Question: Hi, my name is Kris, my question is about MRSA, I had an outbreak a couple months ago in the form of folliculitis
, on both calves, thighs and an area on my stomach, it came on suddenly and spread quickly, I was treated and my symptoms have seemed to resolve, I also had a nasal swab done that tested negative, I've also followed decolonization procedures very thoroughly, I'm now using prebiotics
and probiotics as well, still showering twice a day and using hibiclens
, but I'm now paranoid about every bump or spot I see on my body, I'm noticing every little detail on my skin, I notice quickly when I have a pimple on my back or wherever, I've also dealt with mild acne
since my teenage years, that doesn't help matters, the question I have is will MRSA typically always come about quickly and aggressively like it did when I had it previously, with pain, redness
, and warmth and a large pustule, or can it take a sort of acne like form where it's more like a normal pimple that resolves on it's own? I've had a couple decent size pimples
on my back recently, not really painful or anything, seems like nothing out of the ordinary, but I can't help but wonder if it's the MRSA and it's just not acting as aggressively? Thanks.
