I had a few angry "pimples" along my panty line and in my armpit, suspected it was MRSA and it was. They were not bad, though. It seems it didn't go away completely with the antibiotic, because it is back.
I can't remember what I took before but my family doc gave me Rx for tetracycline this time. That's not going to work!... I'm thinking, so I haven't taken it yet. No use in causing a flare if it's not even going to work. I need to go back to the derm doc.
Michigoose, what were you given?
Be sure to load up on probiotics!!
