with the small hole in it.
Avatar m tn As the title says... "What is this big zit-like swell in the inner-thigh near the pubis?" I have a photo also for more "visual aid"... I woke up this morning and realized I had that. Some puss came out of it. I am also wondering : -How long will it take for it to go away? -Is it just a "normal" zit? -Will it come back after it goes away? -Should I worry about having more appear in the next couple of days?
Avatar n tn I went to my doctor some years ago and I was told it is a form of acne and completely harmless. She said not to pop them that they will either pop on there own or just go away. It is caused from heat and moisture, so they are like heat bumps and acne. So dont worry, you'll be ok. Unfortunately there isnt any treatment for them especially being in the genitals area you really cant put any creams down there.
Avatar n tn Hello, You can use the antibiotic cream that your dermatologist has prescribed. Basically folliculitis is caused by a bacterial infection and hence the antibiotic cream will decrease the symptoms. You can use the warm compresses and warm water and also apply some antiseptics on the boils and infected hair follicles. If the cases are very severe then oral course of antibiotics may be needed. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn If they're hard, subcutaneous, pea sized rocks, that arnt nessacarily painful but there's an uncomfortable pressure and they follow a path begining at my the vaginal opening and going up to the clitorus along the labia majora, don't worry you most likely don't have vagina cancer. But don't take my word for it, that's just what she said, go see a doctor and verify for yourself, but this was the one awnser I didn't see when I was having my freak out.
Avatar m tn I seem to have some very light jock itch and athlete's foot right now too...my skin *****! Does anyone know what is causing these symptoms to occur for such a long period of time? Yes, I shower right after I exercise... See attached picture to see what my chest looked like.
Avatar n tn Whatever is going on, it isn't an STD--which is my only area of expertise. Given what your many doctors have told you, I have to assume nothing abnormal is present.
471737 tn?1327256051 Dear Doctor, What might be a good choice of a topical antibiotic ointment for a stye ? I have an external one on my lower right eyelid now. I have Maxitrol (neomycin + polymyxin + dexamethasone) and Terramycin (oxytetracycline + neomycin) ointments. I have have a bottle of Maxitrol eye drops. Are drops suitable for external styes ? If topical treatment doesn't work, how about a course of oral antibiotics like Bactrim ? Thank you.
Avatar m tn the one on the bottom of my testcle sack i have had for about a week now it started out the size of a rice grain and now its about the size of a dime looks like a boil to me and its paintful to touch just as an ingrown hair is. . idk if i have caught something or what and would love to have another persons input on what this may be.... please respond to this post giving any suggestions you have here is an image of the thing on my testicle sack.... http://geocities.com/kknown22/image001.
Avatar n tn Ive had a red postule that is maybe half a centimeter in diameter for three months now in my pubic area. I originally thought that it was just an ingrown hair but i could never fish out any hair, ive tried to find any hair and there is nothing there. Also, it fills up with pus. It hasn't really gotten any bigger and it is the only one that i have. It doesn't hurt too much unless it rubs against something hard or i pop it.
Avatar n tn ps i was never circumcised, and never had a problem, my hygene is good. can you throw any light on my problem, iam 48 and never had this before.
Avatar n tn Sonie...what is it they are suggesting you do...what are they saying they intend to do to help you fight this stuff? They have to have some sort of plan.....are you still at home? I Googled MRSA.... seems on 3/16/06 the FDA fast tracked a drug....Cerexa (PDI-0903) for treatmend of MRSA. I don't know if this info will help, but at least it gives you a question to ask of your treating physician. Why did you mention the clinic in Cleveland...was it suggested as a place for you to go for treatment?
Avatar m tn All I want to know is could it sound like folliculitis??? Maybe even what type of Folliculitis? I'm kinda freaking out so any knowledgeable response is welcome. And I have a derm appt in 2 weeks. here are the links to 3 other pics. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b138/rryderz4/0331091622b.jpg http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b138/rryderz4/0331091622a.jpg http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b138/rryderz4/0331091622.
Avatar n tn Hi there. Sorry, I forgot about this post. After 4 long months of being on steroids and allergy medicine as well as seeing numerous specialists and a dermatologist there still was no answer to my condition. The fact that I had a severe reaction to cipro was just not accepted. I also had two allergy tests and tested positive to nothing. Long story short, I went to a homeopath. I'm fortunate that I am German and am familiar and open to homeopathy.
Avatar f tn I have the exact same issue. This has been going on for about 2 years now. Look into the Anti Candida diet. Even though I am a male, and Candida overgrowth is more common in women, I have just started it and am seeing small results. My theory is since I have been on a constant antibiotic, there is no more "good" bacteria left in my system which is creating an off balance immune system.
Avatar f tn For the past 1 1/2 to 2 wks my scalp has been itching more than usual for me. My granddaughter had spent the night w/me and she'd had lice, but had "treatments for it". So I thought I got lice from her. So I had my daughter look at my head. She said all she saw was tiny red smooth dots all over my scalp and told me she thought it was chiggers. Later on, my brother looked and told me they were smooth, tiny red dots too, but said they were not chiggers.
Avatar n tn the only thing i'm kind of worried about is that no one has the exact diagnosis for what is going around here. And I don't really like to take too many drugs in my system. Well thanks a lot. I'll post again if it clears up in a week and runs hopefully its course.
Avatar n tn Hi. Have you been able to figure out what this is? My husband is 32 years old and has been suffering with the same thing for the past 4 years! I am a nurse and beyond frustrated because we have been to at least 5 different dermatologists and no one can give us any answers. To whoever says it is acne you could not be more wrong! Please let me know if you ever discovered what the cause is.
