Twenty four years ago I had Hepatitis B & Staph in my blood. I currently keep getting sinus infections with neck stiffness & was just diagnosed with Staph (cellulitis & folliculitis) again. No blood work was done. Will my Hepatitis B awaken due to this? What do you recommend I do?
Hi! I appreciate your concern about the Hepatitis B virus infection. Your present problem is due to cellulitis and folliculitis which is normally caused by staph aureus infection which will resolve if you take proper antibiotics like Cloxacillin for a period of 7 days along with pain killers. Hepatitis B virus will not cause the sinus infection or cellulitis or folliculitis. Take care!
