That SUCKS!!! Do you have an infection too? I had a MRSA infection on my bicep and just after 2-3 days my arm looked like a body builders and was SO painful. An abscess was removed leaving me with a huge hole in my arm with undermining/tunneling. OUCH!!!
I was given the pills, showering stuff and nose cream to get rid of my MRSA but to be honest I was so overwhelmed with all that was going on with me I did not follow through with the showering and nose stuff. The nose cream is SO GROSS!!!
However, my last staph infection was not MRSA...so does that mean I may not have it anymore, or that I was lucky?
I'm also kind of okay with my chart stating I haven't been cleared for MRSA yet b/c when I have my surgery I'm going to get a private room and my husband can stay with me in the extra bed. : )
Good luck with your treatment!!! Aren't those antibiotics something else?! The orange/red pills made my potty a bright red every morning...the first time I saw it I about
v-lined it straight to the ER b/c the last thing I needed was blood from another area of my body! : )
