Reoccurring staph infection. Cause and cure? - Online Doctor Chats
I have staph infection from last six months....it's reoccurring every months...
I took some antibiotics for it..but I guess it,s works for couple of weeks and later it reapeears
may i know which part do u have the infection ?
It was in left armpit
do u have any absess or pus collection ?
Now one small in right armpit
do u happen to have a oily skin ? and sweat excessively ?
Now thr is no pus collection...it was thr six month
Sweat a lot..six month back done pus culture
do use use any anti perspirant duoderant ?
So do I need surgery to get rid of it?
No I don't use duo ,nowadays...
you should always use a good antiperspirant, , so that excess sweat is not collected
excess sweat collection, can result in bacterial over growth
such overgrowth can cause repeated infections , as u are having now
Oh ok...now I got ....
the other cause , can be presence of a chronic infection inside the arm glands
so , that should be ruled out by your doctor
whom were u consulting till date ?
Dr XXXXX in cmh XXXXXXX
Is she a General physician or a surgeon ?
what has she diagnosed so far ? and has she mentioned any presence of inner infection ?
She asked me to do pus culture n from that she ask me take antiboitics cipla is tablet name
Is thr any test to find inner infection?
Or doctors can decide by seeing infection?
no, that can be done by a physical examination
if there is any thickness in the skin, any pain on pressure on the site, redness, etc , indicates a persisting infection
Earlier it was thr...now only small boil will come
and you can consult your doctor, and get a better antibiotic
Ok...sure thanks a lot...
Good night doctor!!!!!
once the healing is complete, to prevent recurrence keep the area clean and use dettol or Savlon again
if u shave your underarms, use new razors
and use savlon again, after shaving
this will disinfect the skin , and prevent skin infections
hope u followed my suggestions
Yeah...will help lot...thank you again sir
