Oh yes, I plan to have my labs done next week. The bacteria found in the syringes is Serratia Marcescens. Vanc does not cover this particular bacteria, I was sure hoping it did. Alot of the cillins are given, but I am allergic to them but there are other drugs I can be given if I test positive. I just did the 3 pill ZPack and its got my stomach in such an uproar, this is due to the UC and Chrons. I am staying very close to my small library with plenty of reading material & Seek A Words, lol. I have to laugh or I will cry.
I am having weird skin issues, blisters as a matter of fact. I had a small blister hanging off my ear lobe and I could not tell what it was. I thought it was a piece of skin hanging, I pulled and the blister not only broke but the whole piece of blistered skin came off in my hand. It finally healed after 3 1/2 wks. I just now have a blister on the bottom of my foot at the wide part. Its bigger than a dime. I dipped a needle in alcohol and tried to pop it, a little clear fluid came out. Next day could barely stand to walk on my foot because it hurt so bad. By evening I had enough, got my trusty alcohol & needle again. This time I barely got the needle in and pus shot across the bathroom. Its a mess, but finally no more pus in it. Every tiny cut or scratch on me gets infected.
I am still having issues with my legs. The problems with them has gone on for over 2 yrs. I am still having some swelling, but the bottom of my legs are still running fever. The skin is all cracked and getting ready to peel again. After the fever lets up they always peel like a sunburn. But, here is the kicker, the fever is present when I wake up in the am. During the course of the day the fever may or may not go away in my legs. From what the dr told me and what I have read cellulitis is an infection of the skin and tissues. Anyway, I am really ready to checkis other thing out.....Susie
